How much will it cost?

Tunxis is one of the most cost-effective options available in higher education. You can save in a number of ways, through Connecticut’s program for free community college (PACT), financial aid and scholarships. Right off the top, you can save more than 60% on your first two years of a bachelor’s degree. Over half of Tunxis students receive financial aid, and the college distributes over $7 million in grants annually.
