Dropping After the Drop Deadline
A student must have documented circumstances beyond his/her control to initiate a drop after the published deadline. Examples of circumstances beyond the control of the student may include, but are not limited to, the following: accident, ill- ness, change in work schedule or other document- ed circumstances. Students should submit their request for Waiver of Time Limit for Permissible Withdrawal to the Manager of Admissions and
As a publicly supported community college, Barstow provides low-cost education; students pay nominal fees at registration. In order that stu- dents not be denied access to a college education, the College offers financial aid to assist with financial obligations.
All students must pay enrollment fees of $18 per unit. Non-resident students also pay non-resident tuition of $149 per unit. Eligible students may qualify for a waiver of their enrollment fees (see page 25). Nevada residents may qualify for reduced tuition of $42 per unit under the Good Neighbor agreement, the application for which is available from the Admissions & Records Office. See the current Schedule of Classes for all other fees.
Fees are assessed each term and are to be paid in the Admissions and Records office on main cam- pus or at the Ft. Irwin or Miramar centers. All fees are due at the time of registration. These include enrollment fees, ASB fee, materials fee, and if applicable, nonresident fees. Fees may be paid to the Admissions & Records Office via cash, check, money order, VISA or MasterCard. Stopping payment on a check does not constitute a withdrawal from classes and will result in a $10 charge. Failure to attend a class once enrolled
does not absolve students from payment of fees. Students will be held accountable for all fees incurred unless classes are dropped by the speci- fied refund deadline.
All fees are subject to change without notice by action of the California Legislature, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors or the Board of Trustees of the Barstow Community
Refund Policy Students who drop during the first two (2) weeks of the fall or spring semester will be eligible for a refund of enrollment fees. The Student Representation Fee and the ASB Fee are non- refundable. Refer to the current Schedule of Classes or contact the Admissions and Records Office for refund deadlines for short-term, late starting or summer session classes, as deadlines can be as early as the first or second day of class.
It is the student's responsibility to apply for a refund, unless the class was canceled or resched- uled. Petition forms are available from the Admissions and Records Office. The deadline to apply for a refund is one year from the end of the semester in which fees were paid.
For students who are active or reserve U.S. mili- tary personnel and receive orders compelling withdrawal from courses, Barstow College shall, upon receipt of student orders and petition from the student, refund enrollment fees unless a credit has already been granted.
Nonresident students who withdraw from the College up through the first day of classes in any term shall receive a full refund of tuition. Nonresident students who withdraw from the College up through the Friday before first census (the end of the third week for semester-length classes) shall receive a refund of 80% of their tuition. Nonresident students who withdraw on the first day of a short-term class will receive a full tuition refund. Nonresident students who withdraw from a short-term class within 19% of the days the class is offered will receive an 80% tuition refund. There will be no other refund of nonresident tuition.
