Installment Payment Plans (IPP)

The University offers various installment payment plans for the fall and spring term which will cover tuition and/or campus-based fees, or nonresident tuition.

Tuition Fee Payment Plan - Non-Financial Aid Recipients

This plan allows for the Tuition fee to be paid in three payments. A non-refundable $33 administrative fee is required. The first payment is due at the Cashier’s Office by January 6, 2014. The 2nd and 3rd payments are due March 2nd and April 2nd respectively.

Tuition Only Payment Plan - Financial Aid Recipients

This plan allows for the Tuition only to be paid in three payments. This plan is intended for students who are receiving at least $834 or more in financial aid. The tuition fee will be deferred into three (3) equal payments due February 1st, March 1st and April 1st respectively leaving the campus based fees of $834 in total on the student’s account until their financial aid disbursement. No initial payment is required but there must be sufficient aid to pay all campus based fees. A non-refundable $33 administrative fee will be applied equally to all installments.

Campus Based Fees Only Payment Plan - Financial Aid Recipients

This plan is available to students receiving a State University Grant (SUG) or a Cal Grant. This plan allows for campus based fees to be paid in two (2) payments. A non-refundable $33 administrative fee will be applied equally to all installments. Payments are due on February 1st and March 1st.

To take advantage of these installment plans, students can contact Student Financial Services at (707) 826-6789 to obtain and execute an agreement or download a copy of the agreement from below. Agreements must be executed prior to the fee payment deadline at the SFS Cashier’s Office on the 2nd floor of the SBS Building. The terms of this agreement is superseded by disbursement of any financial aid. A $30 late payment fee will be assessed for each installment paid after the due date.

As with any fee payment deadline, failure to pay as agreed subjects the student to a late payment fee, a hold placed on the student account, and collection action. Collection action includes collection agency referral and/or small claims court, where the student will be responsible for all applicable collection and/or court costs.

 

Nonresident Tuition Payment Plan

The Education Code allows a non-resident student to pay the required non-resident tuition on an installment basis; limited to three equal payments. A 15% administrative fee will be assessed to the total non-resident fee amount. All campus based fees, tuition and course fees must be paid prior to executing this agreement.

Non-resident students who wish to use the tuition installment plan must go to the SFS–Cashiers Office in the SBS Building Room 285 to sign an agreement. At that time you will be required to pay registration and tuition fees in full.

 

Deadlines

Deadlines for payment of tuition fees are as follows:

Deadlines for Spring Term 2014
Spring Term 2014 Payment Deadline
If registered by January 6, 2014 Monday, January 6, 2014
If registered after January 6, 2014 Fees due within 72 hours

Failure to pay all outstanding tuition and fees by the due date will result in cancellation of your classes.

You will not be cancelled if you have sufficient financial aid to cover ALL your term fees.

OR:

You have submitted one of the following documents to Student Financial Services:

  • HSU installment plan agreement
  • Fee waiver authorization
  • Third party authorization

It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all forms have been submitted to the appropriate office prior to the fee deadline.

Refunds

A student who withdraws from the university, drops to a lower fee category or has a campus fee or fine reversed on their student account, may be eligible for a refund. To obtain a refund, submit the “Request for Refund” form to Student Financial Services-Cashier’s Office. Refunds will be processed within 14 days.

If you received a State University Grant or a Cal Grant that paid your tuition fee, you are not eligible for a refund.

The following are the deadlines for Spring Term 2014

Schedule Adjustments

Students who change their unit load to a lower fee category, e.g., nonresident students who drop units or resident students who drop from full time to part time, must do so on or before February 17, 2014 in order to receive a refund, less a $27 administrative charge. No refunds will be given for units dropped after this date. Note: units added after this date are charged at regular rates.

Withdraw from the University

To receive a full refund of fees, less a $27 administrative charge, students must withdraw from all classes by January 20, 2014.

Students who withdraw from the university or drop all registered units on or after the first day of instruction and before the 60% point in the semester, April 1, 2014, will receive an automatic refund of a portion of their fees, less a $27 administrative charge. The refund will be prorated based on the number of calendar days that the student was enrolled and the total number of days in the semester.

NOTE: It is the student's responsibility to properly withdraw from the university if they do not plan to attend. Non attendance does not relieve students of any debt incurred due to registration activity. Students that withdraw from the university will owe the $27 administrative fee, and may also owe any non-refundable fees already assessed to their account plus registration and tuition fees, which are calculated based on their withdrawal date.

In cases where student are withdrawing from a prior term they will be required to submit a Petition of Tuition and Fees in order to have their tuition and fees adjusted. This petition cannot be submitted until a withdrawal has been approved by the Office of the Registrar.

The refund will be automatically calculated and a refund check will be mailed to the student’s current mailing address. Students enrolled in Direct Deposit, will have their refunds deposited to their bank account. See the Student Electronic Funds Transfer page to sign up for direct deposit. Please Note: If payment was made by credit card, the refund will be credited to the credit card used to process the payment.

Financial aid recipients should contact Student Financial Services regarding fee refunds. Generally, fees paid by financial aid are refunded to the financial aid program.

Third Party Sponsorship

Student Financial Services (SFS) will defer payment for sponsored students and will bill an external agency for registration fees, non-resident tuition, and course fees. SFS has the right to refuse an authorization to bill an agency or deferment of fee payment for a student pending receipt of payment from a third party sponsor, due to previous refusal to pay, extended collection efforts, or other reasons.

Sponsored students must submit an authorization to bill, letter of sponsorship, purchase order, etc. to Student Financial Services by the registration fee payment deadline for each semester. Failure to submit the authorization by the fee payment deadline may result in a late fee being added to the student’s account or disenrollment for non-payment. If a late fee is added, it cannot be billed to the agency, but must be paid by the student.

Agencies are invoiced immediately following the add/drop period (fourth week of classes). Students should be enrolled in all classes for the semester at the end of the add/drop period and are financially responsible for any fees charged to their account due to added classes, etc., after the agency bill has been mailed. In the event an agency has not paid all fees by the tenth week of any semester, the student becomes responsible for those charges and is not able to enroll in classes for a new semester until previous semester charges are paid in full by either the agency or the student.
