Registration and Fee Payment
Horizontal Rule

How are my fees paid?

Great news! Your fees are paid automatically from financial aid when you have any of the following types of aid awarded to you:

  • State University Grant (SUG)
  • Educational Opportunity Grant (EOPG)
  • Cal Grant A, Cal Grant B (for fees)
  • State Graduate Fellowship
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • Federal Perkins Loan (if accepted)
  • Federal Stafford Loan (if accepted)
  • Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan (if accepted)

When you have a grant award or if you accept your loan offer, you automatically qualify for a postponement of your fee payment if the award meets or exceeds your fee obligation. If your “pending aid ” on your account exceeds your fee amount, you do not need to make a payment. If you do not have enough aid to cover all of your fees, you will need to pay the balance.

What if I’m still waiting to hear about my financial aid award?

If your file is complete and you are waiting to be awarded, you may qualify for postponement of your fee payment until your financial aid application is processed. We will notify you by email if you qualify for estimated aid to postpone your fees. IMPORTANT: Check your email and TITAN Online frequently and respond right away if we request additional documentation. You are not eligible for postponement of your fee payment unless your financial aid file is complete.

When are my fees paid?

Financial aid is disbursed the week before classes begin, provided you are enrolled and eligible for payment. Your financial aid is applied to your outstanding balance and any remaining funds will be prepared and paid to you.

What else do I need to know?

If you don’t have a grant awarded or if your grant award is not enough to cover full payment of your registration fees, you must pay the balance. If you want to use a loan to pay your fees, you must follow all procedures (including accepting the loan and completing pre-loan counseling and selecting a lender) to ensure the loan funds are available for fee payment when classes begin.

Regardless of the type of aid you are awarded, you are responsible for payment of your fees if for any reason your financial aid does not pay your fees by the end of the fourth week of classes. If you do not pay your fees by the first day of the fifth week of classes, you will be subject to disenrollment and/or withholding of all University services, including registration, will be withheld.
