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.

Great school!
Sheyla
You save a lot of money because the government pays for your classes and with your FASFA all you need to buy are your books. Put the money aside for when you transfer is the best advice I can give.
Michelle from Los Angeles, CA
Tuition is pretty cheap. I don't pay for my tuition because our school has a fee waver. Most of the students that I know have applied for the fee waver and have qualified.
Genesis from Los Angeles, CA
This place is very considerably cheap compared to ANY other community college. The best part is that if you're enrolled in ELAC, you are also enrolled in other 8 community colleges within the Los Angeles District. This gives you priority for registering for classes within the district. They even have a fee waiver for those who can't pay for college.
Eva from Los Angeles, CA
ELAC is a small school, but there are many classes to attend and a lot of extracurricular activities. Simply apply for a fee waiver, but even the normal price is nothing compared to what you can experience at such a school. Definitely bang for the buck.
Eric from West Covina, CA
Although, fees have gone up the quality of the education is amazing. Many of the professors are young and energetic, while others have a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to share with the students, making well-rounded people out of all the students.
