Upcoming Fee Deadlines

Important message for students with outstanding balances for Spring '20

We understand that with the growing challenges associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) it may be difficult to make a payment at this time. With that in mind, and until further notice, CSUSM will allow students with a past-due balance to register for Summer or Fall '20 classes, as well as waive related late fees.

Please know that Student Financial Services is here to help, and plans to be flexible in setting up repayment arrangements. If you are currently unable to make a payment, we urge you to contact us, at your convenience, to discuss a strategy for repayment.

If you have questions about your account, we can help. While Cougar Central and the Cashier's Office is currently closed to the public, we are available by email at and will return calls to 760-750-4490 as quickly as possible.

Important Fees & Deadlines Information

​Payments must be received no later than 5:00 pm if paying in-person at Student Financial Services, or 11:30 pm if paying online.

​If all mandatory campus fees and tuition are not paid in full by the due date, you risk having all of your classes dropped.

If after making the full payment, additional registration occurs that increases your fees (changing from part-time tuition rate to full-time tuition rate for example), the additional fees will be due according to the same due dates listed above.

​Only students who drop all of their classes prior to the first day of the term, will be guaranteed non-enrollment. In order to avoid a debt to the university, students must drop all courses prior to the first day of the term (August 26th, 2019).

Please Note: The fee structure and drop/refund policies associated with Extended Learning (EL) may have a different fee structure and drop/refund policy.

While Student Financial Services will send communications that include fee deadline reminders, it is the sole responsibility of each student to pay all fees by the stated deadlines listed above.
