Summary of Fees


Payment/Postponement Deadlines

  • Summer 2016: Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 7pm

  • Fall 2016: Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at 7pm


Payment Policy

Students will be given the option to pay or postpone their fees by the deadline above.  The fee postponement option will be available to students in Corsair Connect starting on July 13 for Fall 2015. Students not opting to postpone must pay their fees or will be dropped.

  •  Students must have a $0.00 balance or must have postponed their fees, otherwise they will be recursively dropped from unpaid courses for non-payment (“last course in, first course out”). 

  • The College will not automatically drop domestic students for non-payment after July 27 for Fall 2016, but we will drop F1 students for nonpayment after enrolling in classes.

  • Students are responsible to drop themselves from courses. Students who have postponed their fees, or added classes without paying/postponing after July 27 (7 pm) will remain enrolled and a hold will be placed on their account, preventing them from requesting transcripts, enrollment verifications, etc., until the fees are paid.

  • Adding or dropping a class after the published refund deadline noted in student's Corsair Connect account, will result in a full assessment of fees.

  • All fees subject to change.​

  • Fees may be paid through Corsair Connect by Visa or MasterCard, or in person at the Bursar's Office by cash, money order, or cashiers check, or credit card.

Material & Supplies Fees

Some classes require additional fees for materials and supplies. Please consult the class schedule to determine whether any additional fees are required.

On-Campus Parking Decal Fee

An on-campus parking decal does NOT guarantee you a parking space. It entitles you to use on-campus student parking areas on a space-available, first-come/first-served basis. Your parking decal is for on-campus parking only—it is NOT a residential (street) parking permit. The parking decal fee is not refundable after the third week of a Fall or Spring Semester and after the second week of a Summer or Winter session.  Students who receive benefits under Temporary Aid for Needy Families (TANF) or a general assistance program should contact the Bursar's Office for a possible parking fee reduction. Parking decals are required to park at SMC’s Main campus. Free satellite-campus-only parking decals are required for the Bundy Campus, AET or the Airport Arts Campus, and parking at these sites is free for students attending classes there.
