Billing and Payment

Each student has a university billing account with UC Santa Cruz and a billing statement is generated each month there are charges due on your account. You can review your billing statement and account activity online through the Student Portal ( If your parent/guardian will be paying your housing charges, you can grant them access to your billing statements and give them the ability to make payments on your behalf.

The Campus Housing Office offers two types of billing options for your housing charges. Both billing options require you to make payments within each quarter’s payment deadlines. You have the option of paying your housing fees in one payment at the beginning of each quarter, or having your quarterly housing charges divided into monthly installments. Monthly payments represent one-third of the total quarterly charge. Unless a payment plan is requested, housing charges are billed and full payment is due on a quarterly basis.

Payment Plan Application Process

To apply for a monthly payment plan simply check the “Monthly” billing option on your Student Housing Online application. If you prefer to pay your fees in one quarterly sum, check the “Quarterly” billing option.

Students who would like to request a personalized payment plan, tailored to meet your individual needs—delays in financial aid disbursement, your employment pay schedule, etc.—should contact the Campus Housing Office before the first payment deadline of each quarter to make payment arrangements.

Students and their family have the option of setting up payment plans. Contact your campus housing adviser for more information:
