When registering for courses you must pay class tuition and fees by the first day of the quarter. Students are encouraged to pay at the time of registration or to enroll in the college’s payment plan. If you enroll in a payment plan you must withdraw by the scheduled refund dates to receive the level of refund outlined in the college’s refund policy. Students who enroll after the first day of the quarter must pay tuition and fees at the time of registration. Students with a balance due for tuition and fees are subject to being dropped from classes. Unpaid balances may be subject to collections and you may be responsible for any collection and legal fees.
