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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

I hope so.
Antonio from Long Beach, CA
We all know that tuition costs have been rising in public schools. Still, earning a degree at Dominguez is worth the money you shell out for tuition and books (hint: get your books online unless absolutely necessary to buy them at the campus bookstore - that place is better for Toro gear), not to mention the great experience that you take from your time here.
Christina from Long Beach, CA
College overall is expensive, but here it is manageable to pay, although some extra help wouldn't hurt.
Gabriela from Wilmington, CA
A bachelor's degree here is cheaper compared to other universities! and there are no problems on campus and the school offers lots of fun activities and even a contest held every tuesday where you could win free tuition for a semester!
Elizabeth from Hawthorne, CA
I believe that even though the tuition is going up for the CSU's, with all of the help that is provided at the school, from free tutoring and a great computer lab, you really get a lot for what you're paying.

Although the tuition price is increasing, it is still a bargin for a masters-level education, which I very much appreciate.

Despite the raise in tuition fee, I feel it's worth paying for when you have a school this nice. Although, it would be nice if I can afford most things I need for each class.
