2020-21 Fees Information
 

Payment Steps

  1. Make the initial payment in the housing application.
    The non-refundable $500 initial payment, required to secure housing, is the first step in the payment process.

    Financial Aid
    Students must have enough financial aid to pay for all of their tuition and housing to defer payment.

    Note! Using 2020-21 FAFSA or CA Dream application data, the Financial Aid Office has identified and the system has coded the students who qualify for deferment of the $500 initial housing payment. To be considered, you must have a 2020-21 Financial aid application on file.
     
  2. Pay the balance owed.

    Annual housing fees will be available after assignments have been posted. Due to the late release of campus housing assignments, the Sept. 1 due date has been extended to Sept. 15. Any past due balances after Sept. 15 may be subject to a financial hold and fees:

    1. 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).
    2. Pay entire annual balance by Sept. 15, 2020.
    3. Pay the quarterly balance by Sept 15, 2020.
    4. Pay the first monthly installment balance by Sept 15, 2020.

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 their Cal Poly portal.

2020-21 Housing Fees*

As shared rooms won’t be offered in fall, continuing students will be charged the single room rate. Because campus housing closes for winter break on Saturday, Nov. 21, housing fees will be prorated for the shorter stay. Winter break housing is a separate fee.

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.
