Important Payment Information


For summer 2024 deadlines, please visit the Important Dates & Deadlines webpage.

Please note:

  • Any payment received after the payment deadline will be considered late and subject to a $20 late fee for each month past due.
  • Financial aid recipients with delayed disbursements will be held responsible for late fees unless the delay was a processing error by the Financial Aid office, verified by the Director of Financial Aid.
  • Payments for housing fees are made directly through CASHNet Smartpay. The Housing Office is not able to collect or process payments.
  • Late Move-In: If you need additional time to make your first payment, you may request a late move-in date. Late move-ins are offered up until (5) five days after the License Agreement's official start.

Yes, but it depends.

Financial Aid can be applied to your housing fees. Financial Aid packages will include a combination of different types of aid including, but not limited to grants, scholarships, Federal Student loans, Perkins loans, and Parent PLUS loans. You may also have other outside aid, such as scholarships, available to you that can be applied to your college expenses (see information on non-university scholarships). You should calculate all of your expenses, including tuition, fees, incidentals such as books, and housing costs to make the best decision in accepting the various types of financial aid that are being offered to you. Based on your need, you will then accept the Financial Aid online and be enrolled full-time for the aid to be disbursed to your account. Only Financial Aid that has been officially accepted by the student and cleared for disbursement by the campus will be released to your student account. Please keep in mind that housing fees are covered only after other fees have been satisfied. See below. Financial Aid will be applied to your student fees in the following order:

  • Tuition
  • Mandatory Campus Fees
  • Room (Room Rent)
  • Board (Meal Plan)
  • Housing Fees (Program Fee and Damage Deposits)

If Financial Aid does not cover the total balance due for the semester, the student will be responsible for paying the remaining balance by the stated deadline.

Notification of Financial Aid

The Cal State LA Center for Student Financial Aid and Scholarships will begin sending financial aid information to students at the end of March. Students are responsible for addressing all requirements on their “To Do List.” Be sure to view your “To Do List” on your MyCalStateLA portal to ensure your anticipated financial aid disbursement will be disbursed. Failure to complete your “To Do List” can delay a financial aid disbursement and delay housing payments, thereby resulting in late fees.

Scheduled Disbursement

Housing fees are paid only after Tuition and Fees have been paid. Each semester Financial Aid will pay tuition and fees first, then any balance from the disbursement will be applied to other Cal State LA charges such as housing room and board fees.

First-Time Borrowers

Students who have accepted a Federal Perkins Loan or Federal Direct Loan (subsidized or unsubsidized) must complete their “To Do List” including, but not limited to, the first-time borrowers' Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Loan Counseling. Please reference your MyCalStateLA student portal to ensure that your loans disburse. For questions about the Parent PLUS Loan Program, please contact the Center for Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Non-University Scholarships

Scholarships acquired from entities outside of the university are considered off-campus scholarships. Students who have off-campus scholarships must notify the Center for Student Financial Aid and Scholarships of any scholarship award(s) received, even if those awards will be sent directly to you. Please visit the Off-Campus Scholarship website page to access details on submitting information and where scholarship awards can be mailed to.
