Drop for Non-Payment Schedule is subject to change. Please refer to this page for the updates.

Intersession/Spring 2019 

Student Responsibility:

Students are responsible for any fees incurred and grades received. It is the student’s responsibility to drop classes by the State mandated refund deadline to ensure cancellation of fees, to be eligible for a refund and to avoid fee obligations. Students MUST print a student class program (available via MyOCC) to verify all withdrawals.

Prior to the Start of Term:
Fees are due IMMEDIATELY at the time of registration. All fees must be paid including the Health Fee, College Service Charge and any Material Fees by all students, including Financial Aid students. Orange Coast College does not bill for registration fees. If payments are not received by the dates listed below, students may be dropped from classes (including Waitlist classes) to make seats available for other students seeking to register. It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from classes by the refund deadline to ensure cancellation of fees.

Students Owing Less Than $100: Students' who have a balance due of less than $100 will not be dropped from classes, but unpaid balances will result in a hold on your account that prevents obtaining student records, including transcripts, verifications of enrollment, diplomas, etc.


Students Owing $100 or More: Students' who have a balance due of $100 or more will be dropped from classes (including Waitlist classes) if payments are not received by the dates listed below.

Once the Term has Started (Intercession = January 2, 2019; Spring = January 26, 2019)
Students who are enrolled in classes as of the first date of the term or after after the term begins, and have not paid fees, WILL NOT be dropped for non-payment. Students will incur a financial obligation to the college AND a hold will be placed on their record if payment is not received or they do not drop prior to the refund deadline. This hold will block future registration (adds, drops), obtaining transcripts, grades, diplomas, or verification of enrollment until all fees are paid.

Any registration that occurs after 12 noon on January 25, 2019 will not be dropped for non-payment. Students that enroll are responsible for paying their fees or withdrawing from classes prior to the refund deadline to cancel fees.

Financial Aid Recipients that are determined to be eligible for Federal or State Grants or Loans May NOT be dropped for non-payment. Financial aid students not subject to drop for non-payment receive an email indicating they will not be dropped for non-payment.  Those students are responsible for dropping any classes they do not intend to take and verifying the drop by printing the “Student Class Program/Web Schedule bill. Once the financial aid award has been posted to the students account, students with a fee balance will be able to pay the balance through their MyOCC account. Students will be notified after the semester begins if they have a balance due. Note: If you do not receive this email, you are still responsible for paying your fees, or you may be dropped for non-payment.  Applying for Financial Aid does not mean that you qualify for or will receive financial aid.

California College Promise Grant recipients (Formerly Board of Governors Fee Waiver-BOGFW)

Students that receive the California College Promise Grant are responsible for paying the College Service Charge and Student Health Fee, as the Grant only  waives the per unit  enrollment fees.  If you do not pay the College Service Charge (currently $21.00 and the Student Health Fee, currently $20.00) you may be dropped for non-payment   Verify your payment by printing your Student Class Program (web schedule bill)
