GENERAL INFORMATION

ALL STUDENTS

 

ALL CLASSES:

Students will not be dropped from a class for non-payment after the class starts.

Students registering for a class less than ten days before it starts or registering after it starts are responsible for paying even if they never attend the class.

Students who are not going to attend a class are responsible for dropping it within the refund period. This may require them to drop in person if they have outstanding fees more than ten days old.

LATE START CLASSES:

Students registering for a late start class more than ten days before the class starts must pay within ten days of registering or they will be dropped for non-payment.

 

SPECIAL POPULATION STUDENTS

 

STUDENTS WITH BOARD OF GOVERNORS FEE WAIVER:

Students with an active Board of Governors fee waiver (BOG) who are also confirmed as a California resident by Admissions and Records will not be dropped for non-payment. They are responsible for all fees not covered by the fee waiver and all published deadlines. Fees not covered by the fee waiver are due at the time of registration.

NON-RESIDENT STUDENTS:

Non-resident students with financial aid must pay for any fees not covered by their financial aid within ten days of registering or they will be dropped from all of their classes.

VETERANS:

New veteran students who are using VA Vocational Rehab (Chap. 31) or the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chap.33) must identify themselves to establish their eligibility with the Veterans Office 10 days prior to registration. Continuing students using these benefits will not be dropped, but may owe fees to the college once certification is completed by the Veterans Office and it is determined that not all coursework is eligible for VA reimbursement. The veteran’s representative is available at the Financial Aid Office in the Manzanita building.

AGENCY AND THIRD PARTY SPONSORED STUDENTS:

Students using an agency to pay fees must submit their authorization form to the Business Services Office located in the Sequoia building, room 102, within ten days of registering for classes.
