A Reader’s Digest article lists Northland Pioneer College as the least expensive community college in the state of Arizona.
In fact, Northland Pioneer College’s low tuition of $2,250 per year was the fifth lowest in the entire country, behind community colleges in Texas, California and two Native American institutions in New Mexico and North Dakota.
Huffington Post writer Lauren Cahn compiled the lowest tuition rates in each state, finding that, in most cases, community colleges were the most affordable avenue to obtain a post-secondary degree.
“We serve two of the poorest counties in the country, and our tuition is kept low to better provide educational opportunities to those in our service area,” notes Northland President Mark Vest. “This national recognition confirms that a quality education does not have to cost over $50,000 per year. Our students graduate with little or no debt, thanks to generous scholarships and our affordable tuition.”
