Cost of Attendance

Estimated Student Budget

The following budgets are based on full-time enrollment for Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring terms. Your cost of attendance is based on average costs and includes:

  • Tuition and Fees: Set annually by CGCC’s Board of Education
  • Books and Supplies: An estimate of average costs for the award year (summer - spring)
  • Room and Board: An estimate of average costs based on double occupancy and off-campus housing. Students living at home will have this amount pro-rated.
  • Transportation and Personal: An estimate of possible expenses for personal items, clothing, recreation and travel
