Payment Policy

Students should register for classes as soon as possible. Payment in full is required at the time of registration and when adding subsequent classes.

If your cumulative fee balance is $100 or more anytime on the following dates, all your classes will be dropped for nonpayment and released to other students.

Drop for Nonpayment for Winter 2018

  • Wednesday, December 13

Drop for Nonpayment for Spring 2018

If your Financial Aid Funds (grants and loans only, not the Board of Governors fee waiver) have been awarded and approved for Academic Year 2017-2018, you are excluded from the drop for non-payment process.

Online Payment Option

Get Additional Time to Pay Your Fees

Our interest-free installment plan is entirely online now. There's no need to wait in line at the Cashier's Office. If you choose to use the installment plan, you will be charged a $25 nonrefundable service fee and must pay 1/3 of the balance of all fees upfront.

The remaining balance will be divided into two equal payments due during the quarter.

If you are unable to pay in full, please see installment payment plan details.

Responsibility for Dropping Classes

A student is responsible for officially dropping classes in which s/he no longer wishes to be enrolled. Please drop unwanted classes as early as possible before the start of the term in order to release seats for students on the waitlists.

You are responsible for dropping or withdrawing from unwanted classes by the last day to drop for a refund. If you drop out of classes or withdrew after the deadline for the last day to drop for a refund, you are still responsible for all fees, and you may receive an "F" grade that will remain on your student record.

Drops for Absences on the First Class Meeting of the Quarter

Instructors may drop students automatically who do not show up to the first day of the class. If you are unable to attend for a legitimate reason, it is advisable to notify your instructor before the class meets. You can request that your place be held, though it is at the discretion of the instructor.


Refund Deadlines

Refund deadlines vary by class. To view last refund dates or drop deadlines: Login into MyPortal and click "View Your Class Schedule" under the "Registration" tab.

Reminders to Pay Fees

You will be e-mailed a courtesy reminder to pay your fees during the registration period. It is your responsibility to have a valid e-mail address on file to ensure you receive all time-sensitive correspondence from De Anza College. Students without e-mail addresses will receive a paper statement via regular mail.

It is your responsibility to immediately notify the college of fee charges that are incorrect.

Residency Fee Determination

Residency is determined upon completion of an application prior to the start of the term. Submit residency-related documents to Admissions and Records within the first two weeks of the term if your residency status is to apply to that term. If the deadline is not met, the residency change will take effect in the next term in which you enroll.

Holds on Unpaid Accounts

Registration holds will be placed on delinquent accounts during week four of the quarter or week three of summer session. This hold status will prevent you from using any services related to registering, adding or obtaining grades/transcripts/diploma for any class(es).

WARNING! All accounts with an outstanding fee balance at the end of the term, upon due process, will be forwarded to a third-party collection agency. The student is responsible for any fee charged by the collection agency. Collection costs of 30 percent will be charged to the student. Delinquent account information may be reported to national credit reporting agencies by the collection agency.
