Tuition & Fees
Yakima Valley College (YVC) understands the cost of attending college is important to our students. Therefore, YVC publishes the Lower Division Tuition & Fees and Upper Division Tuition & Fees in the
YVC Course Catalog and on the Registration & Records website.
Generally, tuition is due when you register. Paying at that time will eliminate any chance that you will be dropped from your classes for nonpayment. If you are not able to pay tuition when you register, please see the
Important Dates page for tuition due dates. If your tuition is paid by a third party, it is your responsibility to verify your tuition has been paid.
Tuition Payment Methods
YVC has multiple methods for students to pay their tuition.
- Bring your tuition payment to the Cashier's Office in the Deccio Higher Education Center.
- Mail your tuition payment to:
P.O. Box 22520
Yakima, WA 98907-2520.
Please include your SID and the quarter you are enrolling. If you are paying tuition for someone other than yourself, please indicate the student's name and SID.
Students can be refunded for tuition if they qualify under the YVC Refund Policy.
