SIC is the Affordable Choice!

Affordability Image

Did you know? The price of a four-year university can be up to 5 times more expensive than SIC. Yikes!

A better option. Two years at SIC will give your child the knowledge, confidence, and connections to tackle the challenges of further study or dive into the workforce.  

Time is precious. Your child will get an exceptional, affordable education at SIC and still be home in time for dinner. Win-Win.

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=$13,932
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.
