1. COM covers the enrollment fees, normally $46/unit for current high school students (e.g. does not apply to high school students once they have graduated). High school students can enroll in up to 11 units—a savings of $506 per semester!
2. Students are responsible only for fees, including: mandatory health fee ($20); mandatory transportation fee ($3/unit); cost of books or materials may apply, depending on the classes taken; optional student fees normally charged may be waived with waiver request form.
