Drop For Non-Payment of Class Fees

Students are responsible for any fees incurred and grades received. It is your responsibility to drop their classes.

You will be dropped from ALL your courses (including waitlisted courses) if you have not paid your fees and are not exempt before each semester drop date. You will need to pay your course fees before the drop deadline.

Pay your fees via My Mission Portal.


Emergency Assistance funding is available, please indicate Fall classes in the application.

Financial Aid

Students who sign up for Financial Aid and receive a notification, will not be dropped.

Steps for Financial Aid


  • Financial aid takes on different forms from Grants, Work Study, Loans and Scholarships. Financial Aid applications can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks to 4-6 weeks, depending on what is submitted. This page describes the process.

  • By applying for financial aid you may be eligible to receive assistance with paying for your classes, along with other educational expenses. Find out more regarding financial aid and apply today!
  • Applying for Financial Aid does not mean you qualify for or will receive financial aid.
Financial Aid Notification

Financial Aid Recipients verified to be eligible for Federal or State Grants or Loans WILL NOT be dropped for non-payment.

Students verified to be Financial Aid eligible will receive an email indicated 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 My Mission Portal 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.

Other Items to Be Aware Of

Decide to Not Take a Class?

Oh no! We wish you could stay with us and take a class, but we understand circumstances change. If you need to drop a class prior to the start of the semester, do so by logging in My Mission Portal. Not doing so could lead to a hold on your account and/or collections.

Students Registering After the Drop Deadline

Students who register after the drop deadline, are enrolled in classes when the term begins, and have not paid their tuition and/or fees, 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.

Students who do not meet these financial obligations in a timely manner will have their outstanding financial obligation (or, their account) sent to collections.

Holds on Your Account

If you continue not to pay your fees, a hold will be placed on your account. You will not be able to add or drop classes. More details on our hold policy. Students who continue not to pay their bills can be sent to collections.
