Estimated Cost of Attendance
Estimate your total costs
The cost of attendance (or budget) is the estimated total amount it may cost to attend college. It will vary depending on your living situation (whether you live with your parents or off campus) and residency status (California resident or non-resident). Residency status is determined by Admissions and Records.
