Current Fees


All students, resident and non-residents must pay an enrollment fee of $46.00 per unit with no maximum amount. If you are a California resident and you need help paying the enrollment fee, you may qualify for the California College Promise Grant (CCPG), formerly known as the Board of Governors Grant Waiver (BOGW). Apply in the Financial Aid Office (SS-210) before enrolling classes.

SBCC does not send bills.  It is the student's responsibility to manage their accounts through the Pipeline student portal.  It is also the student's responsibility to drop their classes by the stated deadlines. Nonpayment of fees may result in having a hold placed on your account which will prevent access to grades, transcripts, diplomas and future registrations.
