Tuition & Fees

Hocking College - Tuition and Fees | Piggy bank broken with money inside on white backgroundTraditionally, enrolling in college meant that students would be expected to pay one price for their tuition, and then a bunch of other fees for their books, course materials, equipment, etc. In 2019, Hocking College stepped up to offer financially-challenged students a straight forward alternative way to pay for college in the form of their new all-inclusive course fee model.

All-inclusive is defined as, "including everything." At Hocking College, that means that our programs and certificates have a price listed on our website that includes everything. What does this mean for students? It means no surprises, no hidden fees, and (most importantly) no fine print.

For specific pricing by program, please refer to the individual program pages which can be found here.
