Paying Your Bill

Before students can register for classes they are required to acknowledge and accept responsibility to pay for all enrolled classes.  Payments must be in U.S. Dollars drawn on a U.S. bank to be fully credited to the account.  Payments in other currencies or drawn on a non-U.S. bank may not be posted immediately and will be posted for an amount adjusted for conversion rates and bank fees.

Bills are due 5 days before the term starts.  There are no adjustments for national or UC holidays. Charges posted after this date are due 7 days after posting.

Please know that the student bill is a dynamic bill representing charges and credits, including aid and loans, for a term as of the time it is viewed on-line. In most cases the bill will automatically reflect a change in enrollment. Generally room and board charges will post to your bill approximately 7 weeks prior to the start of a term. Additional details about room and board charges can be found on the housing website ( Please direct questions about room and board to Housing & Food Services via email at

Returned Payments

A non-refundable $35 service fee will be charged to any student's account for any paper check, ACH (eCheck) or credit card payment returned for any reason.

If a student or their authorized payer has three or more returned payments, a registration block may be put on the student's account until their balance is paid in full and check payment privileges will be revoked.

Returned payments will be reversed on a student's account. Any balance remaining will be payable immediately and will be subject to the current late fee policy.
