Payment Options

Fees are due when you register. There is a 10-day grace period after registration before students who have not paid will be dropped from their classes. Students signing up less than 10 days before the semester begins will need to have their accounts paid in full before the first day of the new term.

If fees are owed by the student after the term begins a hold will be placed on their records and their account will be subject to collection.

Students are responsible for:

  • Full payment of all charges at the time of registration.
  • Keeping Sierra College informed of any address changes.
  • Adhering to all deadlines.

Whether or not you attend the course, you are liable for payment of the charges for all courses for which you register, To have the charges removed, you must personally drop the course by the Add/Drop/Refund Deadline. See Dropping from Courses.

Payments can be mailed to:
