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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

You can't beat the price.. You can get all of you prereq's for a transferable BA here and save lots versus a typical 4 year University.
Robert from Roseville, CA
Attending Sierra college is THE smartest financial and educational decision that I have ever made. With classes costing only $26/unit, your tuition is often cheaper than the cost of books! On top of this, units from Sierra College are easily transferred to hundreds of colleges all over California.
Brett from Granite Bay, CA
The costs are all reasonable and you are getting more then you pay for. The time and dedication teachers put into teaching and helping is less than equivalent to the amount you pay. The only downfall is the price of books, but that's the case with any books, anywhere.
