Credit Card Convenience Fee

CSUSM Extended Learning is committed to its mission of providing a quality education for students, and to maximizing available resources to support academic programming.

We continue to offer you the option to pay by credit card. However, as the costs associated with processing credit card payments continue to grow, Extended Learning is unable to continue absorbing those fees.

Effective September 2016, all Extended Learning credit card transactions will be charged a convenience fee of 2.75%. Please note that the convenience fee is subject to change and is nonrefundable.

As a campus we have contracted with CASHNet, a third party company, to provide credit card processing services for all student accounts. This partnership helps keep overall costs low and allows us to continue to provide the convenience of credit card payments. We also continue to offer a free payment option through online e-check payments.

We hope this page will answer many of the questions you may have. For more information, please click on the questions and see the answers below:
