2011-2012 Payment of Tuition and Fees and Refund Procedures

CHARGES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.

Payment of charges

All general University charges (Tuition, Student Services Fee, and, as appropriate, Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition or Nonresident Supplemental Tuition for nonresidents of California) and deposits must be paid at the time of registration, or within the semester or quarter in accordance with an authorized campus installment or deferred fee payment plan, as announced by the Chancellor.

Other charges and deposits may be paid at this time if desired; in any event, all miscellaneous charges should be paid within one week of the date of registration or by the date announced by the Chancellor. An additional charge will be made for failure to pay required charges or deposits by the dates announced (see Miscellaneous Fees and Service Charges published by each campus).

Receipts of proof of payment are issued for all payments and these should be carefully preserved. No student will be entitled to a refund except after surrender to the Cashier's Office of the student's original receipt, if issued, or canceled check, money order, or registration card.
