Fees/Tuition Payment Deadline

All in-person payments to the Main Cashiers Office are due by 3 pm PST.  Payments may be made via GROWL or check/money order left in the drop box until 4 pm.  (Drop box is located on the outside of the Student Services Building.)

Fees/Tuition for Fall 2014 will be assessed on your August 2014 Statement of Account and are due in the Main Cashiers Office by 3:00PM (in person) or by 4:00PM (via online or check/money order in drop box) on September 15, 2014 to avoid being dropped from classes and being assessed a $50 late registration fee.

Students who pay by mail should mail payments by September 1 to ensure arrival by the September 15 deadline. Postmarks are not considered. Your payment must be either physically or electronically received by the Main Cashiers Office by 3:00PM (in person) or 4:00PM (via online or check/money order in drop box) on September 15, 2014.


Statement of Account

Access your statement and current account activity online at GROWL.

The monthly Statement of Account includes all fees and applicable tuition, other campus charges, credits for payments, waivers, and refunds or direct deposit transfers. Students receiving financial aid must enroll in classes (6 units minimum for student loan disbursements) before financial aid funds can be electronically disbursed to offset charges on the statement. Payment for the amount due from the student plus any waiver or deferment must equal the amount due on the Statement of Account.

Credit Cards American Express, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards are accepted for payment to student accounts via the Web (Visa cards are not accepted). A nonrefundable convenience fee is assessed for using this payment method. The Cashiers Office is not able to take any credit card payments at its counter or via telephone. Check your student account at GROWL to make a credit card payment.

eCheck is accepted for payment to student accounts via the Web (US accounts only).  A nonrefundable convenience fee is assessed for using this payment method.  The Cashiers Office is not able to take any eCheck payments at its counter, or via telephone.  Check your student account at GROWL to make an eCheck payment.  eChecks returned due to insufficient funds or other reasons will be subject to the same $20 returned check fee assessed on paper checks.  Please direct questions regarding this payment option to eCheckfeedback@ucr.edu.

Late Fees Fees/tuition not paid in full by the "Payment Deadline" will result in a registration late fee of $50 and loss of classes. Housing payments received after the payment deadline will incur a $30 late fee or the amount specified in your lease agreement. Student Business Services will also assess a $12.50 late payment fee each month to accounts not paid by the deadline date indicated on the Statement of Account.

Payments All in-person payments to the Main Cashiers Office are due by 3 pm PST.  Payments may be made via GROWL or check/money order left in the drop box until 4 pm.  (Drop box is located on the outside of the Student Services Building.)


Refunds

If you paid your account by using a credit card, any refunds will be credited back to the same credit card used.

If you paid by check, eCheck, cash or money order, you will receive a refund in the form of a check. If you signed up for direct deposit, this refund will be deposited directly to your bank account. If you did not sign up for direct deposit, you will receive a check, which will be mailed to your local address on file.

Cashiers will NOT accept payments over the amount that is currently owed. Therefore, please ONLY send payments for the balance due.



To ensure DIRECT DEPOSIT is effective for the first disbursement, your bank account information must be submitted three weeks prior to the start of the quarter. Please submit by September 12, 2014 for the Fall 2014 quarter. Any authorization forms submitted after that date will not be in effect for the first quarterly disbursement.

To enroll in Direct Deposit, please refer to our Direct Deposit section.

*Direct deposits for the Fall 2014 quarter should be disbursed into bank accounts beginning September 29, 2014...provided all requirements have been met.

 

Please be advised beginning on January 17, 2013, direct deposit banking information in GROWL will automatically update the UCR payroll system for student employees and Federal Work-Study recipients. All future paychecks will be electronically deposited into the designated account.

What I need to do? Review your bank information on GROWL (select the Direct Deposit option on left under Student Business Services/Cashiers) to ensure the accuracy of banking information by January 10th to ensure the appropriate data is passed on the payroll system. If corrections are needed, updates can be made directly in GROWL;
please note that it may take up to 10 business days for changes made in GROWL to be reflected in the payroll system.

What if I am already signed up for direct deposit in the UCR Payroll? If you are already enrolled in direct deposit on UCR Payroll, then no action is required. We will only send bank information from GROWL to UCR Payroll for student employees and Federal Work-Study recipients not currently enrolled in direct deposit for paychecks.

What should I do if I do not want my payroll check deposited to the same account as designated on GROWL? Go to GROWL (select the Direct Deposit option on the left under Student Business Services/Cashiers) and check the box to prevent your bank information from being sent to the payroll system by January 16, 2013.

Why is this change occurring? This change is necessary to prepare for the more frequent payments associated with the bi-weekly payroll cycles that will be implemented for most student employees. Electronic deposits are more sustainable and efficient than paper checks; will cut down on lines to pick up Federal Work-Study checks; and should eliminate lost and stolen checks.

Questions regarding this change should be directed to
sbsofc@ucr.edu or 951-827-3204.



Just a reminder for those of you on the Deferred Payment Plan, your payment MUST be received by 4:00PM in the Main Cashiers Office to avoid a late fee.
