Payment of Charges

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.
