Aid and Payment Deadlines

Tuition & Fees

Enrollment fees are set by the state at $46 per unit. If these fees are changed by the state, students will be notified of the additional amount owed via their college email address.

  • See the payment chart for tuition deadlines. Students are allowed 3 calendar days (including weekends and holidays) from the date of registration to submit full payment for all sessions. If payment is not received within 3 calendar days, students will be dropped for non-payment. Partial payments are not accepted.
  • After registering for a class, you have three days to pay your fees for all sessions. This deadline does not apply to students who have been awarded Pell Grants, Cal Grants, or California Promise Grants by the Financial Aid Office.
