Centralia College's online degrees offer an affordable alternative to most private online colleges and universities, and many public institutions. Traditionally online institutions typically charge $300.00 - $500.00 per credit. At Centralia College, online tuition is less than $100.00 per quarter credit for Washington state residents enrolling in 15 or more credits per quarter.
Out-of-state students still pay less than $110.00 per quarter credit for our online instruction when enrolled in 15 or more credits per quarter. This means our online students save at least $20,000.00 in tuition and fees by choosing Centralia College over other private online institutions. Refer to our current catalogs and quarterly schedules for detailed explanation of tuition and fees, which are included in the costs above.
CENTRALIA COLLEGE IS UNIQUE IN ONLINE INSTRUCTION
Centralia College is unique among other online schools. First and foremost, we occupy a traditional college campus. We enjoy a beautiful tree-lined mall, stone walkways, and several instruction buildings.
Washington Hall encapsulates 66,000 square feet of classrooms, lecture halls, computer labs, and a 500-seat performing arts theatre. The Walton Science Center is our newest building and is a three story 70,000 square foot "state-of-the-art science center" . Unlike almost every other online college or university, Centralia College will never be located in a strip mall, industrial park, or office building.
