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

2.87 Average Rating
At Rio Hondo the average cost of class in around $36 a unit and almost all classes here at Rio Hondo are transferable to all other schools in CA.
Martin from El Monte, CA
The unit is $46 but it covers for the psychological services and nursing emergencies that you might need. You can also eat for free for four days as A.S.B sponsors their fellow students with pizza, chips and many times candy with a drink. The first time is when the semester is barely starting; the second time is when midterms are coming up and the last, is when finals are coming up. It�s a nice relaxing way of thinking that at least you don�t have to worry about buying food for three days on exam seasons and you mingle to relieve a little stress before going back to study. Also, you can take advantage of the Eureka, which fits your skills with careers and steps to get your dream job, free! All of these services are paid when you pay your tuition.
