Admissions & Records PhotosFee Payment Process and Drop
for Non Payment Schedule

Prior to the start of the term
Pay your fees immediately so that you do not get dropped from your classes! Fees are due IMMEDIATELY and must be received by the fee payment deadlines printed in this schedule. Golden West College does not bill for unpaid registrations. If payments are not received in accordance with the drop schedule, students WILL BE DROPPED from classes to make seats available for other students seeking to register. Waitlisted classes WILL be dropped as well if the balance is not paid in full for classes in which a student is officially enrolled and fees charged.

Important: Students who are still enrolled in classes when 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. It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from classes by the refund deadline to ensure cancellation of fees. Unpaid balances could be forwarded to a Collection agency which may incur an additional cost.

Late Registration - Once the term has started
Students who register for classes after the term begins 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. This hold will block future registration (adds, drops), obtaining transcripts, grades, diplomas, or verification of enrollment until all fees are paid. Unpaid balances could be forwarded to a Collection agency which may incur an additional cost.

Financial Aid Students
BOG Fee Waivers pay enrollment fees ONLY. If your BOG Fee Waiver (BOGW) has been applied to your registration account, you must pay the required health fee, College Service Charge and materials fees or you will be dropped from your classes if enrolled prior to the start of the semester. You may verify that your BOGW has been posted to your registration account by logging in to your MyGWC and checking your account balance. NOTE: If your BOGW has not been posted to your account, please pay the total balance due to avoid being dropped.

IMPORTANT: 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 avoid fee obligations and MUST print a student class program (available via MyGWC) to verify their withdrawal. (Once classes begin, non-attendance or non-payment does not release the student from hi/her responsibility and may result in failing grades being awarded)

Non-Payment Drop Schedule
Students, who have not paid their account balance in full, may be dropped for non-payment of fees in accordance with the following schedule. Waitlisted classes may be dropped as well if the balance is not paid in full for classes in which a student is officially enrolled and fees charged.
