Tuition and Fees

Regular Summer Session tuition for all students (in-state, out-of-state, international) is $281 per credit. Academy students are offered an additional 25% discount on tuition, which reduces the per credit cost to $210.75 (academy students must remain enrolled in the required 2-unit academic success course to receive this discount). 

  • $210.75 per credit x 7 credits = $1,475.25 for Tuition

All Summer Session and Summer Academy students who take classes on-campus over the summer are charged a required $287* campus fee. This fee gives students unlimited access to libraries, computer labs, the fitness center, pool, courts, metro buses, bike shuttles... the whole campus is yours!

  •  $287* Campus Fee + $750 Program Fee + $1,475.25 Tuition = $2,512.25 for Tuition and Fees

Books and supplies vary by what classes you enroll in.  Some art classes and science labs have small 'materials fees'. Some classes have more than 5 credits, such as sciences with required labs. If you take more than 7 credits, your tuition will increase accordingly.
