Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

The offer good financial aid. There are programs that can help you pay for school. Tuition right know is like $46 per unit the highest it has ever been.
Marlyn from Royal Oaks, CA
$46 a unit is little to nothing with any sort of financial aid
Gavin from Arcadia, CA
Community college is unbelievably affordable. After looking at many out of state schools and private universities, I am so glad I chose to go to Cabrillo because I can get an excellent education and save so much money so I can transfer to a four year and not be in tons of debt.
