Admissions & Records PhotosFee Payment Process and Drop
for Non Payment Schedule

Prior to the Start of Term:
Fees are due IMMEDIATELY at the time of registration. All fees must be paid including the Health Fee, College Service Charge and any Material Fees by all students, including Financial Aid students (BOGW). Golden West College does not bill for registration fees. If payments are not received by the fee payment deadlines, students WILL BE DROPPED from classes (including Waitlist classes) to make seats available for other students seeking to register. It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from classes by the refund deadline to ensure cancellation of fees.


Start of Term
Students who are enrolled in classes when the term begins (enrolled after 2:00 p.m. on Friday prior to term start date) and have not paid fees, WILL NOT be dropped for non-payment. Students will incur a financial obligation to the college AND a hold will be placed on their record if payment is not received or they do not drop prior to the refund deadline. This hold will block future registration (adds, drops), obtaining transcripts, grades, diplomas, or verification of enrollment until all fees are paid

Any registration that occurs after 2:00 p.m. on January 30th, will NOT be dropped for non-payment. Students that enroll are responsible for paying their fees or withdrawing from classes prior to the refund deadline to cancel fees.

Note: Not showing up to class for the first class meeting does not equate to withdrawing from a class. If you do not attend a class, or login if it is an online class, you must drop yourself from the class by the refund deadline. Drops are completed online via MyGWC. Please confirm your drop by printing a copy of your Student Class Program (web schedule bill).

IMPORTANT: Students are responsible for any fees incurred and grades received. It is the student’s responsibility to drop classes by the State mandated refund deadline to avoid fee obligations and MUST print a student class program (available via MyGWC) to verify all withdrawals.

Financial Aid recipients eligible for:

BOGW plus State or Federal Grants and/or Loans (PELL Grants) may NOT be dropped for non-payment. Financial aid students not subject to drop for non-payment receive an email indicating they will not be dropped for non-payment. Those students are responsible for dropping any classes you do not intend to take and verifying the drop by printing the “Student Class Program/Web Schedule bill. Once the financial aid has been posted to your account, if you have a fee balance you will be able to pay the balance through your MyGWC account. You will be notified after the semester begins if you have a balance due.

BOGW only Students:  BOG Fee Waivers pay enrollment fees ONLY. If your BOG Fee Waiver (BOGW) has been applied to your registration account, you must pay the required health fee, College Service Charge and materials fees or you will be dropped from your classes, including waitlisted classes, if enrolled prior to the start of the semester. You may verify that your BOGW has been posted to your registration account by logging in to your MyGWC and checking your account balance.
NOTE: If your BOGW has not been posted to your account, please pay the total balance due to avoid being dropped.
