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 American River 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.
|Expense||Living with Parents||Living Off-Campus|
|Enrollment Fees ($46 per unit, full-time)||$1,288||$1,288|
|Books and Supplies||$1,972||$1,972|
|Room and Board||$8,780||$16,580|
|Total||$16,544 per year||$24,902 per year|
