Tuition & Fees

Financial Aid
A variety of scholarships, grants and loans are also available to students.  Information and applications are available from the SBCC Financial Aid Office (2nd floor of the Student Services Building).  Early inquiry is important because of early application deadlines. One source of scholarships for medical imaging students is http://www.healthprofessions.ca.gov

Other required fees include physical exam (SBCC form will be provided), CPR certification (to be kept current throughout the program), uniforms, fees, textbooks, and supplies, as well as professional fees for memberships. You must furnish your own transportation to all clinical education sites.

All students, resident and non-residents must pay an enrollment fee of $46.00 per unit with no maximum amount. If you are a California resident and you need help paying the enrollment fee, you may qualify for the Board of Governors Grant Waiver (BOGW). Apply in the Financial Aid Office (SS-210) before enrolling classes.

SBCC does not send bills.  It is the student's responsibility to manage their accounts through the Pipeline student portal.  It is also the student's responsibility to drop their classes by the stated deadlines.
