3. Optional State University Fees and Non-Resident Installment Payment Plans:

(Note: These plans are not available for Summer semester.)

A.

State University Fee Installment Payment Plan: To be eligible for this program, a student must have all obligations paid. Sponsored students and students eligible for financial aid (including Direct Student Loans) are not eligible to utilize the State University Fee Installment Payment Plan. The following terms and conditions apply to the State University Fee Installment Payment Plan:

1.

The State University Fee plan requires that fees are paid in three installments. The first installement is paid at the time of registration and represents 1/3 of the State University Fee plus the $231.50 of miscellaneous fees (IRA, ASI, Facilities, University Union, Health Fee and Hornet Newspaper Fee) and a one-time $33.00 non-refundable adminstrative fee.

The first installment payment will be:

Current Amount

Undergraduates

Graduates

0-6 Units

$464.50

$484.50

More than 6 Units

$607.50

$642.50

The first installment is due in the Student Financial Services Center (either by mail or in the Student Financial Services Center drop box) at least five business days (excluding holidays) before your scheduled telephone date to register. The Fee Statement form in the Invitation to Register, must be signed and returned with your check or money order. The last day to sign up on the plan is September 5, 2003 for Fall 2003 and January 30, 2004 for Spring 2004. The second installment will reflect half of the balance due at the time the statement is generated. The third installment will reflect the balance of unpaid fees.

The remaining two installments will be due as follows:

Fall 2003 October 3 and November 3

Spring 2004 March 1 and April 1

A statement will be mailed to the address you have listed with the Registrar’s Office. If you do not receive a statement, it is still your responsibility to pay on the due dates.

2.

Students who wish to make advance payments prior to receiving a statement may do so at the Student Financial Services Center. However, you will still receive a statement as scheduled, but the amount will be reduced.

3.

If you have paid for the full-time installment fee plan, but only received six or less units through CASPER, the excess amount paid will be applied to the balance still due for part-time installment fees.

By signing the last line of the Fee Statement form, or authorizing your credit card payment by phone, for the State University Fee Installment Payment Plan, you promise to pay to California State University, Sacramento, the full fee amount (including any and all fee increases) by the due dates. This promise is given in consideration for enrollment in the academic term for which these installment payments apply. If you fail to make any installment payment by the date specified, or your check is not honored by your bank, you will be subject to: (1) a late fee of $10.00, (2) disenrollment for the academic term, (3) the University withholding any of its services from you, (4) denial of access to future installment plans, (5) forfeit all fees paid to date, (6) $20.00 returned check fee and $25.00 late fee if applicable or (7) any reasonable cost related to collecting this debt.

B.

Non-Resident Tuition Installment Payment Plan:

1.

The Education Code allows a non-resident student to pay the required non-resident tuition fee on an installment basis; limited to three equal installment payments. A 15% handling fee will be assessed on the total non-resident amount.

2.

Non-resident students who wish to use the tuition installment plan must go to Student Financial Services Center in LSN-1001, 278-6736, with your Fee Statement form, to sign the appropriate agreement no later than five business days (excluding holidays) prior to your scheduled telephone date to register. At that time you will be required to pay resident registration fees. Non-resident students may utilize both the State University Fee and the Non-Resident Tuition Installment Payment Plans.

3.

A $10.00 late fee will be assessed for each late payment.

4.

Non-payment of fees may result in disenrollment or legal action taken against you. Students who are disenrolled for non-payment, forfeit all fees paid to date and will be denied access to future installment payment plans.

5.

Students who wish to make advance payments must go to Student Financial Services Center in LSN-1001.

C.

Students classified as non-residents who are authorized a waiver of the non-resident tuition fee, must go in person to the Residence Screening Office, Lassen Hall, and request that their Invitation to Register and Fee Statement form be approved by the Residence Screening Clerk for the waiver of non-resident tuition fee. This approval must be obtained and placed on the Fee Statement form before the registration fee payment can be accepted by the University.

   

D.

Non-Resident Tuition Cap. The total non-resident tuition fee charged a student in an academic year (Fall & Spring semesters only) shall not exceed $8,460 or 30 units. The total fee paid per term shall be determined by multiplying the number of units taken by the charge per unit in accordance with the current semester's fee charge of $282 per unit.

2) notification to your instructors that you are subject to disenrollment;

3) disenrollment from classes or legal collection action; and

4) you will be liable for additional costs if legal action becomes necessary.

6. DISENROLLMENT:  

Disenrollment from the University will occur for the following reasons:

1) dishonored checks for registration fees not cleared within the allowed time frame; or

2) registration fees not paid in full by the invoice date or the allowed time frame.

If you are disenrolled, you will forfeit your fees paid to date and the Registrar will drop you from all your classes. As a result, you may lose your continuing student status for the following semester.
