Fees & Refund Information

Enrollment Fees

All students are required by state regulations to pay an enrollment fee. Details about exemptions, waivers, deferments, and grants related to this fee are available in the Financial Aid Office at the Santa Rosa Campus, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM or by phone at (707) 527-4471.

Non-Resident and International Student Tuition
A California resident is one who has established legal residence for one year and one day prior to the first day of instruction. Students who are residents of other states wishing to change their residency must show intent to remain. Just being present does not prove intent. Reasonable evidence of permanent stay in California determines state residency, such as: local voter registration, employment verification, DMV documentation, state income tax, and other proof of California residency. Non-Resident Students and International Students are required by the state to pay both the non-resident fee and the Capital Outlay fee per unit in addition to the enrollment fee. Please refer to the fees schedule or the Schedule of Classes for current enrollment and tuition fees.

Note: AB540, Exemption from Non-Resident Tuition for certain eligible California high school graduates, became effective January 1, 2002. Please refer to the AB540 California Non-Resident Tuition Exemption for more details.

Health Services Fee

SRJC charges a fee to support the health of the individual students and the college community, through the Student Health Services department. 

This is a District-mandated and State-regulated fee for all students enrolled in credit courses, with waivers for apprenticeship students, students who depend exclusively on prayer for healing, incarcerated students, Student Abroad students, and students enrolled in only contracted or "0" unit courses.

Student Representation Fee 
The Student Representation Fee of $1.00 provides support for student representatives who state positions and viewpoints before city, county, and district governments and before offices and agencies of the state and federal government. Students may refuse to pay the Student Representation Fee for religious, political, financial, or moral reasons by stating so on a Registration Card or by signing a waiver available through the Student Affairs Office if registering on the student portal.

Payment 
You will be informed of your fees during the registration process. To calculate your fees ahead of time, please see Fee Schedule for more details. Payment may be made by mail or in-person. Master or Visa credit cards accepted for Student Portal transactions, as well as in person. Students may utilize their credit card ($5 minimum) for registration payment. A convenience fee of $2 will be charged.

Debts Owed 
Before registering for classes, students must clear any prior semester debts/payments to the College at the Accounting Office in Bailey Hall at the Santa Rosa Campus, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM or the Business Services Offices at the Petaluma Campus, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:45 PM.
