Estimated 2 Year Cost at Published Tuition

At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 2 year associate degree at Western Iowa Tech Community College is $27,724 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 2 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you’re in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.

A potentially more accurate but less conservative estimate of a degree cost can be made by using the school’s annual $5,085 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 2 would estimate the cost of a degree at $10,170**

**Based on a 2 year multiple of Average Annual Net Price for in state students receiving grant or scholarship aid reported to the U.S. Department of Education’s 2014-2015 IPEDS Survey.

Student Loans and Debt

Example Loan Payments and Costs

How much are student loan payments for Western Iowa Tech Community College? Obviously this varies based on a number of factors – offsetting financial aid you receive, percentage of fee you pay upfront while enrolled and the interest rate on your loans. We’ve modeled a sample student loan based on current Stafford loan rates to give you an approximate idea.

The following are the costs for a loan if you borrowed $10,170, 100% of the estimated average net price for a two year program and paid nothing while enrolled. The total of all payments including interest would sum $12,618.64. This could be your effective total out of pocket cost of an education at Western Iowa Tech Community College. Note that this calculation assumes you don’t pay full list price tuition, are part of the reported 85% of students at this school who receive financial aid and you are paying an average annual net price of $5,085. If you do not financially qualify for a reduced net price, your student loan payments could be significantly higher than this example.

Affording Student Loan Payments and Post Graduation Salary

Can I afford to attend Western Iowa Tech Community College? In the end, the answer comes down a determination if you will earn enough to comfortably pay back a student loan with your post graduation salary. This is an extremely important point to consider. In order to afford student loan payments and still meet all your other costs of living, it is recommended not to borrow more than you can pay back using 10% of your monthly income earned after graduation. If you’re considering attending Western Iowa Tech Community College, you need to carefully consider if it will be realistic to make the post graduation loan payments based on your expected salary.

Using the 10% of salary threshold, an annual income of $12,618.64 would be needed to afford
a $105.16 monthly payment in the example $10,170.00 loan modeled above.
You will need to determine if it is at all realistic that you will be earning this type of salary after graduation. This assumes a loan payback over 10 years. You can change the terms of this example loan using the student loan calculator below.

Is Online For Me?

With Western Iowa Tech’s online classes, students can choose from hundreds of course offerings. You can earn college credits or even some entire degrees in some cases. All you need is a computer and internet access… just login and follow the instructions. Tech support is available 24/7. Students can ask the instructor questions, take tests, access grades and take part in threaded discussions… all online, anywhere.

How do I know if Online Learning is for Me?

Online courses are a convenient way to pursue your educational goals; however, they are NOT self-paced and have regular deadlines for homework and tests, just as you would in the classroom. You have flexibility in working your homework and "class time" into your busy schedule, but assignments, papers, quizzes, exams and such will need to be done on the class’s schedule so no one falls behind. If you aren’t sure whether online learning is for you, try taking a demo course .

You will potentially have fellow students from all over the country, and they will often have different perspectives on things. Show respect in the online classroom and treat others how you would want to be treated.

Pay close attention to the type of class you sign up for because there are several varieties.

  • Fully-online 16-week courses run the course of the entire semester and are a little more relaxed than an eight-week course.
  • Fully-online 8-week courses compact the entire 16 weeks of material and learning into eight weeks. As you can imagine, this is faster paced and requires more discipline than a 16-week course. The benefit is getting it done quicker so you can take two eight-week classes per semester.
  • Fully-online 12-week courses can now be taken in the fall and spring semesters and are a nice compromise between 16 and 8 weeks.
  • Hybrid courses combine online with classroom experience to make the class a little more flexible, but still give the classroom time some courses may require to be most effective.
