Tuition & Fees (2010-11)

Download CCA's current estimated Cost of Attendance (PDF) report (revised annually).

CCA is a private, nonprofit institution that relies on tuition revenue to operate. Consequently, it is essential for students to register and pay tuition on time. A significant portion of CCA's operating budget is allocated to scholarships that assist students' financial needs.

CCA reserves the right to withhold issuing degrees, certificates, transcripts, grade reports, or statements of recommendation to or on behalf of any student whose financial account with the college remains unpaid, in full or in part. Students with delinquent financial accounts are subject to having all registration privileges revoked, and failure to pay tuition and other charges can result in their removal from their registered classes.

Note: students are liable for all costs and legal fees incurred in the collection process of delinquent accounts.
