Cost Of Attendance

Your college costs include more than tuition and enrollment fees. The financial aid office, using information from your financial aid application and admission information, determines the estimated cost of attending any of the LACCD colleges for one academic year. The cost of attendance includes the following categories:

Direct Educational Costs (paid directly to the college)
  • Enrollment and other mandatory fees

  • Tuition

  • Books and supplies*

Indirect Living Costs (NOT paid directly to the college)
  • Living expenses (food and housing)

  • Transportation costs

  • Miscellaneous or personal expense allowances

*Books and supplies costs will vary depending on course, new, used, rental and e-books

The financial aid office calculates the student's unmet need/cost, or how much need-based aid can be awarded, by subtracting the EFC* from the cost of attendance. As different resources of financial aid are awarded, the unmet need decreases:

Cost Of Attendance - (EFC** + Financial Aid Awarded) = Unmet Financial Need


The goal of the financial aid office is to provide students with financial aid resources to minimize their unmet costs. If you are a financial aid student at LACCD, you may access your SIS Portal to see your cost of attendance, financial aid awards, and your financial aid unmet need. See the charts below to estimate your cost of attendance depending your housing and residency status:
