McLennan Community College is dedicated to providing an accessible and affordable college education to all who seek it. The school works hard to keep tuition and fees as low as possible, thanks to funding from the state of Texas and local taxes. In addition, eligible students can receive financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and student employment. The cost of textbooks and course materials can vary from course to course, but the average cost is relatively low.
A student who is a resident of Texas and resides in McLennan County will qualify as a resident in the county. Those who are residents of Texas but do not reside in McLennan County at the time of enrolling in classes will qualify as a resident of another county. This information is based on the average costs of dependent students who enroll in 15 credit hours in both fall and spring. Books and materials are available at the McLennan bookstore, located on the first floor of the Michaelis Academic Center.
Students also have the right to opt out of the McLennan Included program and purchase course materials at any store of their choice. If the books are to be used for the following semester and are in good condition, they may qualify for the bookstore buyback program. In an effort to reduce the cost of course materials, McLennan Community College has implemented the McLennan Included program in many courses.
