For any student who, at the time of registration, is a recipient of (1) TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families); (2) SSI/SSP (Supplementary Security Income/State Supplementary Program); (3) General Assistance/General Relief Program; or (4) The California Department of Veteran Affairs or the National Guard Adjutant General’s Certification of Eligibility for a dependent’s fee waiver.

Prior to registration, students in any of these categories should obtain the appropriate application materials from the Financial Aid Office for exemptions.

Nonresident Tuition/foreign Student Tuition Fee

Students who have not established California residency in accordance with state regulations (see Residency Requirements section), will be required to pay the Nonresident Tuition Fee of $265.00 per unit. Students who are both citizens and residents of a foreign country are required to pay $265.00 per unit. These fees are in addition to the enrollment fees.

Student Services Health Fee

All students are required to pay a Student Services Health Fee each semester and summer session.  Dual enrollment/high school students are exempt from this fee.

Fees for Parking Decals

All vehicles that park within the Yuba Community College District will need a parking decal. The cost is $40 per semester; $20 for summer session. As an option, students and part-time staff may purchase a $2 daily parking pass in lieu of a semester decal. Those who have a Motorcycle can purchase a $15 per semester decal. The Parking Fee covers day and evening campus attendance.

The $40 decal is nonrefundable after the fourteenth calendar day of the full-semester. The $20 decal is nonrefundable after the first ten percent of classes for short-term classes. The $2 decals are nonrefundable.

Other Fees (Books, Program-specific Expenses, Transportation, Living Expenses)

All students should be prepared to purchase their own books and parking decals.  Books are sold at the campus bookstore or online bookstore. Parking decals are sold through WebAdvisor.  Direct school expenses for the entire year, including books, will average $600 to $700 for students living at home; book costs for pre-professional students (such as medicine) will run somewhat higher.

Students in some health-care courses and programs (such as EMT, Nursing, Nursing Assistant, Radiologic Technology, and Public Safety) are required to purchase drug testing and other related charges.  These must be paid for at the time of enrollment. The California College Promise Grant (CCPG) formerly known as the BOG Fee Waiver does not cover these charges.
