Welcome to the Los Angeles Pierce College (LAPC) Business Office web page.

Our goal is to assist students to achieve their academic goals by making the fee payment process as simple and efficient as possible.

Students will be able to view their account balances and payment deadline via self-service. To prevent students from being dropped from courses for not paying the mandatory fees, scheduled automatic email notifications will be sent to the student’s laccd.edu email address, and an alert will be posted on the front page of their portal dashboard (myCollege.laccd.edu).

All mandatory fees are due in full at the time of registration and must be paid no later than the due date posted in your student portal. Your enrollment will be cancelled for some or all of your course(s) unless payment is made in full by the due date.

You will not be dropped from your course(s) if you:

  • Are approved and awarded a Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW)
  • Have approved financial aid sufficient to cover all your fees
  • Are sponsored by another government agency and the LAPC Business Office has received confirmation of the anticipated aid that payment is pending
  • Are accepted in the Los Angeles College Promise Program

If you only owe the Health Services Fee and Student Representation Fees, you will not be dropped from classes. However, if the fees are still owed, a hold will be applied to your student account withholding grades, diplomas and future registration privileges.

  • In-person: cash, cashier’s check and money order
  • Online: credit card, ATM/debit card
    • Students can pay fees online by clicking the “Make a Payment” button on their My College.laccd.edu portal. Partial payments can be made, however, all mandatory fees due must be paid by the advertised payment deadline. Optional fees, such as parking and other miscellaneous fees are due, and payable, at the time of order.

Students displaying a Preferred Student Parking Permit/Decal may park, if space is available, in all student lots, including the preferred lots (1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9). As well as legally allowable street parking. The non-preferred parking lot is 5. A permit is required and must be displayed to park on campus. All parking is on a space available basis. Students can buy only one parking permit per semester, regardless if the permit is lost or stolen. Parking permits purchased online will not be mailed out.

Refunds for parking permits are given for permits returned to the Business Office on or before the deadline date. (Deadline date is the same date as the last day to drop without having to pay fees).

The COTOP program is a method of collecting past due fees for the LACCD owed by former students. The LAPC Business Office reviews the accounts receivables and only submits those debts that are permitted to be collected through COTOP. Under the COTOP program, the Chancellor’s Office requests the Franchise Tax Board to offset (deduct) the amount owed to a district from the student/debtor’s personal state income tax refund, lottery winnings or other state refund.

Student accounts that have past due fees may be submitted to COTOP. This can include enrollment and associated fees incurred at LAPC. The LAPC Business Office will send out a letter to the last known address of a student, instructing the student that their past due fees may be sent to COTOP. The student then has 30 days to pay their fees in full.

Please be aware that this debt will not be submitted to any major credit agencies.

If a student’s past due fees are not pain in full in the 30 days after the letters are sent out, the past due fee information will be submitted to the State of California COTOP. Please note that a 25% charge is added to all outstanding fees processed through COTOP.

If the physical location is closed, how can I pay using cash?

Students who choose to pay in cash will need to obtain cashier's check or money order and mail it to the Pierce College Business Office. You must include you Student ID number on the cashier's check or money order so the office can post the payment correctly to your student account. The Business Office will be accessing US Mail weekly and will process payment as timely as possible.
