The fee for non-resident tuition is $200.00 per unit. Effective Fall 2016 this rate will increase to $211.00 per unit. This fee is in addition to a $46 per unit enrollment fee mandated by the State of California.

The health insurance fee may be waived for those students who provide proof they have current health insurance coverage valid in the United States or for those students who are not physically attending any onsite West Hills Community College District classes (e.g. attending only online classes).
To request a waiver of the health insurance fee, please send your request with proof of insurance to West Hills College Coalinga, Attention: International Students Office, 300 Cherry Lane, Coalinga, CA 93210.
International students may obtain more information about purchasing health insurance from the International Students Program Office located on the West Hills College Coalinga campus.
Students must pay for required instructional materials. When such fees are indicated, the materials for which the fees are levied are supplied at District cost. These are tangible materials that are essential to satisfaction of course objectives, have value to the student outside the classroom, belong to the student, and may be taken home. These materials include, but are not limited to, such items as textbooks, workbooks, syllabus, computer disks, tools, uniforms, canvases and other art supplies. Students may be advised by their instructor to purchase certain optional instructional materials that enhance a student’s learning experience in the classroom but are not essential to completion of course objectives.
