Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is an estimate of the average total cost for you to attend Roxbury Community College for an academic year, intended to assist you in preparing a personal budget.  The annual expenses listed below are calculated for a student who is attending Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.  The Business Office, lists actual tuition and fee charges for actual enrollment levels. Please see Tuition and Fees Page.

This estimate of costs reflects typical "modest but adequate" expense patterns of RCC students based on research conducted by the Office of Financial Aid. The costs are split by Direct Cost (reflected on your student bill) and indirect costs (costs you will need to cover while in school).  While actual expenses will depend on your lifestyle and level of enrollment, the estimated costs listed on this page should assist you in planning your own budget.

While Financial Aid awards are based upon enrollment, financial aid awards are never guaranteed to cover the full cost, either direct or indirect, of enrollment.

Student enrolled in nine or more credits will be charged for the health insurance annual amount unless they carry personal health insurance and waive the health insurance prior to the deadline. See the Business Office website for full information.
