As an out-of-state student, you will be charged non-resident tuition in addition to the enrollment fees. For current fees, please view our fee chart. To calculate your total fees, you may want to consider that a typical full-time student takes 12-15 units per quarter.
Did you know that you may be able to use your prepaid tuition from another state to attend LTCC? This option is available to students who enroll at least 3/4 time (9 units in fall, winter, and spring or 4.5 units in summer) and meet other eligibility criteria. Contact the One Stop Enrollment Services Office for more information.
