    $48 dollars a unit. You will get more for your money.

    I wish I could say 5 stars because truly this is an incredible way to get higher education done without needing to sell a kidney but the fees per unit keep increasing and it makes it more and more difficult to consider it a great deal even though in the long run it will be vastly less expensive than 4 years at a university. Currently (Spring 2014), unit fees are $47 each which means a normal 3 unit course is $141 for one class and some courses are 5 units. The BOG fee waiver is an excellent thing to look into to help in cutting those fees and it only takes 10 to fill out if that. Plus the cost of books- for 1 semester of 4 classes I paid over $800 in books. I suggest checking online for used books for cheaper prices if possible and using the bookstore as a last resort- you can rent books but some students can't stand it and some love it so be warned. You can also use a book from the library but if someone else has it then you are in danger and used books in the bookstore are still more expensive than you can find online if you really look. Overall though it beats paying thousands of dollars for a 4 year when I can get at least 2 years of schooling done here for a fraction of the cost.
