Cost of Attendance

How Much Does College Cost?

The cost of attendance (sometimes called 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. Students may not foresee all of the expenses involved in attending college, and exact cost depends on factors such as housing status and residency.

Though students must determine a budget that meets their needs, the following is the annual estimated COA.
