Past Due Student Accounts
Students are responsible for all fees on their account. If a student has fees on their account, then the account is considered past due and they will be unable to register for future classes.
If a student failed to attend a course and did not drop the courses by the refund deadline, they will be responsible for all fees accrued. Failure to drop a class does not warrant a refund or waiver.
Cashiers office will contact students throughout the semester to collect past due amounts.
- Past due amounts greater than 2 semester terms will be sent out to a third-party collections agency and you will get notified by COTOP (Chancellor’s Office Tax Offset Program).
- After you receive notice from COTOP you will have 30 days to make the payment.
- Once the account is sent to collections, the student will be at risk of having the money owed to the school, be deducted from the student’s state income tax return, lottery winnings, or other state to pay off the students’ debt.
(COTOP - Chancellor’s Office Tax Offset Program allows Mira Costa College to recover any past due student payments)
