Receipts will be mailed to the student’s address on file. Student ID numbers should be included. Personal checks are not accepted and will be returned.

Failure to Pay fees

Failure to pay college financial obligations will result in a hold on your student account. Consequences of a hold are withholding of diplomas, and/or block of registration privileges.

  • All mandatory fees should be paid at the time of enrollment. Fees not paid, by the beginning of the semester, will result in a delinquent debt to the institution and a restrictive hold to your student account (future enrollment transactions). If you drop a class and have not paid the fees, you are still responsible for the debt on your account.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to drop classes by the published refund deadline dates. Mandatory fees for classes dropped after deadlines will remain on the student’s account - if not paid, and are subject to a restrictive hold being placed on student records.  Add/drop dates can be found on the Admissions and Records page under College Catalog/Class Schedule.
  • The item or items being withheld shall be released when the student pays the financial obligation. (Education Code Section 72237)
