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

3.01 Average Rating
if you are a person who is on a budget for books, make sure you ask around for cheap books and read the bulletins for books that students are selling.
Karen from Elk Grove, CA
I am currently on the BOG fee waiver, so all I pay for is book and supplies!
Kimberlee from Sacramento, CA
The board of governor's fee waiver helps out a lot to those who qualify ultimately paying around $5.00 to $10.00 for a full time load of units. This helps out a lot and considering the information you soak in from the professors here on campus it is a clearance deal. As I said before many professors here teach at four year institutions so you are essentially receiving the same information as others for a small portion of the cost.
Andrew from Vallejo, CA
This is why I recommend Sac City. It will save you a literal fortune! Plus, if you didn't get in to your dream school (like me), this gives you a few years to try again.
Student from Dixon, CA
Sac City has so many resources like the Bogg waiver fee, low cost parking passes, and help with financial aid that makes it extremely affordable to attend
Camille from Sacramento, CA
this campus teaches you the necessary skills to succeed in life.
Samounn from Sacramento, CA
Call us leeches, an abomination to society, drop-outs, etc - but some of us really do want to be in College and can't pay for the outrageous university prices. Thanks to the state, I am getting a good education at a tuition price I can afford. So chill out, nay-sayers. If you want productive adults contributing to your tax dollars later in life, you'll let me get my education.
Monica from Sacramento, CA
You will always get a cheaper education at a community college and Sacramento City makes sure that you are not shorted on your education.
Adria from Browns Valley, CA
I only gave a lower review for price because I am an international student and pay more then a normal student overall. The regular student price is very reasonable though. Plus a light rail pass for the semester is included in the price, and the majority of student are very pleased about this.
