Fees and Debts Owed to the Institution

Should a student or former student fail to pay a fee or a debt owed to the institution, the institution may "withhold permission to register, to use facilities for which a fee is authorized to be charged, to receive services, materials, food or merchandise of any combination of the above from any person owing a debt" until the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Section 42380 and 42381).

Prospective students who register for courses offered by the university are obligated to pay fees associated with registration for those courses.  Failure to cancel registration in any course for an academic term prior to the first day of the academic term gives rise to an obligation to pay student fees, including any tuition for the reservation of space in the course.

The institution may withhold permission to register or other services offered by the institution from anyone owing fees or another debt to the institution.  If a person believes he or she does not owe all or part of an asserted unpaid obligation, that person may contact the Student Loan Services & Collections Office.  The Student Loan Services and Collections Office, or another office on campus to which the Cashier's Office may refer the person, will review all pertinent information provided by the person and available to the campus and advise the person of its conclusions.


Students who have tuition and fees obligations to the University will be billed.  Payment must be made by the due date printed on the billing statement accessible via GET student center. Students' failure to pay by the established deadline is cause for disenrollment from the current term and forfeiture of tuition and fees already made.  Students who are disenrolled may become ineligible to participate in a payment plan for two consecutive terms.  Disenrollment means the permanent loss of credit for classes taken for the term involved.

Dishonored Check / Credit Card Information

Any check, ACH electronic check, and/or credit card payment returned by the bank for any reason is considered a dishonored item. The University will send a notification of the returned item, which must be redeemed within ten days.

Checks for which a 'stop payment' has been placed on tuition and fees will result in immediate disenrollment for the term involved and a hold placed on the student's record pending payment of the services charge.

Students are required to pay the full amount of the original transaction (except on stop payments for tuition and fees) plus a $25.00 service charge for the first dishonored item and $35.00 for each subsequent item. A $20.00 service fee will be charged for dishonored credit card payments. Payment must be made by cash, money order, or cashiers' check only. Failure to pay for the dishonored item by the deadline date may result in disenrollment from the term involved or a hold being placed on the student's record.

Please contact the Cashier's Office if you have any questions.

Housing Billing

Students who are interested in the Housing facility may apply online during the open application period. Details and links to the License Agreement may be found on the Housing website. If you would like a tour of the facility, you may call the Housing office directly at (323) 343-4800 to make a reservation. The office is located in Phase II of the Housing complex located at 5300 Paseo Rancho Castilla.

All residents will be billed in advance for all charges each term.

Residents have four payment plans to choose from – annual (entire year paid in advance), once per semester, installment (twice per semester), and financial aid. Charges are placed in advance for the next semester. A $20.00 late fee will be assessed if payment is not received by the posted due date, and a hold will be placed on the student’s account. All Financial Aid students are charged for the next semester’s rent prior to the first Financial Aid disbursement. If Financial Aid does not cover the entire amount, a bill will be sent for the balance due. A hold will be placed if the balance is not paid by the due date.

All residents with an outstanding balance will be sent an email notification to their Cal State LA email address each month and may download the billing statement on their GET account. Students may pay online or obtain a housing deposit slip from the Housing Office before making a payment at the Cashier's Office.

For information regarding Housing charges, please contact the Cashier's Office.

Sponsored Billings

If you have a company or organization that would like to be billed directly for your tuition and fees, please submit an authorization letter to the Cashier's Office Student Services Building, Room #2380.  A third-party sponsor agreement or authorization letter of services must be received prior to registering for classes and no later than the census date.  You may email the agreement to Cory Evans or fax (323) 343-6491.  Please note: If your sponsor does not pay some or all of your tuition and fees, it will be your responsibility to pay for the outstanding balance, and a financial hold may be placed on your account.  For questions, please contact the Cashier's Office at (323) 343-3630.

Information needed on the authorization letter:

Student's full name
Period covered
Maximum amount of coverage
Types of tuition and fees charges covered or not covered
Sponsor billing address
Contact person, phone number, and email address

Military Tuition Assistance

To obtain federal military tuition assistance, you need to visit your installation's education office in order to receive college counseling and develop an education plan.  Students planning to use military tuition assistance benefits will need to contact the Cashier's Office prior to registering for classes.
