All regular students are required to pay enrollment fees at the time of in-person registration. Registration fees made online or by phone are due by published deadlines (www.evc.edu - quick links section) or students may be dropped from coursework. Courses added after the first day of classes must be paid in full or dropped before the Census Day. California residents are charged $46 per unit. The California Legislature may revise enrollment fees at any time, and retroactively charge students already enrolled.
High school students attending classes part-time in the SJECCD will not be charged enrollment fees, but other fees may be required, such as parking, books, and materials. High school students attending full-time will be charged all fees per California state requirements.
California College Promise Grant (formerly BOG waiver)
Students may be eligible for a California College Promise Grant – CCPG. Please see the information in the Financial Aid section of this catalog.
Applications for the CCP Grant are available in the Office of Financial Aid or online at http://www.evc.edu/StudentAffairs/Documents/CA%20Promise%20Grant.pdf.
Parking Permits and Fees
Semester parking permits are $45 automobile / $15 motorcycle and are available for purchase online at https://MyWeb.sjeccd.edu. There are no refunds for parking permit purchases. If you are a Financial Aid student receiving a California College Promise Grant (CCPG), your parking discount will be automatically applied online. Every online purchase of a permit will include a temporary permit that can be printed and used immediately. Daily permits are $3 cash and are available from vending machines located in Student Parking Lots. Paid parking is enforced Monday through Saturday; parking without a permit or parking along Yerba Buena or San Felipe Roads may result in a parking ticket fine. Permits and daily parking tickets are good at both EVC and SJCC campuses. A parking permit does not guarantee a parking space, but merely gives the student the convenience of not buying daily permits.
Students who receive a CCPG will only be required to pay $25 per term.
Transit Fee - VTA Eco Pass
Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Eco Pass Clipper Card is here!
Effective Fall semester 2016, a personalized VTA Eco Pass Clipper Card (Eco Pass) became available to all registered Evergreen Community College students.

The Eco Pass fee will be charged automatically upon student enrollment.
Students enrolled half-time or more (6.0 units or more): $11.00 per semester

Failure To Clear Financial Obligations
A student is responsible for paying all financial obligations at the College. The College and the District will deny further services to a student who does not pay their fees by published deadlines.
Students with a “fee hold” cannot register for subsequent semesters, request a copy of transcripts or transfer I-20 records.
