Our education is a more affordable option. In-county tuition is $116 per credit hour. At a time when most four-year colleges and universities are moving online, AACC's tuition has always been low cost, high value in comparison. Our no-interest payment plan, financial aid and more than 200 scholarships help to offset the already low cost of tuition.
