Compare the Cost

Everyone deserves quality education at an affordable price to get the goal at the end...a degree. That is what Sauk wants to make sure students can accomplish. Students attending a four year institution and students attending SVCC for two years followed by a university or college will both earn the same degree, the only difference is the price of getting that same degree.
