IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING FEE AMOUNTS:
The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.

Fee Payment Policy and Class Cancellation Date for Fall 2014
In order to register, all past due balances must be paid:
- Before you attempt to register, go to your Student Center in your portal and make sure you have no balance due. (In the portal, go to the Money Matters page. Click on the Student Center.)
- If you do have a balance, make an online payment.
- Check your holds in the Student Center. If you have any, get them cleared, as holds may prevent you from registering.
FALL REGISTRATION AND TUITION FEES WILL BE DUE* AND VIEWABLE ON YOUR STUDENT ACCOUNT STARTING:
Continuing students 7/14/14
Block Enrolled Freshman 8/4/14
New Students not block enrolled charged at time of registration in August 2014
(*See EXCEPTIONS below)
How Much to Pay
- On or after July 14, 2014, go to your Student Center in your portal. (In the portal, go to the Money Matters tab. Click on the Student Center link.)
- View your student account balance.
- Your balance due should equal the amount displayed in the chart above for your college and number of units. If the balance is slightly more, you probably have miscellaneous course fee charges. (You are not charged for wait-listed classes until you are actually enrolled in the class.)
How To Pay
Online Payment (preferred method)
To pay online from your portal, click either the "Make a payment now" link on the Money Matters tab, or the "Make a payment" link in your Student Center.
Alternatively, from outside the portal, see Online Payment Options.
Cash or Check: Pay at the University Cashier's office: Building 1, Room 131E. Office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Make check payable to Cal Poly and mail to:
San Luis Obispo, CA 93407
Please allow 10 days for mailing time and include your student ID number on the check. For your convenience, download a Payment Remittance Form.
Note: Before mailing a check, be sure to review the class cancellation dates below. Online payment is the better option especially if the time is running short.
Students who have financial aid for the current quarter, have an approved third-party contract on file, or are receiving fee waivers, will not be subject to financial registration holds during registration appointments or class cancellation. Exemption from class cancellation is confirmed on the Money Matters tab of your portal by the message 'Not Subject to Cancellation'.
Once the financial aid for the term is posted to the student account or registration for the next term begins (whichever occurs first), a registration hold will be placed at that time if your fees are not fully paid. The hold will prevent adding or swapping classes until the balance is paid.
What Happens If You Do Not Pay Your Fees
Fees that are not paid by August 18, 2014 will become past due, and a registration hold will be placed on your account that will prevent you from adding or swapping classes until the balance is paid. If you register or incur additional fees on or after August 18th, those fees will become past due after 4 days.
If you have not paid your fees, by 4:00 p.m. on the following class cancellation date, you may be cancelled from all of your enrolled classes:
Cancellation date: August 26, 2014
See Exceptions Above.
Late Registration Fees
If you enroll in classes after the regular enrollment rotation period, and are not already enrolled in at least one class from that enrollment period, a $25 late fee will be charged to your account and must be paid with your other registration and tuition payments. If you were admitted after the regular enrollment rotation period, or had circumstances beyond your control that did not allow you to comply with the enrollment and payment requirements during the regular enrollment rotation period, you may contact the Student Accounts Office at 805-756-1428 to discuss the late fee assessment.
If You Decide Not To Attend This Term
- You must drop all your classes before the term begins to have your charges fully reversed.
- If you wait and drop all your classes after the term begins or withdraw after add/drop, your fee charges will be prorated, meaning you will be charged for every day of enrollment, whether you attended classes or not. See the Fee Refund Policy for complete details.
Payment Deferral Information for Students Receiving Financial Aid
Registration and tuition fee payment is automatically deferred for financial aid recipients. This is confirmed by the message ' Not Subject to Cancellation' on the Money Matters tab of your portal. Registration and tuition fees not covered by the financial aid award are due after the award has been posted to the student account. A registration hold will be placed at that time for any unpaid balance.
Students living on-campus can request that their financial aid pay for their housing and dining plans, provided they have accepted sufficient aid to cover the total amount of registration and tuition fees, as well as the total amount of the housing or dining fees. See Financial Aid for Housing and Dining for details.
