Currently, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, students do not have bursar holds on their account that will prevent them from enrolling. Also, students are not being dropped from classes for non-payment if they have a balance on their account. The deadline to pay all fees is always two weeks before classes begin, but it is not being enforced at the moment. You can also mail your payment to the Cashier’s Office on campus if you are having trouble paying online https://web.peralta.edu/admissions/fees
