Student s will be given the option to pay or postpone their fees by the deadline above. The fee postponement option will be available to domestic (not F1/F2-Visa) students in Corsair Connect.
Students must have a $0.00 balance or must have postponed their fees, otherwise they will be recursively dropped from unpaid courses for non-payment (“last course in, first course out”) until a "zero" or positive fund balance is achieved.
If the fee postponement option is available for the term, domestic students will not be dropped from courses they enroll in after the fee payment deadline, but a hold will be placed on their account preventing them from adding/dropping courses, getting transcripts, enrollment verifications, etc.
F1/F2 students enrolling in any class after the payment deadline must pay for any new courses they added before midnight of the same day, otherwise they will be dropped from that course.
Students are responsible for dropping themselves from courses.
Adding or dropping a class after the published refund deadline noted in student's Corsair Connect account will result in a full assessment of fees.
All fees subject to change.
Fees may be paid through Corsair Connect by Visa or MasterCard, or in person at the Bursar's Office by cash, money order, or cashiers check, or credit card.

Fee Payment FAQs
What happens if I enroll into a class after the published payment/postponement deadline?
Students are responsible for all fees if they fail to drop themselves prior to the refund deadlines, which is located next to all enrolled classes in the student's Corsair Connect account.
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 California College Promise Grant (formerly the BOGFW) for the new year has been processed well before the payment deadline. You can also apply online for the grant 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?
Login to Corsair Connect, click on the Enrollment tab, select the term of interest 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 in their entirety. 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 multiple semesters/sessions online, you cannot just pay for one of the enrolled semesters/sessions. You will be required to pay for all 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.
