Refund Policy

If a student drops a class or withdraws from San Joaquin Delta College and is entitled to a refund it will be automatically processed during the fifth week of the semester for full-term courses and every two weeks thereafter for late starting courses. Refunds will be given for classes dropped before the end of the first two weeks of the term for full-term classes, or before the end of ten percent of the length of class for short-term and Summer Intersession classes.

Request a Refund

To request a refund for courses dropped prior to the start of the term, print the  Refund Request Form and submit it to the Admissions & Records Office, DeRicco Student Services Building Lobby. Forms may also be submitted by mail to:

SJDC - Admissions Office
5151 Pacific Ave, Box 102
Stockton, CA 95207

For parking permit refunds, attach the unused parking permit to a General Petition form submitted to the Admissions & Records Office, DeRicco Building, first floor. Parking permit refunds are granted only if all classes are dropped by the published deadline date, or no later than three business days after ten percent of the length of the class for short-term classes.

Refund Process

San Joaquin Delta College has partnered with Bank Mobile, a refund management company, to disburse student fee refunds as quickly as possible. This new system is designed to make sure student refunds are distributed faster, with greater security, and with more convenience! Even better, if you already have a Bank Mobile Vibe Account, an email notification is sent when the refund is available. 

After Fiscal Services has processed your refund, they will work with BankMobile to issue a Refund Preference Kit. The kit acts as an introductory setup feature in receiving your refund and is sent via the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Once you receive your Refund Preference Kit, head over to and choose a preference:

  • Electronic Deposit to Another Account: Your refund - once available - will be transferred to your personal bank account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from Delta College. Complete processing time normally takes 1 - 2 business days.
  • Deposit to a BankMobile Vibe Account: A BankMobile Vibe card is issued to the student. Your refund - once available - is deposited to your open BankMobile Vibe account. Funds are available the same day funds are released from Delta College. To learn more about the features of a BankMobile Vibe account, click here.
