Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)

The TIPP gives students the opportunity to break up their Tuition Fees (State fees) or Non-Resident Tuition Fee (Out-of-State fees) in monthly installments. For California residents, this payment plan will divide tuition, campus fees, and professional program fees (if applicable). The payment plan does not include the Student Involvement Representation Fee (SIRF) and online distance fees, which have a separate payment deadline. See the list of all student fees for more information. 

Financial Aid Recipients: You may be responsible for an out-of-pocket payment if your financial aid is insufficient to pay the amount due or not disbursed before the payment deadline. 

Check the Student Homepage to see if the Anticipated Financial Aid award is sufficient to cover the due charges. 

Spring 2022 Payment Plan: Last day to enroll in the spring payment plan is February 7th.
Enroll online through your Student Homepage. There are no payment plans for Winter 2022.
