Registration fees for summer 2009 are due April 13 - 27, 2009. Check your "My Registration Info" for your specific due date.

  • It is recommended that your payment be made by your due date to avoid any delay in registration. You may make your payment beginning April 6, 2009.
  • Do NOT wait until your registration access date to pay your fees unless making payment using our online methods (electronic check or credit card). In person payments will only be accepted via the Cashiers Office drop box.

Electronic Check (ACH)

You may pay your registration fees, out-of-state or foreign tuition, and other charges using the ACH payment option. This is just like writing a check, but you will make the payment online. There is no additional charge for this option.

Credit Card

Students are able to use MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Card to pay their registration fees and out-of-state tuition using CASHNet™ SmartPay, our secure third party vendor. The University Cashiers Office does not accept credit cards for payment of registration fees or tuition (foreign or out-of-state), except as applicable under the terms of the Installment Plan.

  • Use CASHNet SmartPay via the Web from your student account. Effective with the summer 2009 session, you will be asked to select what you would like to pay for first, then select how you would like to pay. At this point, you would select payment by credit card.

Payments made via CASHNet SmartPay are received by the University Cashiers Office no later than the next business day, so the registration process is not delayed. CASHNet SmartPay assesses each customer a service charge based on the transaction amount. See the Web site for more details.

MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover Card charge cards are accepted for other payments, such as Housing, Parking, Health Service, Continuing Education, and miscellaneous over-the-counter payments. Students are reminded that banks will provide cash advances against credit cards if needed to cover registration payments. Most ATM cards are also accepted for payment of miscellaneous charges.

Check

Fees may be paid in full by personal check, money order, or certified funds. Checks should be made payable to SDSU. In order to have fees processed on time, print the fee payment coupon found in the SDSU WebPortal and submit it (via mail or Cashiers drop box) with your payment prior to your registration fee payment deadline. It is recommended that your payment be sent as soon as possible to avoid any delay in registration.

Check your "My Registration Info" for your due date.

Checks are accepted for the exact amount of the payment. Overpayments of $10.00 or less are refunded only upon request. If your check for registration fees or tuition is returned by the bank to the University Collections Office for any reason, your registration may be cancelled and you will be billed a $35.00 dishonored payment charge and a $20.00 late fee.

The university reserves the right to refuse payments by personal check from those individuals who have previously had items returned unpaid by their bank. Refunds may be applied against other amounts due the university.

Financial Aid Deferment (Postponement of Payment)

The "My Registration Info" online service will tell you if you are eligible to postpone payment of your registration fee (and tuition, if applicable). To find out how to become eligible to postpone payment, access your financial aid information via AidLink at the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships Web site. Once in AidLink, select the summer tab and follow the instructions.

DO NOT WAIT until your registration access date. Log in to AidLink now to review your options and the action you need to take to become eligible for a financial aid deferment.

Your registration fee (and tuition, if applicable) will be deducted from your financial aid available for the summer session. If you do not qualify for enough financial aid, or if your financial aid award is reduced or becomes unavailable FOR ANY REASON, you must pay your fees IN FULL by August 12, 2009.

Installment Plan

Third Party Billing/Approved Fee Waivers

If an outside agency (agency, government program, Employee Fee Waiver, etc.) is paying all or part of your registration fee, you will need to print your fee payment coupon from "My Registration Info" and return it and a copy of your authorization letter to the University Cashiers Office. Failure to do so will result in your fees being deducted from your financial aid award. Students submitting authorization to bill a third party for their fees will be held responsible for the payment if the third party agency fails to pay the fees within the semester of attendance.
