Pay for College

We know college is a major investment for you and your family. The California Community Colleges is here to help. With the California College Promise Grant (formerly known as the BOG fee waiver) waiving fees for nearly half of students in the California Community Colleges, and with our $46-per-unit fee for community college courses being the lowest in the nation, we are committed to making your higher education goals affordable.

So how much does it cost? If you’re a California resident enrolling in 12 units, you would pay $552 each semester, with out-of-state and international students paying more. Other costs include books, supplies, parking, and fees for things like health services and parking will add to your bill, but waivers, grants and scholarships are available.
