Explanation of CSU San Marcos Fees

All correspondence from Cashier's will be sent to your campus email, please check it regularly for important information and updates. 

Important facts to remember:

  • You may make payments through your Student Center; please note there are no convenience fees for e-checks.
  • Student Accounts must be paid in full by the fee payment deadline (in MyCSUSM, click on the term you wish to view then "fees and charges").
  • In Fall and Spring terms you may be DROPPED from ALL of your classes (even if a partial payment has been made), unless you are exempt. For winter and summer please see the Extended Learning (EL) website.
    • Only on-time payment or timely dropping of all classes, prior to the 1st day of the term, will exempt students from a debt to the University.
  • Refund Information:
    • You are eligible for a refund if you drop from full time to part time during the add/drop period. For Extended Learning (EL) classes please see the EL Website.
    • If you drop from full time to part time after the add/drop period, you are not eligible for a refund of the difference of fees. For Extended Learning (EL) classes please see the EL website
    • If you drop all classes after the 1st day of the term, you are eligible for a pro-rated refund up to the 60% period of the term. For Extended Learning (EL) classes please see the EL website.
  • Any unpaid balances that remain at the add/drop deadline (typically 30 days from fees due-date), will be considered past-due. Past-due accounts will result in a financial hold which will prevent any new registration or the ability to obtain university services such as transcripts. Additionally, past-due accounts are subject to late fees.
  • Please remember CSUSM offers several payment methods.
  • You are responsible to check your campus email and your student service account regularly for fee increase and updates to your account.
