Tuition Costs

Affordable higher education

Don’t let high tuition costs of other schools keep you from going to college. Nashville State Community College offers affordable tuition, providing opportunities for students to further their education and succeed in their careers.

Upcoming Semester Costs

How much NSCC costs fluctuates each semester. Be sure to view the information for the semester you’re enrolled.

A $25 late fee may be assessed if you have not fully paid your tuition and fees prior to the end of regular registration of the semester of your course.

All tuition & fees are subject to change without notice upon approval of the institution and/or TBR.

If you have any questions about your in-state or out-of-state status, please contact the Bursar's Office.

TN eCampus Fee

TN eCampus courses have an additional fee of $67.00 per credit hour.

For example, a 3 credit hour course would have an additional fee of $201.

Note: TN eCampus courses are all charged at a per-hour rate and viewed separately from other online or face-to-face courses. TN eCampus fees are not included in the full-time cap applicable to all other types of courses. For example, if a student enrolls for 15 hours not including a TN eCampus class, the tuition and fees would be $2252. If a student signs up for 15 hours, including one 3-hour TN eCampus class, the tuition and fees would be $2852. TN Reconnect and TN Promise only pay up to the amount of regular tuition and fees for the hours registered. The additional amount charged because of the TN eCampus class would not be covered by these programs.
