Quick Fee-based FAQs

SBCC School of Extended Learning accepts checks, cash and major credit cards. Online registration requires a credit or debit card. You can pay with either a check, cash or a credit/debit card if you register in person at the Schott or Wake Campus.

Materials fees include items used in class or taken home (e.g. handouts, food for cooking, etc). Lab fees include specialized classroom supplies, utilities, personnel costs and may include off-campus classroom rental fees. The $5 registration fee helps pay for administrative costs associated with registration that are not covered by the other fees. Without regard to the number of classes enrolled in, students pay this fee only once per semester no matter how many classes or whether paying by cash, check or credit card.  Note: This fee cannot be refunded even if a class is cancelled for whatever reason.

If you enrolled in a Fee-based class that is being taught via Zoom, the instructor will email you the Zoom link before the class starts.  If you have questions regarding the link, please connect by email with your instructor.  Instructor emails - by program and class - can be found here.  Go to the correct semester and click the Fee-based button.

The minimum enrollment for fee-based classes is (5) students, with the exception of classes with lab fees.  If a class does not meet the enrollment anticipated by the instructor, the instructor has discretion to cancel. In the event a class is cancelled, the student receives a refund or can apply the fees to another class.

Yes. You can apply online or in person for needs-based tuition assistance for fee-based classes. Tuition assistance is granted on the basis of need and availability. See the Tuition Assistance page.
