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 %.
- Pay by eCheck Pay by check, without mailing expense and time. There is NO SERVICE CHARGE for this transaction.
International Payments with Flywire
- For International Students Only: Cal Poly accepts payments from around the world through our International Payment Portal, powered by Flywire. In this portal you can pay by international wire transfer, foreign debit/credit cards, as well as other local payment options from your home country.
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 Username 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 may be charged a returned 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. Tuition and fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU reserves the right, even after initial payments are made, to increase or modify any listed tuition or fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide tuition, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular quarter has begun. All CSU-listed tuition and 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 tuition 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).
