Value and Affordability
The Best Value in Higher Education
With the cost of college sky-rocketing around the nation and student debt piling up, there has never been a better time to pursue your academic dreams at Cosumnes River College (CRC). CRC is an affordable way to earn a degree or certificate, or save money before transferring to a four-year university.
The vast majority of our students qualify for free tuition through the Los Rios Promise, which combines local and state money to eliminate financial barriers for students. Many students qualify for additional financial supports – such as federal financial aid, scholarships, or even emergency funds when life throws a curve ball.
Cosumnes River College features new and renovated modern facilities to provide a better learning environment for our students. Learn more about the affordability of CRC, and start working towards your degree, certificate, or transfer today!
Cost of Attendance
The cost of attendance (COA) is the average amount a full-time student can expect to spend over a nine-month period. COA considers the total cost of fees, books, supplies, housing, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses.
Grants – including the California College Promise Grant (which covers enrollment fees) – are a great type of financial aid because you don’t typically have to pay them back.
