All fees are due within five (5) business days of registration. Payments can be made online through WebAdvisor or in person at the Ukiah Campus, Lakeport Center or North County Center. Students who do not pay fees timely may be dropped, prior to the start of the semester, for non-payment of fees.
Students with approved pending federal financial aid or an approved California College Promise Grant (formerly the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver) will not be dropped for non-payment.
