Enrollment fees are due at the time of registration. If you need financial assistance, you should apply for Financial Aid as soon as possible. It is the students responsibility to submit all forms and documents to complete their financial aid file in a timely manner for award disbursement. Failure to do so, may result in courses being dropped for non-payment. If you are unable to pay the balance due for your classes by the scheduled drop for non-payment deadlines, students may also sign-up for a payment plan to cover a term balance of $150 or more! Please see the bottom of this page for more information.

Students are responsible for verifying all fee balances and registration prior to the start of the term. To confirm receipt of payment and registration, we highly recommend that students print a Student Class Program (Web Schedule Bill PDF)—located in MyCoast on the Registration tab under Registration Tools. Please make sure to drop any classes that you do not plan to attend and/or pay all fees dues in order to avoid a hold being placed on your record. If you have any questions about your fee balance, please contact (714) 432-5072. Unpaid fees will be forwarded to collection and a $25.00 collection fee will be added to the account.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have updated our Drop for Non-Payment policy beginning with the Intersession/Spring 2022 registration cycle. Click here for details.
