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

This is the REASON I went to Pierce. With financial aid assistance, I was almost making money off of being there. I was able to save up some money to keep myself comfortable and plan out my UC expenses with the money I was able to save by going to Pierce. Definitely the cheapest education you can get, and with its tremendous transfer rate, you have to wonder why so many people AREN'T going to Pierce.

The hot word of the year appears to be recession, and the word is impacting Los Angeles Pierce College pretty significantly, as unit prices have tripled from $20 each to $60 each. Though this raising of prices is very drastic for some, the overall tuition is still negligible compared to most private, and even most public universities. If you play your cards right, then you will receive a university-level education at a community college price.

You really get your money's worth! If you are purchasing books (new or used), you can always sell them back to the bookstore at Pierce College. If you do not plan to spend that much money, you can rent new or even used books for a fraction of the price! There are available scholarships one can apply to, and financial aid. If accepted, your tuition fees are waived, and you'll even receive extra money to pay for books and materials. With all this help, it's almost impossible not to afford college.
