SIC is the Affordable Choice!

You know college is important to your future. You also know it can be expensive. So, if you plan to invest in a four-year degree, how can you get a quality education that’s affordable?

Besides applying for financial aid and scholarships early (starting in October for the following year), you can choose an excellent community college for two years before moving on to a university.

Southeastern offers one of the lowest tuition rates in the state at $106 per credit hour for in-district students.  SIC's online classes have the same in-district tuition cost regardless of location!

Compared to 4-year public universities in Illinois, attending SIC first can save transfer students more than $20,000  in tuition and fees!

Let’s break it down:

1 year at Southeastern Illinois College=$3,780
1 year at an Illinois public university=$13,480
Save more than $20,000 in tuition and fees with two years at SIC!

(Save nearly $50,000 total cost!)

Add that to the fact that more than 70% of our students receive scholarships or other forms of financial aid, and there’s just no reason to look elsewhere for that first two years of college.
