The California Community College athletic system is governed by the Commission on Athletics (COA), which was originally established in 1929 as the California Junior College Federation, governs the California Community College athletic system. The organization united all California Junior Colleges under one single administrative governing entity responsible for statewide rules and policies for the intercollegiate athletic programs.
The cost to attend a California Community College is one of the most reasonably priced educational opportunities with an enrollment fee of $20 per unit. On average, students will enroll in 15 units per semester. With the reasonable cost and the need to provide educational opportunities to all of our students in California, there are no athletic scholarships available.
