The California Legislature has set community college enrollment fees statewide at $46.00 per unit. All other fees are subject to change without notice. Please consult the fee schedule as published in each semester’s Schedule of Classes for current fees. Financial responsibility is placed upon the student once he/she enrolls in semester units at Taft College. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure fees are paid at the time of enrollment or by the due date specified for each semester.
If financial obligation is not met by the stated deadline, the student may be dropped
from classes. Courses not dropped by the deadline will incur fees.
Students who are pre-registering must pay their enrollment fees
or secure financial aid by the following date: Spring 2022 Semester – December 15, 2021Continue reading →
Students may be dropped from units in which they are enrolled if fees have not been paid, if financial aid has not been established, or if a payment plan has not been initiated by 4:00pm on the deadline specified above.
DO NOT ASSUME NON-ATTENDANCE WILL RESULT IN AN AUTOMATIC REFUND.
Enrollment fees incurred after the payment deadlines established for each semester are due by 4:00pm on the day in which courses are added.
There are two (2) ways to pay your fees:
• Pay online: https://www.taftcollege.edu/
• Pay by phone: 661-763-7713

The student is ultimately liable and deemed responsible for withdrawing from or dropping classes that they will not be attending. IT IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTRUCTOR TO DROP A STUDENT FOR NON-ATTENDANCE.
