Student Eligibility for Refunds

Refunds are given when students officially drop from a class during the scheduled refund deadline. Please visit the Important Dates webpage for refund deadlines. Failure to attend class does not constitute an official drop.

Refunds of enrollment, non-resident, student center, health services, and material fees are given to the following eligible students providing one of the following has been met:

  • A student’s class has been canceled by the District.
  • A student has officially dropped their class during the first two weeks of the semester if in a full-term class or by the 10 percent date if in a short-term or late-start course.
  • A student who is a member of an active or reserve United States military service has received orders compelling a withdrawal from courses at any time during the semester. (To submit verification for a Military Withdrawal, please email the director of admissions and records at
  • A student has paid tuition prior to receiving a California College Promise Grant (CCPG). 

Note: Parking and identification card fees are nonrefundable.

Processing of Refunds

After a class is dropped during the scheduled refund period and your classes are paid for, you will be refunded by the method you paid.

  • Students who paid by credit or debit card will have the refund credited back to the card that was used for payment.
  • Students who paid by ACH will be refunded by check to the student's mailing address on file with the college.  
  • Refunds are processed weekly throughout the semester; please allow one-to-two weeks for processing. 
  • Students who need to update their address should contact Admissions & Records.

Since class start dates can differ from class-to-class, students should refer to the Important Dates webpage in order to determine the drop date required for 100 percent tuition refund. Students who have not received their refund by the sixth week of classes should call the Student Accounts Office at 760.795.6835.

Students Receiving Financial Aid

Students who receive federal financial aid funds and totally withdraw before the 60 percent date of the term require a refund and repayment calculation to determine funds owed back to the various federal aid programs by both the college and the student. Unofficial withdrawals (grades of all Fs and/or Ws) also require a refund and repayment calculation. Refunds of federal aid programs are made according to a formula established by the US Department of Education. Additional information is available in the Financial Aid Office.

Financial aid refunds are disbursed through BankMobile. If you have questions regarding when your money will be available, please see the Financial Aid webpage under the section called "How Often Disbursements Take Place."
