  5. Student Representation Fee:  In October 2019 Assembly Bill 1504 was signed into law, requiring California Community Colleges to collect a student representation fee of $2 per semester.  All students who initially register for classes on or after January 1, 2020 will have the $2 Student Representation Fee (STRP) assessed.   Students may opt out of the fee, please read below for more information on the fee and how to opt out.

    What is it? 

    It is a mandatory fee supporting student representation efforts at the local and state level. The student representation fee is authorized by Education Code Section 76060.5 which states "The student representation fee authorized by this section shall be collected by the officials of the community college...for student representation fees.  The money collected pursuant to this section shall be expended to provide support for governmental affairs representatives of local or statewide student body organizations who may be stating their positions and viewpoints before city, county, and district governments, and before offices and agencies of state government..."

    One dollar ($1) of the fee goes to support the statewide Student Senate of California Community Colleges (SSCCC) and the other $1 is to support Victor Valley College Associated Student Body to be used toward representing VVC students at the state and local level.  The fees will cover the costs for registration and travel.

    Does Financial Aid Cover the STRP?

    Students are responsible for the Student Representation fee.  If you do not pay this fee, your account may be placed on hold and you may not be able to register.  It is possible your financial aid (if eligible) will cover it upon disbursement.  The California College Promise Grant (CCPG) covers enrollment fees only.

    How do I opt out of this fee?

    The STRP fee is charged at the time of initial registration, beginning January 1, 2020.  Students may opt out of this fee by submitting the          Student Representation Fee Opt-Out Form.  The form must be printed, filled out, signed and submitted each fall, spring, or summer terms for which you are enrolled.

  6. Student Transportation Fee: All students registering for credit classes will be charged a mandatory, non-waivable Transportation Fee.  For fall/spring terms, the fee for students enrolled in less than 6 units will be $5.50 and students enrolled in 6 or more units will be a maximum of $6.  For summer/winter terms, the fee will be $3 per student.  The Student Transportation Fee is authorized by revised Education Code Section 76361.1 and allows for this fee based upon the favorable vote of a majority of the students of the district who voted at an election on the question of whether or not the governing board should require all students to pay a fee for transportation services.

 

  1. Parking Permit: Students may purchase permits through WebAdvisor from a third party vendor (Credentials Order Processing Services).  Permits will be mailed directly to the student by the vendor.
    • Parking fee:
      • $40.00 plus a $4.50 processing fee - Fall and Spring Semesters
      • $20.00 plus a $3.75 processing fee - Fall and Spring Semesters (for BOGG eligible students)
      • $20.00 plus a $4.50 processing fee  or $3.75 processing fee (BOGG eligible students)  - Winter and Summer Sessions

NOTE:  

Agencies issuing vouchers for student parking permits must now include the applicable sales tax on all payment authorizations.  Calculate sales tax on the price of the parking permit then add the associated processing fee to the permit price plus the calculated sales tax.  For example with 7.75% sales tax: $40 permit + $3.10 sales tax + $4.50 processing fee = $47.60.  If sales tax is not included on the voucher, payment liability will fall on the students.

Parking permits are required and must be displayed to park on campus, Monday-Saturday. Parking rules and regulations can be found at http://www.vvc.edu/offices/campus_police/.  Parking rules and regulations are also printed on the front of the parking permits.

Questions regarding parking information should be directed to the Campus Police Office at 245-4271, ext. 2329/2516, between the hours of 7:30am and 4:00pm (Pacific Time Zone).

Books & Supplies: Students may purchase books and supplies for their classes at the Rams Bookstore or online at www.vvcRams.com. Expenses for full-time students range from $200-400 per semester. Scholarships and financial aid may be available.

Auditing: Auditing is allowed by instructor permission on a space-available basis (Education Code 72252.3). This is to ensure that students taking courses for credit toward degree or certificate completion have the opportunity to do so. Students can obtain a course audit form from the Admissions Office the first day of classes.   The cost is $15 per unit per semester. Auditing fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Credit by Exam:Credit by Exam is allowed by a student after successfully completing 12 semester units of credit at Victor Valley College. The student must request a form from the Admissions Office to initiate the process. Keep in mind that Credit by Exam is not a right, it is the department's discretion to offer the exam.

Upon approval, with the required signatures, California resident students will pay the current enrollment fees and non-residents must pay out-of-state resident tuition plus enrollment fees.  The fees are non-refundable.

A request for credit by examination must be submitted by the fourth week of the term (second week for summer courses).
