Net Price Calculator
The Net Price Calculator is a tool designed to help students estimate what it may cost to attend any of the Maricopa Community Colleges or Skill Centers annually. This broad estimate is based on the cost of attendance and the financial aid that was provided to full-time, first-time degree/certificate seeking undergraduate students in 2009-10. Actual net price can vary significantly based on student eligibility and does not represent an actual award. Submission of the FAFSA is the only way to obtain a true and accurate determination of eligibility. Estimates apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students. Visit the Net Price Calculator website.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. Scottsdale Community College complies with these requirements. These rights can be viewed on the FERPA website. Additional information can be found at the Maricopa Community Colleges Office of General Counsel.
