Payment Steps

Make the non-refundable initial payment when you apply for housing, then pay the balance owed, either in full or in installments:

  1. Make the Initial Payment in the Housing Application.
    The non-refundable initial payment of $500, required to secure housing, is part of the application process. You will pay it in the Housing Application.

    Note! The Financial Aid Office identifies students that qualify for deferment of the initial housing payment using 2021-22 FAFSA or CA Dream application data. The housing application automatically bypasses the payment step for qualifying students. To be considered, you must have a 2021-22 Financial aid application on file.
  2. Pay the Balance Owed - 
    Annual housing fees will be available after assignments have been posted. The first installment is due on Sept. 1, 2021. There are four options for paying your balance:
    • Defer payment of Housing and Dining charges to be paid by financial aid (only if the student has accepted sufficient financial aid to pay for all Registration, Housing, and Dining fees).
    • Pay entire annual balance by Sept. 1, 2021
    • Pay the quarterly balance by Sept. 1, 2021
    • Pay the first monthly installment balance by Sept. 1, 2021

Students must, at minimum, pay the first monthly installment amount unless that payment is “Deferred by Financial Aid,” as indicated on the Money Matters tab of the Cal Poly Portal.

Note from Student Accounts: The quarterly housing charges will be split up into three monthly installment amounts with monthly due dates. Students may pay more than the minimum monthly installment amount. There are no penalties for paying off balances ahead of schedule. If a student prefers not to make monthly payments, they have the option to pay the full quarterly amount or even the annual amount.

At minimum, the monthly installment amount must be made by the set due date to avoid any holds that may be placed on the account.

All payments should be made using Cal Poly’s CASHNet payment portal or submitted (via mail or in-person) to the University Cashier’s Office. Payments received after 5 p.m. are posted the following business day.

For any questions regarding charges and payments please visit the Student Accounts webpage or contact them at 805-756-1428.
