Tuition and Fees

Eastern Gateway Community College is very affordable. We continue to have the fourth lowest tuition rates in the state of Ohio!

Eastern Gateway's tuition is third of what The Ohio State University charges. A full-time student will pay about $3,450 for the year while OSU undergraduates will pay over $10,000 for a year in tuition.

At Eastern Gateway, all instructional, general, and surcharge fees are based on the number of credit hours taken and the student's residency status.
