                   Tuition and Payment FAQ’s


When is Spring 2015 tuition due?
January 6, 2015. All payments must be received and cashiered on or before this date. We do not consider “post-marked” dates as “paid”.


What happens if I don’t pay my tuition by January 6th?
If you don’t pay your tuition & fees, or are not covered by financial aid, or don’t have a third party authorization form covering tuition & fees on file with Student Accounting by Jan. 6th, you will be disenrolled from your classes.


Where do I find out how much I owe?
Log in to your MYCSUMB Dashboard, and go to your CMS Student/HR. Your most current account balance will always be on your Student Center. For instructions on how to log in and view your account balances, click here: http://cms.csumb.edu/student-center-help


I have a “Spring 15 Reg Fee Extension” hold on my account. What does this mean?
Spring 15 Reg Fee Extension – Student has been granted this extension because tuition & fees are covered by financial aid, or student has a third party authorization form covering registration tuition & fees on file with Student Accounting. This extension is found in the “Holds” section of the student’s Student Center. If you have this extension, you will not be dis-enrolled from classes. Your tuition deadline has been extended to Feb. 2, 2015.


I have a “FA Housing Payment Extension” hold on my account. What does this mean?
FA Housing Payment Extension – Student has been granted this extension because tuition & fees, housing, and meal plan charges are covered entirely by financial aid, or a combination of student payments, financial aid payments, and/or third party payment. This extension is found in the “Holds” section of the student’s Student Center. If you have this extension, your tuition, housing, and meal plan payment deadline has been extended to Feb. 2, 2015.


Why do I have the “Spring 15 Reg Fee Extension” and “FA Housing Payment Extension” hold?
If you have housing charges in addition to your tuition & fess, and you have both of these extensions, it means that all of your charges (tuition, fees, housing, meal plan) are covered by financial aid, or a combination of student payments, financial aid payments, and/or third party payment. If you have both of these extensions, your tuition, housing, and meal plan payment deadline has been extended to Feb. 2, 2015.


What do I do if my financial aid only covers a portion of tuition & fees?
You must pay the remainder of your tuition, or you will be disenrolled from your classes. Your full tuition & fees must be paid on or before the Jan. 6 payment deadline.


How do I get my financial aid money?
Your financial aid money is disbursed to your account during the 1st week of classes. Your financial aid will be credited towards your “balance due”. If you have more financial aid than “charges due”, you will receive a refund. If you enroll in direct deposit, you will get your refund during the first week of classes. If you don’t enroll in direct deposit, your check will be mailed to you at the end of the second week of classes. Instructions to enroll in direct deposit are here: http://cms.csumb.edu/student-center-help If you have less financial aid than “charges due”, you will need to pay the difference before the payment extension deadline, Feb. 2, 1015.


I was disenrolled from my classes due to non-payment. How do I get my classes back?
After the payment deadline has passed, you must pre-pay your tuition & fees in order to register for classes. Once you make your payment, your payment hold will lift within 30 minutes. Then you can attempt to enroll. We can not guarantee that you will be able to enroll in all of the same classes.


I was disenrolled from my classes due to non-payment. I am trying to enroll now, but my Student Center states my amount due is $0. How much do I pay?
Your amount due is $0 because you are not enrolled in any classes. Because the payment deadline has passed, you will need to pre-pay in order to enroll in classes. You can find the tuition & fees costs at: http://onestop.csumb.edu/tuition-fees/spring-2015 Once you have made your payment, your pre-pay hold will lift within 30 minutes and you will be able to enroll.


Is there any kind of payment plan available for tuition & fees?
Yes. You will find the information on the Tuition & Fees Installment Payment Plan (IPP) at: http://onestop.csumb.edu/installment-payment-plan You will need to read and print the form, and send it to: CSUMB, Campus Service Ctr (bldg. 47), 100 Campus Ctr, Seaside, CA 93955.

If you aren’t able to get the original contract to us before Jan. 6th, please fax a copy to 831-582-3399, and mail the original ASAP.
