Refund of Fees

Please refer to the semester calendar for refund dates. All requests for refunds must be submitted in writing to Admissions & Records by the appropriate deadlines. Please contact A & R for additional information.

Short-term credit classes are those that generally begin after the official start of the regular semester. A refund for eligible fees for a credit or course will be granted, minus a $10 processing fee when a student officially drops the class. The student must submit the completed refund request form in the Office of Admissions and Records on or before 10% of the class has elapsed. 

Students must request, in writing, a refund for a canceled class anytime during the semester in which the class was canceled. Monetary credit WILL NOT be transferred to the next semester. There is no processing fee for canceled classes.

The refund process usually begins the week following the refund deadline and takes approximately six to eight weeks to complete. All refunds are mailed to the student. No refunds of any type will be processed or granted until all other financial obligations to the District have been satisfied.

The following Admissions & Records services may require a fee:
  • Transcripts
  • General Education Certification or the CSU and Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC)
  • Verification of Enrollment
  • Miscellaneous Documents (Copies of miscellaneous documents (except transcripts from other colleges) contained in student files are available upon written request at a fee of $1 per page. This fee does not apply to San José City College records, for which there is a separate charge.)
