Payment Information

Deadlines and Payment Options

Payment Deadline/Policy

A payment for your classes is due when you register. Sierra College allows for a 10 day grace period to make payment in full or set up a payment plan unless you:

  • Are eligible for Tier 1 or Tier 2 on the 2021/2022 awarding priorities for Two Years Free
  • Have qualified for the California College Promise Grant (formerly BOG)
  • Have contacted Admissions and Records to claim a financial hardship (i.e., unexpected expense, loss of job, able to pay but not within 10 days)
  • Are a Veteran (continuing student) certified under Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab) or Chapter 33 (Post 9-11)

If you do not pay for your classes by the first day of the semester, 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 classes by the add/drop/refund deadline (found on your class schedule in mySierra), you will be responsible for paying your tuition and fees, even if you do not attend

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.

How to Make Payments

You can pay for your classes online, in-person, or by mail.


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.

In-person at all Sierra College locations

Payments can be made in person with card, cash, or check at:

  • Rocklin's Bursar Office
  • Student Services at NCC and Tahoe-Truckee
  • Admissions and Records in the Roseville Center

By mail or Fax - complete payment form

To make a payment by mail, complete the payment form, and mail it to:

Sierra College
Attention: Bursar's Office
5100 Sierra College Blvd.
Rocklin, CA 95677
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 (formerly BOG)

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 your 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 $20 per semester.

To manage your payment plan, go to mySierra, click "Pay for Classes/1098-T Tax Forms", then select "Setup/Manage Payment Plan."

Payment plans can be set up when you register for classes. 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.

Check with the Bursar’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. Workers’ Comp., Voc. Rehab., Active Military, Ghidotti or Employer)

The Bursar’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.
