You are responsible for monitoring charges on your student account and ensuring that payments are made in a timely manner. Note, charges on your student account may have different due dates. Do not assume all charges are due at the same time. For the most up-to-date information on your account and to view new charges, see the My Finances page in CalCentral.
If your account becomes delinquent, a block may be placed on your student account that can affect registration in future terms. Additionally, past due balances are subject to late fees each month payment is missed. See below for more information on late fees.
Additionally, delinquent student accounts may be assigned to a third party collection agency and may be submitted to the California Franchise Tax Board. Once referred to a collection agency, you will be referred to that agency for payment arrangements.
Payments made to your student account will apply to the oldest charges first. If you have past due charges, payments will apply to these charges and will not be redirected to pay newer charges. See how this relates to the Cancel for Non-Payment Policy.
Late payment penalties are assessed at the rate of $25 monthly on accounts with a delinquent balance of $50 or greater. Late fees will continue to be assessed every 30 days and are due the day after they have been assessed. No more than one late fee will be assessed in a 30 day period. Once a student account becomes past due and late fees are assessed you must pay past due charges and late fees to bring the account current.
