Tuition Cost Comparison

As a college, YVC provides an excellent education at a fraction of the cost of attending a 4-year public university or private college. YVC students enjoy the benefits of engaging and highly qualified faculty instructors, smaller class sizes, more individualized instruction, and of course, lower tuition and fees.

Don’t just take our word for it, compare YVC to other colleges and universities and see for yourself.
