Online payments are primarily handled through the CASHNet payment portal (except international students who must use Flywire - see below).
Pay by Credit Card or eCheck
- Pay by Credit Card You will be charged a convenience fee of 2.75 %.

International Wire Transfer (Flywire)
- For international students only. You may pay with your home currency (non-USD) by wire transfer from your bank (online, phone, or in person). Three easy steps.
Students - Students have direct access (without a separate login) to the CASHNet payment portal through their Cal Poly portal or by using the link below and their Cal Poly Student 'Empl_ID'. The Empl_ID can be viewed in the my.calpoly.edu portal on the 'Personal Information' channel which is located on the 'Personal Info' tab.
Supporters - Student Supporters have access through their own "Parent Payment Portal" using a Parent PIN and password. Learn How to Set Up a Parent Payment Portal
Note: Online Credit Card or eCheck payments made after 5:00 pm, or on non-business days, will post to the student's account on the next business day.
If you pay by eCheck and your eCheck payment is returned for any reason, including an erroneously entered account number, you will be charged a dishonored check charge of $35, plus any applicable late fees. A hold will also be placed on your records and registration access. (NOTE: Most Money Market Accounts and Lines of Credit do NOT allow eCheck transactions.)
Dishonored eCheck payments are commonly caused by incorrect entry of the account number, namely the wrong number of digits. If you have doubts about your account number, please check with your financial institution before making an eCheck payment. (Do not use the numbers on your ATM card.) Thank you!

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 fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028–66028.6 of the Education Code).
