Can someone other than the student activate FPP?
No. Only a student can activate the plan through Cal Central. While a student may give a parent/other person delegate access to view financials and pay bills, only the student can activate the plan.
Do I need to make a payment to activate the plan?
While payment is not required to activate FPP you must pay an amount equal to the first installment by the Friday prior to instruction to avoid cancellation.
I have partial financial aid and want to be on the payment plan. Do I need to make a payment to activate the plan?
Payment will not be required to activate the FPP.
Aid will reduce the balance; FPP will recalculate based on the new balance and installments (still 5) will adjust accordingly.
I mail in my payment. Can someone at UC Berkeley activate the plan for me?
No. In order to participate in the FPP, you must complete the process online.
What happens if I don’t pay my installment by the due date?
If you do not make payment according to the due dates outlined in your Installment Schedule, you may incur late fees and have a block placed on your account.
Is the FPP participation fee refundable?
No. You will be charged a non-refundable $60 fee to participate in the FPP.
Can I set up the FPP for the whole academic year?
You can enroll in the FPP at the beginning of each term. You are not able to enroll for the full academic year. See the “Enrollment” section for details.
How do I cancel the FPP once enrolled?
If you decide you no longer wish to make installment payments under the FPP, simply make a lump sum payment for the remaining balance. This will fulfill the repayment agreement and the FPP will be complete for that term.
