    first of all your sentence has a spelling mistake: السعر باهظ جدا بالنسبة إلى طالب
    باهظ is a formal word not used in daily conversations, while غالي is more used in day to day conversations, however it's a correct formal arabic word meaning expensive. By the way all three words mean expensive


    Your sentence is formal.

    The price is too expensive for a student.
    The price = السعر .... as-se3r
    too expensive = غالي جدًا / مكلف / باهظ all are the same and they are all formal. ..... ba-hez / mo-ka-lef / gha-li ge-dan
    for = بالنسبة إلى .... ben-sbah ela
    a student = طالب ta-leb

    If you are still confused, please, feed me back.
