How to Get a Refund

Refunds for Enrollment and Tuition Fees

Follow these steps to get a refund for enrollment and tuition fees:

  1. Drop your class(es) by the deadline. After your class is dropped, money is credited to your eServices account. Keep all documentation that shows the date your class was officially dropped.
  2. Request a refund in eServices to get the money out of your eServices account by the deadline.

Refunds for Health Services Fee

Follow these steps to get a refund for the health services fee:

  1. Drop all of your class(es) by the deadline. After your class is dropped, money is credited to your eServices account. Keep all documentation that shows the date your class was officially dropped.
  2. Request a refund in eServices to get the money out of your eServices account by the deadline.

Students who depend exclusively upon prayer for healing in accordance with the teachings of a bona fide religious sect, denomination, or organization – or students who receive the California College Promise Grant Part A – can refuse to pay this fee. To be exempted from paying the fee, submit the Health Services Fee Exemption Form before the last day of the semester.

Refunds for Semester Parking Permits

As we expand in-person offerings, we recognize the need to reduce the barriers for students to access college facilities (including in-person classes and student support services). Therefore, we are not selling parking permits for the spring 2022, summer 2022, or fall 2022 semesters.

Refunds for Student Representation Fee

Follow these steps to get a refund for the student representation fee:

  1. Drop all of your class(es) by the deadline. After your class is dropped, money is credited to your eServices account. Keep all documentation that shows the date your class was officially dropped.
  2. Request a refund in eServices to get the money out of your eServices account by the deadline.

Students can refuse to pay this fee based on moral, religious, political, or financial grounds. To be exempted from paying the fee, submit the Student Representation Fee Exemption Form before the last day of the semester (but preferably before you pay your fees).

Refunds for UTP Fee

Beginning in spring 2022 – with the introduction of the digital UTP/ZipPass – students who drop all units by the deadline are eligible to receive a full UTP refund. Students who request a physical version of the spring 2022 UTP are not eligible for a UTP refund.

Follow these steps to get a refund for the UTP fee:

  1. Drop your class(es) by the deadline. After your class is dropped, money is credited to your eServices account. Keep all documentation that shows the date your class was officially dropped.
  2. Request a refund to get the money out of your eServices account by the deadline. You can submit this request online.

Important Information About Refunds

Credit Balances in eServices

Money in your eServices account is not automatically refunded to you. If you have a credit balance in your eServices account and you do not request a refund by the last day of instruction of the semester, then you forfeit that money.

Exceptions for Military Students

If you have to withdraw from classes for military purposes, then you will be refunded 100% of your fees and tuition. This is true even if you drop after the deadline or request your refund after the end of the semester.

How long will it take to get my refund?

Refunds are issued within six to eight weeks. If you paid by credit card, then a refund will be issued to the credit card you paid with. All other methods of payment will be refunded by check and mailed to the address on file with Admissions and Records.
