Tuition and Fees



Credit Courses

The College Board of Education approves the tuition rate each year. See the chart below to estimate the cost of your course. Some classes include additional fees.

Noncredit Courses

Noncredit courses do not use the tuition rates established by the Board of Education and may vary from program to program. Noncredit courses are offered through a variety of programs and departments including Continuing Education, Adult Basic Education (ABE), General Educational Development (GED), and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Refer to the current term Schedule of Classes to identify the cost for these courses and other program specific costs.

Universal Fee

A universal fee applies to both credit and noncredit classes. The fee is $37 per credit for credit classes and $0.40 per hour for noncredit classes.

Differential Fees

Certain Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs and science courses have a differential fee applied as of Fall term 2019. Select CTE programs have a differential fee applied to all core classes in that program.

Science classes that have a lab component also have a differential fee. The differential fee is $10 per credit hour. For a full list of programs and courses that have differential fees, visit the “Tuition & Fees” page on our website.

Residency for Tuition Purposes

Residency for tuition purposes is determined at the time of admission to Chemeketa.

You are considered an in-state student if you have established a permanent residence within Oregon or a bordering state (California, Idaho, Nevada or Washington) for at least 90 days prior to the term you enroll. Veterans may be considered as a resident for tuition purposes; contact Veterans’ Services for more information. Native American and Alaskan Native students who graduated from an Oregon high school may also be considered as a resident for tuition purposes; contact Admissions for more information.

You are considered an out-of-state student if your permanent address is outside of Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada or Washington. Students holding certain current non-immigrant visas are not eligible for permanent residency.

You may request to change your residency by contacting Enrollment Services at registrar@chemeketa.edu. The College may ask you to provide information proving you meet the residency requirement.
