Paying Tuition

Tuition is due on the first day of each quarter. However, we recommend that you pay your tuition before the first day of the quarter, to avoid long lines in Cashiering area and any banking delays which could end up costing you extra money. A $95.00 late fee will be added to your account if tuition is unpaid by 5:00 pm on the first day of the quarter.

Transferring to University in Fall 2010? Please Read!

If you plan to apply to any university check the online application requirements and begin preparing your documents right away. Many CA schools have an application deadline of Nov 30th. Now is the time to collect your financial statement, high school transcript as well as any required immunization records. This will be easier to do if you will be returning home, or while you are having a break.
