Your Guide To Pay For College!
Cost of Attendance
Every aid year, the financial aid office develops a basic budget based on the expenses that all students are expected to have during a year.
This budget is not an amount that the college charges, but an estimate of how much it costs to live for a typical nine-month school year. This estimate is used during the awarding process to determine your unmet financial need; many types of awards use unmet need as a criterion for eligibility or as a factor in determining award amounts.
Note: federal regulations require us to reduce a student’s budget when they enroll in less than six units in a term.
For the 2023-24 aid year, the financial aid office has used state averages provided by the California Student Aid Commission to develop the following nine-month budgets:
|2023-24 Budget Components||Living Off-Campus||Living at Home|
|Books, Supplies, and Equipment||$938||$938|
|Food and Housing||$19,431||$10,125|
