$500 Tuition Reduction for the 20-21 Academic Year!

Starting Summer Quarter 2020, each new student (Intensive ESL, High School, and College) taking 12 or more High School or College credits, or 4 Intensive English as a Second Language (IESL) classes, will receive a $500 tuition reduction for a maximum of 2 quarters for the 20-21 Academic Year (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring). This amounts to a tuition savings of $1,000 to students.  For example, if a student starts in Summer Quarter 2020, Fall Quarter 2020, or Winter Quarter 2021, they will receive a tuition reduction of $500 each quarter for two quarters (total of $1,000). However, if a student starts in Spring Quarter 2021, they will receive a tuition reduction for one quarter only (total of $500). Questions? Email iss_fiscal@edcc.edu
