Compare that to what you’d pay elsewhere! See our tuition rates for tuition according to your place of residency.

Because the majority of our students work part or full time in addition to attending college, many classes are available not only in the daytime, but also in the evening, on weekends and online. Our Multimedia Learning Center is an open lab facility offering students access to computers and software, along with additional audio and video tools.

The Multimedia Technology program includes comprehensive, hands-on training. Internships, required in the fourth semester of the associate degree or certificate programs, provide excellent transition from classroom to workplace.
