Refunds & Unpaid Balances

Enrollment fees will automatically be refunded to students who officially drop during the refund/transfer period. Classes dropped or transferred after the refund deadline will not be eligible for a refund. 

A student must officially drop during the refund/transfer period to clear any balance due. A balance due is not cleared by never attending a class for which a student has registered. 

District refunds (enrollment fees, material fees, non-resident tuition, health fees, and overpayment credits) will be paid by check and mailed to the student’s address as shown on the Viking Student System. 

Refunds will be distributed after the 2nd week of the term and again after the 9th week of the Fall and Spring terms. During the Winter and Summer terms, refunds will be distributed after the 2nd week of the term.

Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW) Refunds

Eligible students who pay their enrollment fees, and then become a BOGW student, will receive a refund according to the current deadlines for the semester.

College Service Cared Fee Refunds

Fees will be refunded by the Cashier’s Office within the refund/transfer period as defined in the Viking Student System. To be eligible for a refund, the College Services Card sticker must be surrendered to the Cashier’s Office with proof of complete withdrawal from Long Beach City College. No refund will be granted without appropriate documentation.

Parking Permit Refunds

Parking Permit refund transactions are processed by the Cashier’s Office. To be eligible for a refund, the Parking Permit must be surrendered to the Cashier’s Office within the refund/transfer period as defined in the Viking Student System.

Unpaid Balances

Any balance that remains unpaid past the due date will cause a hold on a student account and prevent further registration and obtaining grades or transcripts. Accounts can be brought into good standing by making a credit card payment via the web or payment in person. Holds will release within 30 minutes after payment. If your hold does not release, please contact the Cashier’s Office for assistance. 

Factors that can affect your refund

Refunds will be reduced by miscellaneous fees such as lab fines, unpaid fee increases, and returned checks. If the amount of unpaid fines and fees exceeds the amount fo a refund, the refund will not be processed until the amount due is cleared.
