Students should register for classes as soon as possible. Payment in full is required at the time of registration and when adding subsequent classes.

You will be emailed a courtesy reminder to pay your fees during the registration period.

  • It is your responsibility to have a valid email address on file, to ensure you receive all time-sensitive correspondence from De Anza College. Students without email addresses should periodically review their balances due through MyPortal.
  • It is your responsibility to immediately notify the college of fee charges that are incorrect.

If you'd like to pay online

  • You can pay your fees online – through MyPortal – with a VISA, MasterCard, or Discover card.
  • If a parent or someone else will be paying your fees, you can designate them as an “authorized user” for online payments.
  • If you prefer to pay in person, see our Payment Methods webpage.

If you'd like to pay in installments

  • You can set up an interest-free installment plan on MyPortal. You will be excluded from the drop for non-payment process if signed on time.
  • If you pay in installments, you will need to pay one third of your balance up front, along with a $25 nonrefundable service fee.
  • You will be scheduled to make two additional payments, each equivalent to a third of your balance, during the quarter.
  • Visit our Installment Payments webpage for more details.

If you're going to drop a class

  • You are responsible for officially dropping any class in which you no longer wish to be enrolled. Please drop classes as early as possible before the start of the term, so we can release your space to another student who may be on a waiting list.
  • Make sure you know the last day that you can drop a class to qualify for a refund. The Academic Calendar will list the last date to drop for 12-week classes, but the deadline will vary for classes of shorter length. To check the deadline for your class, visit MyPortal and click “View Your Class Schedule” under the Registration tab.
  • If you drop a class or withdraw after the refund deadline for that quarter, you will be responsible for all fees and you may receive an "F" grade on your student record.

If you're absent on the first day of class

  • Instructors may drop students who do not show up for the first day of a class.
  • If you are unable to attend for a legitimate reason, notify your instructor before the class meets. You can request that your place be held, at the instructor’s discretion.
  • Please double check your enrollment status. If you assumed that you got dropped for not showing, you will be responsible for all fees.

If your residency status has changed

  • Your residency status is based on the information you provide when you apply for admission.
  • If you are seeking a change of status, you must submit relevant documents to the Admission and Records office within the first two weeks of a term.
  • If you submit documents after that deadline, any change in status will not take effect until the next term in which you enroll.

Important Information

If you have unpaid fees, you should be aware of the policies listed below. 

Drop for Nonpayment

If your cumulative fee balance is $100 or more on the following dates, you will be dropped from all your classes and they will be released to other students to enroll. Due to this process being so lengthy, If you add a class on a drop for nonpayment date and your balance gets $100 or more, all you classes will get dropped even if you processed a successful payment. Enroll and pay before a drop for nonpayment date.

Drop for Nonpayment Dates

Summer Session, 2018:  Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

Fall Quarter, 2018: Wednesday, August 22, 2018.

If you are receiving financial aid in the form of a grant or loan (not a fee waiver) that's been awarded and approved for the 2017-18 academic year (2018-19 academic year for summer session), you won’t be affected by the “drop for non-payment” process.

Printing Invoices

You may print  a term invoice through MyPortal. Look for My Statements channel located under the Registration tab, right below the Bill Payment channel.

Registration Holds

Registration holds will be placed on delinquent accounts during the sixth week of a quarter, or second week of summer session. A registration hold will prevent you from using any services related to registering or obtaining grades, transcripts or diplomas.

Referral for Collection

Any accounts with an outstanding fee balance at the end of the term may be forwarded to a collection agency after due process. You will be responsible for any additional fee charged by the collection agency; currently the collection agency fee is 30 percent of the outstanding balance. The collection agency may report delinquent account information to national credit reporting agencies.
