Student Payment Plan

The student payment plan allows students to pay their fees over a few months instead of all at once. This can make fee payment more manageable for students who do not receive financial aid or a California College Promise Grant (formerly Board of Governors or BOG Fee Waiver).

To find the payment plan, log into eServices, click Student Center, then click Cashnet Student Payment Plan in the Finances section.

How the payment plan works

The payment plan accepts credit cards and electronic funds transfer (EFT). There is a non-refundable $15 fee each semester you use the payment plan.

Your first payment is due when you sign up. After that, each month's payment is due by the 30th of the month. Since February has less than 30 days, February's payment is due on the last day of the month.
