Financial Information is available under Accounts and Billing on your Student Portal. Please check this link regularly to keep track of any due charges. If you wish to contest a late fee, we will respond to your request within 3-5 days and email you the resolution. You are responsible for paying the charges on your account. An electronic copy of your bill is available on the Student Portal and SallieMae each month you have charges due.



As an outgrowth of the University's commitment to the student's privacy and protection against identity theft, the Office of Student Business Services will no longer accept requests from the students to release financial information to a parent or third party. Students are encouraged to use the Student Portal to obtain information about current charges and activity. All financial activity posted to the statement is considered confidential. Financial records are subject to privacy protections governed by the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.


Important Fee Information

University fees are approved by the Regents and are subject to change. The amounts shown on your Statement of Accounts and Student Portal represent fees as currently approved for the specified term. The fee amounts billed for this period may be adjusted at a future date.

Fee amounts are subject to change without notice. Refer to the UCSC Office of the Registrar for the latest information on registration fee amounts. As you may have other debts to the university, your statement shows you the exact amount you have to pay, designated as “Amount Due,” to complete registration.












BILLS are available beginning May 29th and Due June 19th.
