College Costs

Cost of attendance (COA) refers to the average amount a full-time student can expect to spend while enrolled at Sacramento City College over a nine-month period. The cost will differ depending on a student’s housing status and residency: living independently off or on campus, living at home, being a California resident, or being a legal resident of another state.

For more information about tuition fees and non-resident tuition visit the Fees and Refunds section of the Business Services for Students page.
