Check the BILLING SCHEDULE for a list of scheduled billing dates. Each student has a financial statement of account with UC Santa Cruz. A statement of account is produced each month there is financial activity on an account and an unpaid balance over $5. Activities include items such as registration and housing fees, health insurance and health center charges, library charges, special class fees (posted to the account the third week of the quarter), financial aid credits/adjustments, cash payments, or adjustments to charges. Included with the statement are instructions for making payments, contesting charges, and making inquiries. Unpaid charges appear on subsequent statements as "Balance Forward."
Please contact the originating unit for questions about specific charges. Contact us with any questions regarding account activities. Originating departments (e.g. the library for library processing fees) may also be contacted regarding charges or adjustments.
