Tuition and Fees

All students, as a condition for completing registration, are required to pay all fees and charges assessed at registration. Recipients of scholarships or grants, should verify acceptance and the amount with the Financial Aid Office prior to registration. Tuition and fees are assessed to assist in the funding of a student's cost of education. The Board of Trustees establishes the fee rate schedule each year. Tuition and fee information may also be found in the COTO Schedule of Classes and the COTO Student Handbook.
