Make plans today to have your payment ready on the same day you register...
Already in-progress one year now, Same-Day-Pay came to SBVC. All students will be
required to pay for their classes on the same day they register.
Students will need to plan ahead in anticipation of registering for an upcoming semester
as the previous policy allowing for three days to pay has been discontinued.
Read the frequently-asked questions about same-day payments
Reasons for the change include:
• Extending availability for a student to register in rapidly-filling classes during
their priority registration period instead of having sections being displayed as closed
while a student was holding the class during the previous three-day window for payment
• Providing consistent processes and documentation across the SBCCD (this policy will
mirror the Crafton Hills College policy for same-day pay) will minimize confusion
for students enrolled at both SBVC and CHC
• Moving to same day payment alleviates staff workloads, resolves audit findings related
to accounting, and does not negatively impact enrollment
Many more details including a “Frequently Asked Questions” document and answers to
specific scenarios (“What if I register on a Sunday?”) will be added to this web page
over the coming weeks. In addition, other website ads and campus promotions will be
communicating this change (and others).
Please spread the word so that all students registering for any semester are prepared
in advance of their registration period.
