New in-state tuition at the SNC@TMCC extension center is bringing the total tuition and fees cost down to $237.50 per credit.

Sierra Nevada College Lowers Tuition for Nevada Extension Students

Nevada students looking to finish a 4-year degree just got a windfall in a new in-state tuition reduction. Students attending Sierra Nevada College classes at Truckee Meadows Community College’s Dandini Campus through SNC@TMCC’s extension program will now pay only $225 per credit. The total per-credit cost in tuition and fees for 12 credits at SNC@TMCC with the in-state tuition would be $237.50 per credit, compared to $253 per credit at University of Nevada, Reno.

“This is a significant reduction, in line with our belief that creating many pathways to a college education is good for students and good for Nevada. It’s our civic duty to make education available as many ways as possible,” says Alan Walker, President of Sierra Nevada College.

In addition to the new in-state tuition structure for TMCC students, SNC also offers the significant, donor-funded Achieve Scholarship for its extension center students, and an online Prior Learning Assessment course. The PLA course lasts seven weeks and provides up to 15 college credit to adult learners for life and work experience.

“The partnership with SNC is a benefit to TMCC students,” said TMCC President Karin Hilgersom, “because students can opt to continue their education on the Dandini Campus. The new reduced tuition rate is another way that SNC is providing great value, and really helping students of all ages and backgrounds achieve their goals.”

Degree programs currently available through SNC@TMCC are Entrepreneurship, Business Administration and Psychology. All programs result in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree accredited by the NWCCU. For more information, contact extension@sierranevada.edu.
