Cost of Attendance

White and yellow flowers

The Cost of Attendance (COA), also referred to as the student budget, is a standard estimated total of a student’s expenses while attending school. Your total financial aid for the award period cannot exceed this amount. The Food & Housing, Transportation, and Personal & Miscellaneous components of the COA are based on the Housing plan for SSU that you reported on the FAFSA. Click the links in the menu at the left to view detailed COA information for available academic years.

Net Price Calculator

The California State University provides a Net Price and Cost Calculator (CSUNPCC) on the CSUMentor web site. You can use the CSUNPCC to estimate your financial aid eligibility information and compare it to the average cost of attending CSU campuses.
