Tuition & Fees

If you have not applied for financial aid, it may not be too late! By applying through the FAFSA or California Dream Act, you may be eligible to receive an enrollment fee waiver. Please visit the SWC Financial Aid website for more information.

Payments in full can be made online on WebAdvisor, on campus, or through U.S. mail. Methods of payment include: Cash, Check, Money Order, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, and ACH.  If you are unable to pay fees today, consider applying for a payment plan (see below).

Third-Party payments are flagged in the system and courses are not subject to drops. If you are unsure of your Third-Party Payment status, please check with the appropriate office (i.e. Financial Aid, Veterans, etc.).

Refund Policy

A student will be refunded registration fees for any program changes (withdrawals) made during the first two weeks of instruction for a primary term (Fall and Spring) course, or by the 10 percent point of actual class meeting days. Please check for dates of specific classes on WebAdvisor. For Short Session classes, this may be the first day of class.

  • Mandatory fees to include health, student center, and material fees are also subject to the above policy.
  • A class added after the refund deadline is not eligible for a refund.

Refunds are Not Automatic!

Eligible students should request a refund through the Cashiers Office by phone (619) 482-6307 or in person in room S102 at the Cesar Chavez Building. You may also download and complete the Refund Request Form (PDF) and submit as stated on the form.  Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for receipt of your refund check.

Accounts of students who officially withdraw from class by the refund deadline will be credited (pursuant to Section 58508 of Subchapter 6 of Chapter9 of Division 6, Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations). It is imperative that a current address be on file in Admissions.
