Tuition and Fees
Nearly all fees to attend College of Marin (COM) are determined by the California State Legislature. Before registering for classes, students must clear any prior semester’s unpaid fees with the Cashiering Services Office on either campus. We strongly believe that College should be accessible to all. Review our Payment Policy for more information, including our Payment Plan option. A variety of federal, state, and community programs can help to cover school and living expenses; see our Financial Aid page for more information.

* Optional Fees
The technology fee supports the establishment, maintenance, and upgrades of student computer labs and continued software access, and is used exclusively for those purposes. The labs are not supported by any state or federal funds. $2 of the fee is loaded onto a Go Print card that can be obtained at the library. Students have the right to refuse to pay the fee for religious, political, moral, or financial reasons. Waivers for each optional fee must be submitted to the Cashiering Services Office by the term’s refund date, approximately two weeks after the start of full-term instruction. For late start courses or audit students, optional fee waivers must be submitted on the day of registration.
