PAYMENT OF FEES / STUDENT FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS
Once you register for classes, you are obligated to pay your fees. A statement showing your charges and balance due will be placed on your student portal, the College will not send a bill by mail. Students with any outstanding financial obligations to the college (e.g., library fines, laboratory fees, financial aid overpayment, returned check, registrations fees, emergency loans, etc.) will have student privileges withheld, including, but not limited to, notification of grades, sending of transcripts, and right to register. Pay your fees/financial obligations at the cashier’s window or online via ACCESSRIO.
All account balances not paid in full when due are the sole responsibility of the student. The District expects to recover 100% of the debt amount and the student is responsible for all costs incurred by the District to collect such debt. These include and not limited to late fees, collection costs charged by the collection agencies usually 25% to 33% of debt, the California Community College’s Chancellor’s Office Tax-Offset Program 25% of the debt, litigation/attorney’s fees, court costs and interest. Our Accounting staff is available to discuss your financial difficulties and recommended a payment plan to avoid incurring additional fees.

Prior to the start of each semester, there will be Common Drop Dates and students registered for classes with outstanding fees will be dropped for non-payment (this includes any added, waitlisted and registered classes) and their seat will be sent to waitlisted students.
