Tuition and Fees
An Education at Shawnee is Affordable.
Success in college is affordable at Shawnee with one of the lowest college tuitions in the state - a fraction of what you would pay at a university. Our classes easily transfer to most colleges and universities in Illinois, as well as Southeast Missouri State and Murray State. Beginning your first two years with us can cut the cost of typical college education almost in half.
Lab fees are assessed for selected courses based primarily on consumable materials and other related costs.
Technology fees cover technology enhancements at Shawnee Community College. They are charged to all students who attend college. The funds generated from these fees are strictly dedicated to technology improvements which will enhance the learning experience of our students. Some examples are personal computer and software upgrades in labs and classrooms, the addition of smart/multimedia technology in classrooms, and increased broadband.
