    A majority of our students receive federal and state financial aid. Between financial aid, scholarships, student success programs with financial support, and academic awards for new students, Century College students earn their degrees or take courses while avoiding student load debt.  

    As a two-year public community and technical college, Century College receives funding from the State of Minnesota, keeping tuition rates significantly lower than private colleges and universities.

    With low tuition rates and financial aid options, most students graduate and/or transfer from Century College with little to no debt.
