Deferred Payment Plan
Enrolling in the Deferred Payment Plan allows for the fall and spring semester registration fees to be paid in five monthly installments of 20% each. Registration fees for Summer Sessions, the UC Extension Fall Program for Freshmen, and certain self-supporting programs (i.e., MFE, Executive MBA, Summer LLM, etc.) are not eligible for the Deferred Payment Plan option. For current registration fee amounts, see the Registrar's web site.
Due dates for the installment payments are:
|Installments||Fall Term||Spring Term|
|First installment||August 15||January 15|
|Second installment||September 15||February 15|
|Third installment||October 15||March 15|
|Fourth installment||November 15||April 15|
|Fifth installment||December 15||May 15|
A non-refundable participation fee of $40 per semester will be assessed to your CARS account. Please do not pay the participation fee until it is billed.
To elect the Deferred Payment Plan, use e-Check to submit the amount of the first installment noted in the message section of the CARS e-Bill. This account will not be on the plan until the first payment is received. Subsequent payment amounts will be included in the "Minimum Amount due" figure listed on the monthly bill.
Deadlines for electing the plan are September 15 (fall) and February 15 (spring).
If installment payments are not credited to the account by the due date, the following may occur:
- The account may be assessed a late fee. See section on delinquent accounts.
- A block may be placed on your registration for future terms
- You may be dropped from the rolls, i.e. grades will not post to your transcript until all registration fees for the term are paid in full (applies to December and May installments)
