  • Fall Class Cancellation is September 6th

    All registration and tuition fees for fall quarter are “Past Due” the later of the "Past Due" date (08/29/2018) or four days after charges were added to the Student Account unless the charge is deferred by financial aid. Students with Past Due charges will have a registration hold placed on the Student Account preventing the student from adding or changing classes.

    A past due account balance not paid by September 6, 2018 and not deferred by financial aid may result in the student being dropped from all fall classes.

    Monitor your Poly Portal (Money Matters tab) for up-to-date information regarding the details of your specific account.
