SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – City College of San Francisco is trying to get the word out that the school owes more than a million dollars to current and former students.

An insert in the San Francisco Examiner Monday listed 35 pages of names, and the amount owed, dating back more than ten years. Some had more than $2,000 headed their way.

The school is required by law to notify people of the pending refund, based on the last known address. The problem is, students move all the time.

If you believe the school owes you money, you have until June 25th to request payment. You must file a claim with the SF Community College Business Office, 50 Phelan Avenue, e103, SF 94112. Or call (415) 239-3760 and provide proof of your claim. The claim form is available online.

City College alums aren’t the only ones who could have some cash coming to them. The California State Controller’s Office is holding on to an estimated $1.6 billion owed to current and former residents.

California residents can do an online search to see if they’re owed anything. Governor Brown himself has $61 coming back.
