In Person Payment at the Business Office

Text about how a student can make a payment at the Business Office, such as types of payment accepted (Credit/debit card – Visa, MasterCard or Discover, Cash, check or money order.)

Returned Checks

Sometimes oversights occur and a bank will return a check as non-sufficient funds (NSF) for payment. As a rule, the SJC bank processes NSF checks twice for payment to the student’s account. The Business Office will mail a certified letter to the student’s current address notifying the student of the NSF check and fees with the conditions for repayment. Some of the conditions include: repayment by cash, money order or credit card (unless the NSF check was for cash). In addition, the student may be dropped from classes and denied College privileges and services. A $35 fee is assessed on all returned checks.

Tuition Refund Policy

Refunds for tuition and fees depend on the start date, length of the course and the date the student dropped the course.

  • Student accounts are credited at the time the drop occurs.
  • Disbursements of credit balances on student accounts will take place beginning February 8th.
  • Refunds for credit card payments are placed back on the credit card.
  • All other disbursements are mailed to students at their address. Address corrections should be completed through Enrollment Services and Records office.
  • Dropping courses after January 14 may result in refunds of less than 100% of tuition and fees (see table below.) Students are responsible for any and all charges incurred on their student account if refund of tuition and fees is less than 100%.
