Community College Fees Go Up

Sponsored by:

It´s going to cost more to attend Columbia College this fall.

With the governor´s signature on Assembly Bill 1754, the enrollment fee for the California Community Colleges has been increased to $18 per unit — up from $11 per unit.

The fee increase, which includes Columbia College, is effective for the fall 2003 semester. Since registration for classes began on July 24, students have been provided with written notice of the pending fee increase and their responsibility for further payment in the printed and online class schedules. In addition, college admissions and records staff members have been notifying registering students of the increase.

Changes were made Tuesday to the college´s student fee system to reflect the increase. Those, who registered for the fall semester before the budget was finalized, will be billed for the balance due caused by the fee increase.

Any questions regarding the increase should be directed to the college business office at 588-5113.

The college´s fall semester starts on September 2. Students can register for classes online at by touchtone phone at 536-5400, or in person at the admissions and records office. Call 588-5231 or 5233 for registration information.
