College Services Charge

$6 per semester. This charge underwrites many student services, classes and programs. It is not mandatory; however, Coastline Administration and the Associated Student Government (ASG) expect students to support the college by paying the charge. A portion of each $6 charge goes to instructional grants, student scholarships, student support, and graduation related activities. Information about specific programs funded by this charge and requests for waiver of the charge are available and granted only in the Admissions and Records office during the registration period. Waivers must be secured in advance and submitted at the time of a student's initial enrollment.

Non-Resident Tuition – Effective Summer 2014

$193 per unit + $32 per unit Non-Resident Capital Outlay. Students who are not California residents as defined by the Education Code are required to pay the non-resident tuition and the non-resident capital outlay fees in addition to the fees described above.

Please note: it is the student's responsibility to prove that he/she is a California resident.

Tuition Pay (Installment Plan)

Students interested in making payments for tuition and fees, can visit the Tuition Pay website for information on how to sign up for an installment plan. Students who chose to sign up must do so within 48 hours of registration to avoid being dropped from classes. Tuition Pay requires a down payment plus a $25 non-refundable fee per semester. This service is only available for the fall and spring semesters.

Materials Fee

Students may need to purchase materials for classes, as follows:

  1. Required instructional materials of continuing value outside of the classroom must be paid for by the student. These are tangible materials essential to satisfy course objectives, have value to the student outside the classroom, belong to the student and may be taken home. These materials include, but are not limited to, such items as textbooks, workbooks, syllabi, computer discs, tools, uniforms and canvases. They also include materials, such as clay, that are transformed into materials of lasting value. NOTE: Some classes carry a fee for required instructional materials. These fees are for the types of materials described above. When such fees are indicated, the materials for which the fees are levied are supplied at district costs and are sold as a convenience to students. However, students may choose not to pay the fee indicated and provide the materials themselves. Students are warned that they will not be able to complete the requirements of a course if they do not purchase or provide required instructional materials.
  2. Students are advised to provide certain instructional materials of an optional nature. These are materials that enhance a student's learning experience in the classroom, but are not essential to completion of course objectives.

Higher One Q&A

Important information to help you make informed choices about your financial aid disbursements and refunds.

Do I have to use the Higher One MasterCard debit card in order to receive my financial aid or refund?


No! The Higher One MasterCard Debit Card is used for activating a refund preference for Financial Aid Disbursements and/or if you paid your registration fees by cash, check, or in-person credit card transaction and are eligible for a refund. The MasterCard debit card is one option for receiving your financial aid (grants and loans) or refund. There are other options, which include a direct deposit to your existing checking or savings account or a paper check (mailed to you). If you chose to open a checking account with Higher One (fees may apply- See Fee Schedule), your funds will be direct deposited to your account and you will also be able to use the MasterCard you received as a debit card (fees may apply-transactions processed as a swipe and sign do not have a fee) against that account.

Do I have to activate the Higher One card?


Although you must select a refund option through the Higher One website (by entering the debit card number on the Higher One website) in order to receive a refund, you do not have to opt for the Higher One debit card option. You will be offered the disbursement options listed above during the activation process. Log in to www.MyCoastCollegesCard.com to activate your preferred disbursement method.

What happens if I don't log in to activate the card and select a refund/disbursement preference?


If you do not log in and activate your card, Higher One will mail a paper check to you no sooner than 21 days after your refund is disbursed. Regardless of whether you anticipate receiving a refund or not, it is important to activate your refund preference as soon as you receive your card so that you don't have to wait for your money.

What is the OneAccount? Do I need to have one?


After you activate your card online, you will receive an offer for an optional OneAccount bank account. The OneAccount is a bank account relationship between you and Higher One, and NOT managed or operated by the Coast Community College District. If you choose to open an account, please read the terms, conditions, and applicable fee schedule carefully. You do not need to open a Higher One account to receive your disbursement or refund.

Can I use my Higher One Card at any ATM?


Although the Higher One Debit Card can be used at any ATM fees may apply. (See the Fee Schedule for fee information). A fee free (for Higher One card holders) ATM is available on campus at the Garden Grove Center located at 12901 Euclid St., Garden Grove, CA.

What are the fees associated with the Higher One bank account and MasterCard debit card?


Please visit the Higher One schedule of fees page for specific fee information.

How long will it take to receive my funds once I've activated my MasterCard debit card and selected my preferred refund method?


Once the college has disbursed your financial aid funds (see disbursement dates) or your refund (see refund dates), Higher One will distribute your funds as follows:

  • Higher One bank account/MasterCard debit card–same business day
  • Direct deposit to your own checking or savings account–2-3 business days
  • Paper Check–5-7 days

What if I didn't receive the My Coast Colleges Card?


Your My Coast Colleges Card is mailed to the mailing address on file. If you did not receive your card, please verify and/or update your current mailing address on your MySite or come in person to your college's Admissions and Records office.

Please note that students on an F-1 Student Visa and students with an AB540 residency status will not receive the MasterCard debit card in the mail. They will automatically receive paper checks in the mail (if they paid by check or cash and are eligible for a refund).

What if I lost my card or need a replacement?


If you have not activated your card, please verify your current mailing address on your MySite. New cards will be mailed to your current mailing address on file. If you have already activated your card, you can log into www.MyCoastCollegesCard.com and order a new card. It will be mailed to the address that Higher One has on file.

Where can I check to see if my refund or financial aid disbursement is ready?
