Independence, Kansas, July 11, 2018– The US Department of Education has released its 2018 College Affordability and Transparency Reports, and Independence Community College has been found to have the lowest net price of any institution of higher education in the state of Kansas.
The rankings, which may be found at the website for the US Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center, show the 90 two-year public institutions with the lowest net price in the United States. ICC is the only Kansas college to appear on that list.
“It’s satisfying to see the value of an ICC education validated by the federal government,” said ICC President Dan Barwick. “With the wide variety of tuition and fees throughout higher education, it can be difficult to compare schools. Establishing the net cost is very helpful to people who are trying to understand where the best values are. We work hard to keep costs low to students and to taxpayers.”
According to the Department of Education, the national average net price for the public two-year sector is $7,351 per year. ICC’s net price is $3,570, with 96% of ICC’s students receiving some form of financial assistance through various forms of aid.
The Department of Education’s lists include both community colleges and technical colleges. “One of the things that makes ICC most appealing is that we offer technical programs as well as transfer degrees. There’s something for everyone, at a price anyone can afford,” said Barwick.
Enrollment for the fall 2018 semester continues through August 17.
