Returned Check/Charge Policy

Admissions and Records will notify students by email if their check or credit card payment is returned for any reason. A "returned check/payment hold" will be placed on all accounts, which will block student's ability to add/drop classes, obtain grades or transcripts, or any other records or registration service. To remove the hold, the original payment plus $25 returned item charge must be received.

Foothill College reserves the right to refuse to accept personal checks from persons who have previously written bad checks. Bounced checks are liable for up to three times the amount of the check or $100.00, whichever is more, plus the face value of the check and any court costs.
