Types of Fees

Upper Division Coursework Fee for B.S. in Interaction Design

All students enrolled in graded upper-division credit courses in the Interaction Design Bachelor of Science degree at Santa Monica College must pay an additional fee of $84 per unit ($130/unit CA Resident, $419/unit Non-Resident). This added fee will not be covered by the California College Promise Grant.

Adult Education Classes

There are no enrollment fees, student service fees, or health fees for classes with section numbers at or above 7000.

Student ID Card Fee

Students in credit classes will pay a fee each semester or session for a Student ID card. The fee is optional but provides access to special benefits such as checking out materials from the Library and riding the Big Blue Bus for free (with paid Associated Students membership fee).

Students not wishing to pay this fee must opt-out by the Refund Deadline corresponding to the earliest Refund Deadline for a class the student is enrolled in during the term. The student must request this opt-out directly at the Cashier’s Office (formerly the Bursar's Office). Requests to retroactively opt-out after the Refund Deadline has passed will not be granted. The fee will be owed and remain outstanding if student does not opt-out by the Refund Deadline. 

Students who completely withdraw from all classes by the Refund Deadline will be automatically opted out from payment of ID Card and AS fees.


Associated Student Body Membership Fee

Students in credit classes pay an optional fee each semester or session for Associated Students Membership support, which provides access to many benefits.

Students not wishing to pay this fee must opt-out by the Refund Deadline corresponding to the earliest Refund Deadline for a class the student is enrolled in during the term. The student must request this opt-out directly at the Cashier’s Office (formerly the Bursar's Office). Requests to retroactively opt-out after the Refund Deadline has passed will not be granted. The fee will be owed and remain outstanding if student does not opt-out by the Refund Deadline. 

Students who completely withdraw from all classes by the Refund Deadline will be automatically opted out from payment of ID Card and AS fees.​

Health Services Fee

Students taking credit classes on campus will pay a mandatory Health Services fee. The Health Services fee is mandatory. Services are provided at the Health Center and include basic health services performed by a nurse, information, referrals, emergency first aid treatment, and free or reduced-cost immunizations.

Nonresident Tuition Fee

Nonresidents (both international and domestic) must pay the nonresident tuition and capital outlay fees, in addition to the state enrollment fee, all charged on a per-unit basis. For details on the fee exception per AB947 (see Residency Information) please click here.

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

Student parking permits for the Main Campus cost $85 per semester. Permits are sold in-person at the Bursar's Office or online at Corsair Connect. If you have purchased a parking decal for the SMC Main Campus, this decal may be used for parking at any of the satellite and shuttle transit parking areas as well.

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 serve 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 a California College Promise Grant (formerly a BOG Fee Waiver) may purchase a discounted parking permit for $30 at the Bursar's Office. Parking decals are required to park at SMC’s Main campus, CMD, and PAC. A free satellite-campus-only parking decal required for the Bundy Campus.
