Coronavirus Announcement impacting operations
On March 16, the public health officers of seven Bay Area jurisdictions, including Marin, issued a legal order directing residents to shelter at home for three weeks beginning March 17. The order limits activity, travel, and business functions to only the most essential needs. The Public Health Order is effective at 12:01 am on March 17, 2020, and will continue to be in effect until 11:59 pm on April 7, 2020, or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended in writing by the health officer. To that end, effective March 17, 2020 all in-person services at the Cashiering Services windows have been suspended until further notice. To contact Cashiering Services please email Cashier@marin.edu or your Accounting Technician directly or leave a voice mail at 415.883.2211, ext. 7806.
The Cashier's Office (also known as the Bursar's Office) is primarily responsible for accepting and processing student tuition and fees as well as processing student refunds and financial aid disbursements. Additionally, the Cashier's Office coordinates parking permits, payment plans, and collections as well as third-party invoicing. Annually, each January, the Cashier's Office will produce and electronically distribute the required Internal Revenue Service Form 1098-T, Tuition Payment Statement.
Validation stickers which also serves as a bus pass with Marin Transit can be picked up at the Cashier's Office for enrolled students. Pick up your COM Card at the Outreach Office and proceed to Cashier's Office to get your validation sticker.

The Cashier's Office accepts the following forms of payment:
- Checks made payable to Marin Community College District

Due to Payment Card Industry (PCI) Standards, credit card payments can no longer be taken over the phone. All credit card payments must be done online through your MyCOM portal or in-person at one of our Cashiering Services windows at Kentfield or Indian Valley Campus.
After Hours Drop Box
Drop Boxes are provided at the Cashiering Services Office at both KTD and IVC Campuses for payments after office hours. Checks and Money orders only (No Cash). Please include your Student ID#(M#), Name & phone number with your payment.
Students are entitled to enroll and participate in classes throughout the semester if they do not have any outstanding balance on their record. During the Priority Enrollment period, students must pay all fees in full prior to established Common Drop Dates or students will be dropped for nonpayment. Once the semester begins students are no longer dropped for non-payment, however, if payment is not made by established deadlines holds will be placed on student accounts. Grades, transcripts, diplomas, and certificates will not be released until the student has paid all outstanding debts to the College. For Common Drop Dates, class and other refund deadlines and policies, refer to Enrollment Services or COM academic calendar.
Waivers for each optional fee must be submitted to the Cashiering Services Office by the term's refund date, approximately two weeks after the start of full term instruction. For late start courses or audit students, optional fee waivers must be submitted on the day of registration.
