8. Attend Your Classes
Students should have a copy of their schedule. Schedules are given out at in-person registration and are available to print out at MyWeb. Course name, course status, meeting information, credits and start date are listed on the schedule.
Paid parking is enforced 52 weeks a year, except Sundays and legal holidays. While you can buy one-day parking permits from the machines in the lot at $3 each, it makes much more sense to buy a one-semester parking permit. Semester Parking Permits are $45 automobile / $15 motorcycle / $35 carpool and are available for purchase online at http://MyWeb.sjeccd.edu. If you are a Financial Aid student receiving a Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGFW), your parking discount will be automatically applied online. Every online purchase of a permit will include a temporary permit that can be printed and used immediately. Parking permits are non-refundable.
Parking Do’s and Don’ts
- Do park facing forward into a marked space
- Do obey the speed limit on campus
- Do park in the lots—don’t drive your car onto the campus itself
- Do remember that the District Police Department is an official police
department and it enforces all statutes of the California penal code and vehicle code
- Don’t “make up” your own parking space!
- Don’t park on Yerba Buena Avenue—that area is enforced by the City of
San José and they will tow cars that are parked there
- Don’t park in designated staff lots
When in doubt about parking rules, ask a representative from the police. Any other information may be incorrect.
The District Police can help you if you need a jump-start for your car, and they can unlock some cars, but not those with power locks. If you need an escort back to your car for classes that end late at night, check in at the district police office prior to your class.
Students are expected to attend all sessions of each class. Instructors may drop students from class if they do not attend the first class meeting. Absences may lead to disqualification from a course in which the instructor requires attendance and maintains an attendance record. No student shall be dropped from a course whose absences are fewer than the number of times the class meets in one week. A student who simply stops attending without formally dropping may receive an unsatisfactory grade and may be required to repay financial aid funding.
Students are responsible for dropping their classes; although instructors have the right to drop students for non-attendance, classes are not dropped automatically for non-attendance. A student may drop a class by using http://MyWeb.sjeccd.edu, or in-person at the Office of Admissions and Records. The deadline for dropping classes without a “W” is Monday, February 11, 2013. Please see the Academic Calendar for more information on drop dates and other vital dates in the semester.
The college does not issue refunds automatically. Students must file written refund requests with the Office of Admissions and Records. See the Academic Calendar for specific dates.
The District does not carry credit balances over semesters. Students who do not apply for refunds forfeit any credit balances they may have.
Students who have paid for their courses and then apply for and receive a fee waiver should file a refund form with the Office of Admissions and Records. The form is available in the Office of Admission and records or online at www.evc.edu/admissions/forms/request_for_refund.pdf.
Refunds for canceled classes will be honored only if requested during the term in which the classes were canceled.
No refunds of any type will be granted until all other financial obligations to the District have been satisfied. Refund requests normally take four to six weeks after the deadline to process, and are mailed directly to the student.
There is a $10 processing fee for all registration-associated refund requests (California Administrative Code 58508). Refunds will be made in full for the qualifying amount, minus the processing fee. Processing fees related to refund requests are limited to enrollment fees only. Students may choose to donate refunds to the District Foundation for student scholarships or College support. Such donations are tax deductible.
For more information on refunds, see the EVC catalog or online at www.evc.edu/admissions/fees.htm.
