Tuition and Fees
The nine month program consists of two semesters of 18 units each (36 total for the year).
All students pay enrollment fees (per unit), a health fee, a student representation fee, and a student center fee. Out-of-state/non-resident/international students pay non-resident tuition fees in addition to enrollment fees. If you have any questions about the total cost, please visit the Mendocino College fees page to ascertain the current fees: https://www.mendocino.edu/admissions/registration/fees
In order to claim California residency for tuition purposes you will need to provide proof that you have resided in the state for at least one year prior to attending. For information regarding this please visit the https://www.mendocino.edu/admissions.

There are also scholarships available from the Mendocino Foundation, but for various reasons, their application deadline (early March) occurs before you would even apply to our program. In order to be eligible for those funds, you would need to apply early to become a student of Mendocino College, which is separate from applying to our program. Go here to do this: https://www.mendocino.edu/admissions This will allow you to apply for scholarships for the upcoming Fall semester. Go here for more information https://www.mendocino.edu/student-services/financial-aid/scholarships or https://mendocinocollege.awardspring.com/ to apply. If you are then awarded a scholarship, but do not make it into our program, the money will be passed on to other students.
