Unless you are receiving Financial Aid, payment for tuition and student fees is due prior to the start of classes. For a class that has already started, payment is due immediately upon registration. Failure to pay may result in a delinquent account. If your account is delinquent you may not add more courses or drop existing courses.
If you are receiving Financial Aid, your fees will be charged to your account and then automatically paid for by your Financial Aid after the 3rd week of the term.
You are responsible for any fees not covered by your Financial Aid or 3rd Party Voucher.

As a California Community College, Cabrillo does not control fee amounts; they are subject to change at any time. The State supports students by keeping enrollment fees as low as possible. However, these fees may go up during the semester and you may be charged retroactively.
