Payment Plans

Effective Fall 2015

CSU San Marcos is offering students and families an interest free, monthly installment payment plan. These plans are only available for the Fall and Spring terms each year.

There is a non-refundable $25.00 cost, per term, to enroll in the payment plan and, if paying with credit card a convenience fee will apply.

This tuition payment plan breaks down into 4 payments the state tuition, state class/course fees, extended learning course fees and non-resident tuition.  It does not breakdown the mandatory campus fees and $25 fee which is due in the first installment.  Neither parking nor campus housing are eligible for the payment plan.

Once enrolled in classes, please follow the steps below:

HOW TO ENROLL   Registration for the payment plan is only available through MyCSUSM . Login, CLICK student center, under finances CLICK "other financial" then  CLICK "enroll in payment plan".  Agree to all of the conditions of the payment plan and follow all the "next" prompts until fully enrolled in the plan.

After enrolling, if you want to see the amounts due by date, CLICK "Account Inquiry" and select "Charges Due".  This will provide you a detailed listing by date of what is due.  For example, for Spring 2016, there will be a breakdown for each installment; December 17, 2015, January 17, February 17 and March 17, 2016.

The first installment plus mandatory campus fees and the $25 non-refundable per semester payment plan service fee are due prior to the published fee payment deadlines in order to avoid disenrollment.

*If the first installment payment is not received by the payment deadline YOU WILL BE DROPPED FROM ALL OF YOUR CLASSES.

If you miss any payment after the first installment, you will not be dropped from classes, but will be charged a monthly late payment plan fee of $15 up to a maximum of $30 and a hold will be placed on your account.

A student defaulting on the payment of an installment agreement for any semester is not eligible to participate in the program again until all outstanding balances owed are paid in full.

Payment for fees that are returned by your bank for any reason will result in penalty charges and may result in disenrollment from classes.
