    Great value in comparison to other California Community Colleges but all California colleges are extremely expensive anyway.

    There is a very wide spectrum of classes offered that are applicable for credit towards other public and private schools. The professors are very well educated and experienced and the advisers and counselors are all very helpful. The cost is very low while the school has options for used books and plenty of financial aid.

    Each unit costs $36. Parking is not free for students and can get expensive. Food is also good but may get expensive as well.
