Cost Of Attendance

Affordable cost is one of the many advantages you will have as a student attending a community college. This is especially true if you are planning to earn a bachelor’s degree. By enrolling at BCC for your freshman and sophomore years before transfer- ring to a baccalaureate institution, you can save thousands of dollars on the cost of your education.

BCC charges tuition, a college service fee and a technology fee for every registered credit. The actual cost per credit depends on whether you are taking day, evening and/or online courses, and your residency. The total cost per semester depends on the number of credits taken, the cost of books and supplies, the cost of travel to and from BCC, and any additional expenses and fees.

Students and parents should also note that there are several ways to further reduce the cost of a college education. These include financial aid, a statewide MassTransfer program and the higher education tax incentives provided by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997.
