Payment Information

Deadlines and Payment Options

Payment Deadline/Policy

Payment is due after registration.

If you are awarded a tuition waiver (California College Promise Grant or Two Years Free), or if you are a contract education student, tuition fees may be covered. You will continue to see a balance until the add/drop deadline of the semester. If you remain eligible, your tuition will be waived at that time. You do not need to pay for tuition at this time and your classes will not be dropped. You may be responsible for other fees beyond tuition, which can be paid now by faxing/mailing in a payment form or online after the add/drop deadline when tuition fees are waived. Please check your Financial Aid and Two Years Free status in mySierra.

Payment Policy for International Students

International students must pay all tuition and fees in full at the time of registration. Payments can be made with a check, a money order from a U.S. bank, or a credit card (Visa or Mastercard) through mySierra.

If you’re using Financial Aid to pay for your classes, the Financial Aid Office must receive and process your FAFSA and all of your forms before you can register for classes.

California College Promise Grant (formerly BOG)

California residents with a California College Promise Grant will have their tuition waived. Check your financial aid status in mySierra to confirm your California College Promise Grant award.

If you are receiving a scholarship, you should verify your award with the Financial Aid Office before you register for classes.

The Nelnet Tuition Plan allows you to divide your tuition costs into monthly payments. Nelnet is not a loan program, has no interest, and does not require a credit check. You can set up automatic payments from a checking or savings account, or your credit card. The cost to participate is $20 per semester.

To manage your payment plan, go to mySierra, click "Pay for Classes/1098-T Tax Forms", then select "Setup/Manage Payment Plan."

If you are a new student applying for Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab) or Chapter 33 (Post 9-11), you need to complete the intake process with the Sierra College Veterans Success Center before registering for classes.

Payment by Agency or Company (i.e. Workers’ Comp., Voc. Rehab., Active Military, Ghidotti or Employer)

The Bursar’s Office must receive and process your authorization letter at least two weeks before you register for classes. If processing is not complete, pay for your tuition and you will receive a refund once your contract is processed.
