Every state has its own rules about what makes someone eligible for in-state tuition. Most states require students to have resided in the state for a certain period of time before qualifying. There may be other criteria too, depending on where you live.

Tuition is not the only cost of attending college; room and board, books, transportation and fees are also costs it consider when budgeting for college. Let's take a look at what impacts these costs, and what to expect at CCBBC.
Room and board at CCBBC is $4,320 a year. This includes the cost of living in dorms or other on-campus housing, and a dining plan that allows you to eat in the school dining facilities.
Board costs vary based on on how many meals are included in the plan you choose.
The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The actual cost of books and supplies depends on the courses you take and the materials required. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.
The majority of colleges also have fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
There may be other costs associated with participating in certain activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or playing on an intramural sports team. Most colleges offer resources so that those who may struggle to participate because of cost can find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.
The total cost of transportation in college can really vary. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school? Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus easy to get around on foot? Do you plan to bring a car or are you planning to use public transportation? All of these factors can make a big difference in your transportation budget.
A school's location can impact transportation costs. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in an urban area is usually pricey, but cities may offer more trains, busses or affordable flights to actually get to school. Clear Creek Baptist Bible Collegeis located in a rural setting in KY.
When you're planning for college, be sure to consider personal expenses, like movies, takeouts, furniture or appliances for your dorm or housing, and essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste and toilet paper.

|Most Common Loans for CCBBC Students|
Most students take out institutional or government loans, because they tend to have lower interest rates and more flexible repayment options than private loans. Loans from the federal government can be subsidized or unsubsidized. Subsidized loans do not accrue interest during school, while unsubsidized loans begin accruing interest at the time the loan is issued. If students do no qualify for enough federal loans to cover the cost of tuition, some take out private loans. Parents can also take out ParentPLUS loans, which are government loans for parents who are helping their children pay for college.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) helps colleges determine how much financial need students and their familes have, so they can offer a financial aid package that meets, or come close to meeting, their need.

The net price of college is the actual cost of attending a school for one year. Net cost is calculated by subtracting any scholarships, grants or other aid that does not need to be paid back from the total cost. Student loans are not part of the calculation, because they need to be repaid.
Now that we have a sense of the total estimated costs for CCBBC students, we can subtract the average financial aid package to find the estimated net cost. Net cost can vary depending on a students’ need and the financial aid award received.
When considering whether a school fits your budget, it is important to consider the estimated net cost, not just the sticker price of tuition. Often, schools with the highest tuition also offer the most generous aid packages, so estimate your net cost before eliminating a school because it does fit your budget.
The average amount of financial aid received by a full-time first year student with demonstrated need at CCBBC was $5,811 in 2022. By substracting the average financial aid package from the estimated costs, we get a number that may make the cost of CCBBC seem more manageable.
