**The budgets provided for all categories displayed here except tuition and fees are based on the the California Student Aid Commission SEARS Study Data

**Tuition and fees are based on weighted averages of student credits and expenses from the prior academic year with 23-24 cost per credit

**There was not enough data available to determine averages for on campus certificate programs tuition and fees, so online tuition and fee data was used for all certificate programs
