  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
CSUCI is a great University because the staff and faculty try to get to know their students. Classrooms are very small and you are able to get a lot of one-on-one time with your professors. CSUCI is also very known for its beautiful campus, it is surrounded by mountains and very close to the beach.
Helen from Hawthorne, CA
CSUCI has a great student teacher ratio that should encourage any incoming freshman to consider CI. You get the attention you most definitely want when you are put in a new environment--especially if you're living far from home. It gives you a great sense of stability and comfort knowing that the faculty and staff are really here for you to help you in any way possible.
