Fees - Fall & Spring Terms

Fees are set by the California legislature and are subject to change, even if you have already paid us. California is one of the few states of the union that continues to provide widespread access to college-level education by keeping fees low. You can participate in this and other legislative decisions that affect you by registering to vote.

Fees are due 5 days after registering for any class. Failure to pay may result in a delinquent account. If your account is delinquent you may not add more courses, drop existing courses or request transcripts. Click on Payment Options for information about paying your fees.

California residents pay an enrollment fee of $46 per unit.

Cabrillo students recently held an election and voted to impose a mandatory transportation fee of $40 per student per semester. The fee provides each student with a bus pass valid seven days a week, providing Santa Cruz Metro bus service throughout Santa Cruz County with transfers to Monterey-Salinas Transit. Students will simply show their Cabrillo ID card with a current semester sticker to ride the bus. Stickers will be available late August in the Welcome Center (SAC East.)
