Ways to Pay for College and Payment Deadlines
Whether paying for college with financial aid, scholarships, work study, or other types of support, know that we are here to help you through the process so you can get to what’s most important: getting in the classroom.https://sierracollege.studentadvisor.ai/virtualadvisor
Tuition and Fees Deadlines
Payment is due in full when you register.
Don't worry though! We allow for a 10-day grace period to make payments in full or set up a payment plan. Not to mention, our staff is here to help you manage the process. Let us know how we can help.
If you do not pay for your classes, a hold will be placed on your account. If you do not plan on attending a class, you should drop it as soon as possible. If you do not drop a class by the the add/drop/refund deadline you will be responsible for paying your tuition and fees, even if you do not attend.
You may qualify for an adjusted pay schedule if you meet any of the requirements below:
How to Pay
You can pay for your classes online, in-person or by mail. We do not have options to accept payments by phone or by email.
Payments in full can be made online with a debit or credit card (Visa and MasterCard only) in mySierra. No partial payments can be accepted online.
Payments can be made in person with card, cash or check at any of the following locations:
- Rocklin’s Cashier’s Office
- Student Services at Nevada County Campus
- Student Services at Tahoe-Truckee campus
- Admissions and Records in the Roseville Center
- By mail or fax – complete payment form
Pay by Mail
Attention: Cashier’s Office
5100 Sierra College Blvd.
Rocklin, CA 95677
or Fax: (916) 630-4536
Payments made by mail can be made with personal checks, traveler’s checks, cashier’s checks and money orders for the amount due only. Make checks payable to Sierra College. Two-party, post-dated, or altered checks will not be accepted. Your account will be charged for any returned checks, whether written by you or another party.
If you’re using Financial Aid to pay for your classes, the Financial Aid Office must receive and process your FAFSA/CADA. This includes all requests for documents.
California College Promise Grant (CCPG)
California residents who submit a FAFSA/CADA are reviewed immediately to determine if they are eligible for a CCPG, which will waive tuition. Check your CCPG award in mySierra.
If you are receiving a scholarship, you can verify your award by checking your financial award within mySierra.
The Nelnet Tuition Plan allows you to divide your tuition costs into monthly payments. Nelnet is not a loan program, has no interest, and does not require a credit check. You can set up automatic payments from a checking or savings account, or your credit card. The cost to participate is a non-refundable $25 per semester.
To manage your payment plan, go to mySierra, click “Payments/Refunds/Tax Forms”, then select “Setup/Manage Payment Plan.”
Payment plans can be set up when you register for classes and only for the current term. The last opportunity to set up a payment plan for the current semester will be within the first month of the semester. The summer term has a much earlier deadline. See Nelnet for details.
Check with the Cashier’s Office for specific dates.
If you are a new student applying for Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab) or Chapter 33 (Post 9-11), you need to complete the intake process with the Sierra College Veterans Success Center before registering for classes.
Payment by Agency or Company (i.e. Vocational Rehab., Active Military, or Employer)
The Cashier’s Office must receive and process your authorization letter at least two weeks before you register for classes. If processing is not complete, pay for your tuition and you will receive a refund once your contract is processed.
Payment Policy for International Students
International students must pay all tuition and fees in full at the time of registration. Payments can be made with a check, a money order from a U.S. bank, or a credit card (Visa or Mastercard) through mySierra. If you have any questions or complications, please contact International Students Office.
