Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (or budget) is the estimated total amount it may cost to attend college.  It will vary depending on your living situation (whether you live with your parents or off campus) and residency status (California resident or non-resident).  Residency status is determined by Admissions and Records.  Student Financial Services is designed to assist qualified students in obtaining grants, scholarships, and federal work-study funds for educational expenses.  Be prepared by applying for financial assistance early, submitting all required documentation, staying enrolled in classes and meeting our Satisfactory Academic Progress Standard.
