Electronic Payment Options
e-Check:Students can pay their CARS account via e-Check. Log into the Bear Facts web site, select the CARS tab, then click on the E-Bill link. Click the "I Agree" button located at the bottom of the page and proceed with making payment.
Parents and Others can also pay a student's CARS account via e-Check once the student has invited you to do so. View our helpful presentation to learn more.
One Time Payment Gateway:Parents and Others can pay a student's CARS account via the One Time Payment Gateway. The option does not require special passwords or access; however, you must provide the student ID number, the student's last name and the amount you wish to pay. Go to the Bear Facts web site and click the "e-Bill/e-Check Access for Parents and Others (Non-Students)" link. Click on the "CARS One Time Payment" link located on the left-hand side.
Your bank's online bill payment service:When setting up this option, ensure that payment is issued to UC Regents and the account number listed is your Student ID or UCB ID number (located on your E-Bill). Do not list any other information (such as student name, "UCB", "SID", etc) in the account number field.
