Fee Payment Policy Information

Fee Payment Policy- IMPORTANT!

Winter 2016
There will not be a fee payment deadline for the Winter 2016 session.
Spring 2016
Students must PAY THEIR Spring FEES and have a ZERO BALANCE by January 13th, 2016 at 7p.m. or they will be dropped from their fall classes.

FAQs FOR  Winter/Spring 2016:

Is there an option to postpone my fees?
Yes. Only for the Spring 2016 semester. Details soon to come.

Does this affect my ability to add and drop classes before the payment deadline?

What happens if I enroll into a class after the published payment deadline? 
Payment must happen on the same day (before midnight) as the enrollment transaction or all add/reinstate transactions made that day will be lost. Ex: You are enrolled in 6 units for the Spring semester and pay before January 13th, 2016 at 7PMAfter January 13th, 2016 you drop 3 units and enroll into 6 more units, but you don’t pay for the additional 3 units that same day.  You will lose the enrollment of all your classes, despite having a credit after the drop.  The system doesn’t know which class you wanted to have the credit put toward so it drops those 6 units.  Enroll and pay the same day or you will lose your seat!

What if I’m on Financial Aid? 
You are responsible for your health fees and ensuring that you have a ZERO BALANCE before the published payment deadlines. Be sure your BOG for the new year has been processed well before the payment deadline.  You can also apply online for the eBOG at the same time you enroll. Remember, you must have successfully completed the process prior to the drop deadline.  Contact the Financial Aid office for specific information.

How can I tell if I have a ZERO BALANCE? Log into Corsair Connect, click on the Enrollment tab, select the term (Summer or Fall semester) and click FEES ASSESSED to see what fees you may still owe for that specific term. 

Can I partially pay for my fees?
If paying online, all fees for enrollment must be paid for at one time.  Partial fee payment can happen in person at the Bursar’s office, but full payment must be received before the published deadline. If you are enrolling into Summer and Fall online, you cannot just pay your Summer or Fall fees.  You will be required to pay for both your Summer and Fall fees online.
What if I’m a Non-Resident?
You will be responsible for paying for your enrollment fees and having a zero balance before the published deadlines  or you will be dropped from your classes.
