Sponsor or Third Party Fee Payment

Policies and Procedures

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees.  All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular term has begun.  All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate.  Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).

The Following Information is Necessary for a Valid Authorization

  • The student is responsible for any portion of the tuition and other fees not covered by the Sponsor/Third Party.

  • Any changes or deletions to the authorization must be emailed in writing to Student Accounting & Cashiering Services immediately to , so the contract can be adjusted prior to the date the term begins.

After Census Date, an invoice of the outstanding charges will be mailed to the Sponsor/Third Party.

  • The full amount is due on the invoice due date (within 30 days). 

  • If the invoiced amount is not paid in a timely manner:

  • The contingent Sponsor/Third Party credit on the student’s account will be reversed, and student will be held responsible to pay this amount to Cal Poly Pomona at that time.

  • An automatic financial hold will be placed on the student’s account, which will prevent further services until fees are paid in full.

  • Check payments should be mailed to the address on the invoice, with a copy of the invoice for proper credit.
