Welcome to El Camino College!

Focus On Your Future!

El Camino College Offers an Excellent Education at the Best Value

It costs California residents only about $1,400 per year to attend El Camino College. We offer the same general education courses as UC and CSU schools – and students save thousands of dollars. In fact, students can earn their bachelor’s degree
with half the amount of student debt just by starting at ECC and then transferring to a four-year college or university.
A full-time student enrolled in 12 units for two semesters pays $1,400 per year in enrollment fees at El Camino College,
in comparison to:

  • $6,760 at a California State University,
  • $14,000 at a University of California institution,
  • or $31,230 at a private college or university.

Financial aid, such as fee waivers, grants, scholarships, work study programs and loans, is available year-round. This money
can be used to help pay for fees, books, supplies, and sometimes even living expenses. Learn more about the different types
of financial aid available and apply for them by visiting
