COST OF ATTENDANCE
order to determine your yearly cost of attendance at FCC, it
is important to understand the difference between BASE cost
and OUT OF POCKET cost.
the flat dollar amount that represents where each student
begins the financial aid process. This is the cost before
any financial aid funds are taken into account.
Essentially, this is the starting point. For an accurate picture
of the cost of your college education, you must factor in
all financial aid resources, and then examine your OUT OF
POCKET COST cost.
- OUT OF POCKET
the final amount you are responsible for after all financial
aid resources have been taken into account. This is your actual
simple formula would look like this:
- FINANCIAL AID (grants/scholarships/loans)
= OUT OF POCKET COST
total annual base cost is lower than half
of the national average for private colleges and universities.
That puts FCC in the range of state and public institutions.
The reason for this is the annual financial support we receive
from supporting churches, alumni, and other donor individuals
and organizations, which serves to pay much of the initial educational
costs for our students. With one of the most affordable private
Christian educations in the nation available to you, the real
question is, "Can you afford not to be here?"
