Current students, faculty and staff from Consortium member institutions pay a reduced tuition rate of $299/credit. (Because Worcester State University is the CCT program’s credentialing host, current WSU students, faculty and staff pay $265/credit.) Tuition for non-Consortium participants is $479/credit.
