The cost of the Basic Academy is $3550. The cost for out of state or out of country cadets is approximately $8500.00. We offer an exceptional value to law enforcement cadets as this fee includes college registration, access to the student health center, a USB memory stick containing all P.O.S.T. workbooks, Emergency Vehicle Operations Course, trip to the Simon Wiesenthal Museum in Los Angeles, ammunition, range supplies and equipment, and all uniform gear.
A $400.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a seat in any Academy class. Deposits must be paid in cash, by credit card, or with a money order. Personal checks are not accepted. The entire deposit is applied directly to the fees due leaving a remaining balance.
Students must purchase a uniform and equipment voucher prior to the start of the academy. This voucher is non-refundable after purchase. The Class "A" and "B" uniform is provided by redeeming this voucher at Quinn's Uniforms in Vacaville.
A payment plan for the balance of the tuition is available through the academy. Cadets are responsible for their own transportation and lodging.
Students are required to have access to the internet and an electronic mail account. It is highly recommended that students have their own computer, however, computers with internet access are available on campus.
Financial Aid is available through the College Financial Aid Office. Many cadets are eligible for a Board of Governors' grant, as well as other grants that will fund the entire cost of the program. Student loans are also available through the Financial Aid Office. Are you an active or former member of the military? The Basic Police Academy qualifies for funding from the G.I. Bill.
