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

2.81 Average Rating
Of course, junior colleges are cheaper than 4-year colleges. But, not only is the tuition cheaper, so are things like parking passes and there are also many different ways to go about buying books for cheap.
Katlyn from Livermore, CA
you will definitely be happy at this college at only $36 a unit.
Amy from Pleasanton, CA
You'll get a top-notch education for community college prices. Two of my professors also teach at the CSU and UC levels, and teach just a couple classes here. I suppose that's a reflection of the poor economy, but I'll take the benefit!
