Fees are Subject to Change Without Notice
Below is a description of fees you may be charged when you register for classes. Your fees will vary, depending on factors such as residence status, financial aid eligibility, optional fees, supplemental instructional material fees and parking. To estimate your fees, use the Fee Calculation Worksheet or see the Tuition and Basic Fees at-a-Glance.
All students pay a $31 state-mandated per-unit fee.
Instructional Materials Fees
In addition to enrollment fees, instructional materials fees are charged for some courses in accordance with state regulations. These fees are shown in the class listings found in the Schedule of Classes. Designated fees represent the actual cost for materials used in these courses and are generally lower than you would pay if you were to purchase the same items separately. You have the option of paying the fees to the college or providing your own materials of equal quality. A list of materials will be provided by the instructor upon request. The instructor must provide the materials if an issue of health and safety applies.
The transferable parking decal may be transferred from vehicle to vehicle. The quarterly decal must be purchased each quarter. You are eligible for a refund only if you return the unused decal to the Cashier's Office by the 2nd Friday of the quarter or the 1st Friday of summer session, or if all your classes are cancelled by the college.
Please note: Parking decals are not replaced if stolen, lost or damaged.
Student parking decals ordered and paid for online are subject to a small shipping and handling fee ($2.50-$6.00). Upon completion of the online purchase, a printable receipt will be available. You will also receive a purchase confirmation via e-mail or text message. An interim permit will be immediately available to print out. The interim permit (good for 15 calendar days from date of purchase) is for temporary display until your decal arrives in the mail. All decals are mailed to the address specified on the order. In-person payments are still accepted for valid permit orders at the cashier's counter in the Registration & Student Services Building. Students MUST pre-order the decal online before any payment will be accepted at the cashier's counter. There is no shipping and handling charge for payments made in person at the cashier's counter. The interim permit will be printed for the student upon payment in person.
Nonresident Tuition, Out of State
Nonresidents are charged $156 per unit (beginning Summer Session 2016) in addition to the basic and required enrollment fees. The nonresident category includes out-of-state residents (U.S. citizens) and eligible alien visa holders (Ex: A, E, G, I, K, L, H1, H4, permanent resident, etc.) who have been both in the country and holding an eligible visa for one year and one day prior to the beginning of the term, but not in the state of California for one year and one day prior to the beginning of the term.
Beginning Spring 2015, this tuition will be waived for students enrolled in 6 units or less at De Anza, Foothill, or combined. If enrolled more than 6 units district wide, non-resident tuition will be charged for all units enrolled.
Foreign citizens are charged $156 per unit (beginning Summer Session 2016) in addition to the basic and required enrollment fees. The foreign citizen category includes foreign citizens with non-qualifying visas (Ex: C, D, F, H2, J, M, O2, P, Q, TC or TD) and eligible alien visa holders (Ex: A, E, G, I, K, L, H1, H4, permanent resident, etc.) who have not been in the country holding an eligible visa and in the state of California for one year and one day prior to the beginning of the term.
