Wow. I looked at your tuition rates. Incredible. No wonder California is hemorrhaging money. Maybe y'all should consider some tuition hikes so that your institutions could keep up with demand? You have to wonder whether the system is working as intended when you're sending deserving students into the arms of for-profits.

Problemo. Cost of living here is incredibly high. A lot of people can't even afford the CC rates. I can barely afford it myself. I'm working for 3 temp agencies and recently finished a seasonal position. If it weren't for the fact that I live with family, I'd be homeless. Curious: which tuition rates did you look at?

Community College of San Francisco. Something like $23 per credit hour.

In Okieland, it's $79 and I thought that was really inexpensive. It's at least $100 cheaper than in-state tuition at a public university.

Our community colleges range from 90-140 a credit hour. That's a shocker to someone who paid $45/credit hour for a state university.

City College of SF is $46 per credit unit for California residents. It went up Summer 2012 from $32 prior. Non-residents pay $187.00 + $46.00 enrollment fee per unit.
http://www.ccsf.edu/NEW/en/student-s...-and-fees.html

Additional fees:
  • Student Health Fee (all students): $17.00 (Summer Semester $14.00) (Mandatory)
  • NOTE: Students who qualify in the following categories will be exempted from payment of the health fee:
  • Students who depend exclusively upon prayer for healing in accordance with the teachings of bona fide religious sect, denomination, or organization. (Documentation required.)
  • Students who are attending college under an approved apprenticeship training program.
  • Student Activities Fee: $5 (Optional) (No Student Activities Fee for Summer)
  • Student Representative Fee: $1.00 (Optional) (No Student Representative Fees for Summer)
  • Web4 User Fee: One-time $3.00 fee per semester (No charge during ADD/DROP period)
.


Even if you take a free class, you still have to pay the extra fees.

That's interesting that CC's would charge more than the State U system. I wonder why.

^That's all a shocking bargain... Of course in red states like mine, the legislature has been systematically removing state funding from higher ed.

Our State U system starts at about $250/credit hour for the directional colleges. The University of Michigan is $7225 a semester if you take 12-18 credits. So if you take 12, you pay more than $600 a credit hour. If you take 18, only $400.

And they charge more for higher level courses so for 100-299 level courses, it is cheaper than for 300 level courses and cheaper than 400 level courses. They also vary by major. I just grabbed numbers for the college of education for the University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan. Software engineering? You pay almost double. Of course, you will make almost double the salary, but still.

My "shocker" statement was about my own tuition from 1983-87. Eastern's tuition increased 555%.

That whole system sounds really complicated.

PM_Mama, if you go for Health Information Technology or Health Information Management make sure the program is CAHIIM-accredited so you can sit for the RHIT certification exam, it's often hard to find work without it.

Henry Ford Community College is the place she'll want to go if she goes into this, but it won't be online. PM-Mama- If you do go there, some of my former co-workers teach there and host interns. It's a good program
