Tuition

Admission is limited to transfer-ready candidates who possess a prior A.A. degree or 45-60 semester units (67-90 quarter units) of transferable lower division academic coursework.

Tuition and graduation fees for second year (for any two-year programs) will be based upon the prevailing tuition rate at time of acceptance and completion of second year enrollment forms. A change in major will result in a change in cost.
