Refund Policy

The Enrollment Fee is refundable if a class is dropped during the first two weeks of the semester or the first 10% of the class (short term and summer classes). It is the student's responsibility to drop class(es).

The Student Health Fee and Campus Center Fee is refundable if a student withdraws from all classes during the first two weeks of instruction or the first 10% of all classes (short term and summer classes.) 

Students who are awarded California College Promise Grant (CCPG) after they have paid their registration fees will be reimbursed only for the semester in which they are granted the CCPG. The CCPG will not be applied retroactively to prior semesters.

Contact the Admissions and Records Office for the Out-of-State Tuition refund policy. Refunds will be mailed each month. Please keep your address current with the Admissions and Records Office.
