Refund Information

    • Email

As of January 2014, Sierra College's method to receive refunds is the Wolverine One Card from Higher One®.

This is just an access card, not a debit card unless if you choose it to be. Once activated, you can choose a refund method (including Financial Aid disbursements). You can create a One Account and the WolverineOne card is a debit card, receive a paper check, or have the money direct deposited to your bank (ACH). 

If you don't activate your account, you may have to wait up to 14 days for a default check! So update your address in mySierra and keep an eye out for the green envelope in January 2014.

Course Drops

You are entitled to a refund if you drop a full-term course by the Add/ Drop/ Refund Deadline. The Add/ Drop/ Refund Deadline for full-term courses is typically two weeks following the course start date (see Semester Calendar for the appropriate semester). Short-term and Fast-Track courses each have their own Add/ Drop/ Refund Deadlines. Check with the professor or on your schedule located in your mySierra account.


If you stop attending classes and fail to drop within the Add/ Drop/ Refund Deadline (See Course Drops), you may be responsible for all tuition and fees.

Course Cancellations

If your class is cancelled, you are entitled to a refund. Refunds are automatically issued six to eight weeks after the beginning of the semester.

Other Refund Possibilities

Parking Permit

You are eligible for a refund if you present your parking permit to Campus Security by the add/drop/refund deadline. Note: Parking refunds must be requested separately from enrollment/ health fee refunds. Contact Campus Security at (916) 660-7120 to inquire about refunds for parking permits.

Refunds: Non-Resident Tuition and International Student Tuition

  • 100% refund for full-term courses dropped by the student by the Add/ Drop/ Refund Deadlines. (See Course Drops).
  • 50% refund for full withdrawal if requested by the student within the first six weeks of the semester or the first two weeks of a summer session.

Sierra College Health Fees

You are eligible for a refund only if you drop all courses by the Add/ Drop/ Refund Deadline. (See Course Drops).

All students attending Sierra College pay a Health Fee. The Board of Directors established this fee in 1987. The fee pays for the operation of Health Services. Any enrolled student is welcome to be seen at the clinic. General visits are free, physicals $10, immunization prices vary.

A small fee is charged when any laboratory tests are performed. Some prescriptions are available at Health Services for a reduced cost. The clinics are staffed by Family Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and a Physician, as well as our front office staff.

Student Center Fee

A Sierra College student body election resulted in approval of a mandatory Student Center Fee, designed solely for the purpose of funding a new student center. The fee, charged for the Fall and Spring semesters is $1 per unit to a maximum of $5 per semester.

Required of all students except those:

  • Receiving the BOG A fee waiver.
  • In supportive education.
  • Enrolled in OLLI courses only.
  • Enrolled in in-service courses only.

Questions regarding the student center fee only may be directed to the Campus Life Office at (916) 660-7380.
