A payment for your classes is due when you register. If you do not pay at this time, your classes may be automatically dropped after 10 days (including holidays and weekends) unless you:
- Are a First Year Free Student
- Have qualified for the California College Promise Grant (formerly BOG)
- Have contacted Admissions & Records to claim a financial hardship
- Are a Veteran (continuing student) certified under Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab) or Chapter 33 (Post 9-11)
If you do not pay for your classes by the first day of the semester, a hold will be placed on your account.
If you do not plan on attending a class you should drop it as soon as possible. If you do not drop classes by the add/drop/refund deadline (found on your class schedule in mySierra), you will be responsible for paying your tuition and fees, even if you do not attend.
