Cost of Attendance
A standard student budget is constructed for all financial aid recipients (within
Federal, State, and regional guidelines), which includes the average estimated costs
for attending Napa Valley College. Average costs for various components in the budgets
are developed by the Financial Aid Office in accordance with the information provided
by the California Student Aid Commission Student Expense Budgets and the California
Community Colleges Standard Budget Ranges for the 2023-2024 academic year. The estimated
expenses listed are intended to give you a general idea about the cost of attendance
as a full-time student for a 9 month (fall/spring) budget.
