15-YCCC-0918-internalKnowing what you owe is as important as understanding the resources you’re going to use to pay for it. The tuition and fee costs of attending YCCC for a full time student enrolled 12+ credits each semester during a typical Fall/Spring semester (academic year) is detailed below. Keep in mind that cost is directly associated with how many credits you enroll for during a given semester. The Maine Community College Board of Trustees sets tuition and fee rates each year by the month of June.

2015 – 2016 Rates

  • $90 per credit hour for in-state students. Most courses are 3 credits or $270.
  • $180 per credit for out-of-state students.
  • Residents of other New England states may be eligible to attend YCCC at reduced out-of-state tuition rates through the Tuition Break program, sponsored by the New England Board of Higher Education. Students who qualify for this program may attend YCCC for 150 percent of the in-state tuition rate.
