Student Activity Fee

The Student Activity Fee allows the Los Medanos College Associated Students (student government) to provide scholarships, leadership opportunities, cultural programs and other co-curricular programs for the college. It also funds programs such as the textbook on reserve program that allows students to check out course textbooks for use in the library.  Students may request a refund of the fee by submitting the Student Activity Fee Refund Request Form before the refund deadline.

 

Student Union Fee Information

Based on a student vote in a campus election, a student union fee is now being required of all students (except BOG-A Fee Waiver recipients, with Cal WORKS, TANF, general assistance, and SSI). The fee is $1.00 per unit, to a maximum of $10.00 per academic year. The enrollment fee, the new student union fee must be paid at the time of registration.

Fees should be paid at the time of registration. Los Medanos College does not drop for non-payment of fees. Your registration privileges will be held for the following semester if your current term fees have not been paid. Additionally, transcripts or enrollment verifications for the current will term will be withheld until fees are paid.

 

Once you register, you must verify your fees by selecting Account Summary on the Student Account Information screen. Once you register for a course, you are responsible for the fees.

 

Student Debts to the College

Students are expected to clear their financial debts promptly. Students who owe LMC money for tuition or enrollment fees, overdue library books, returned checks, or other debts will not be allowed to use colleges services (such as registering for classes or obtaining official transcripts) until their debts are paid.

 

If your debt remains unpaid, Los Medanos College may garnish your California state tax return through the state mandated Chancellor's Office Tax Offset Program (COTOP). In this instance a 33 1/3% administrative fee will be added to your delinquent balance. This balance will be forwarded for collection to the State Franchise Tax Board (FTB). In the event you are owed a state tax refund, win a California Lottery prize, or have unclaimed property to be distributed to you by the State of California Controller's Office for the upcoming tax year, California State Government Code sections 12419.2, 12419.7, 12419.10, and 12419.11 authorize the Office of the State Controller and the FTB to collect money owed to individuals and redirect these funds to pay the individual's debt owed to the agencies/colleges.

 

Parking Fees

Parking permits are required during the following hours: 7:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. (Monday-Thursday), and 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Friday. Visit our parking and transportation page for all information about parking and parking fees.

 

Student Fee Refund Policy

Fee refunds for students who withdraw from school or drop classes by the deadline for class add/drop will be automatically calculated at the District Information Technology Center. Refund checks for complete or partial withdrawals from school will be processed after the first two weeks of instruction. Refund checks will be mailed to the student address on file in the college Admissions Office. If you have a new address, please notify the Admissions Office at the time of withdrawal or change of program.

 

Refund checks will be issued monthly after the first two weeks of instruction each semester. All refund checks will be made payable to the student whether paid by cash, check, money order, cashier’s check or credit card. No refund of the enrollment fee will be made to any student who withdraws from classes after the first two weeks of instruction for a full semester class, or after 10% of the class time for a short-term class. A refund will not be made if the student has other outstanding debts to the college.

 

Students who register early for the fall or spring semester and subsequently drop all classes prior to the beginning of the semester may petition for an early refund at the Cashier's Office.

 

The above policy also applies to the refund of nonresident tuition fees.

 

Financial Aid Enrollment Fee Refunds

If subsequent to paying enrollment fees, a student becomes eligible for financial aid and receives an enrollment fee waiver, the student will automatically be mailed a full refund check according to the same refund processing cycle as enrollment fee refunds. Students who qualify for the Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver are exempt from parking fees over $20.00 per semester.

 

 

Enrollment Fee Deferments

If subsequent to paying enrollment fees, a student becomes eligible for an enrollment fee deferment to an outside agency, the student should have the document stating the deferment submitted to the Cashier's Office. The student will then automatically be mailed a refund check of the deferred fees according to the same refund processing cycle as enrollment fee refunds. Details regarding the refund policy are available from the Cashier's Office or Admissions & Records Office.
