The college bill for the 2017-18 year is approximately $71,745. This is the amount due without financial aid. If you have been awarded financial aid, reduce your college bill by the amount of your aid. For example, if you have a grant of $4,000 and a student loan of $2,500, reduce the bill by $6,500; $71,745 less $6,500 = $65,245 which is the amount you owe.

PLEASE NOTE: Bills are emailed out of the Office of Student Accounts after August 1. Additionally, all CMC students are required to carry health care insurance coverage.  You may contact them at 909-621-8232 for more information on your account or visit their website. You can also get payment information at Payment Plan Descriptions.

Students who do not provide insurance information and submit a proof of insurance document will be automatically enrolled in the Claremont College's Student Health Insurance Plan at a cost of $1,890 for the annual coverage.

Remember, financial aid adjustments can be made at any time during the school year. Our Financial Aid staff will always be happy to answer your specific questions throughout the year.
