STUDENT FEES

 

All fees are accurate as of date published and are subject to change without notice.

PAYMENT OF REGISTRATION FEES

Registration at UC Merced is a two-step process: (1) enrollment in classes and (2) payment of fees. You must enroll first so that your fees can be assessed.  A failure to pay fees in full by the fee payment deadline will result in you being dropped from courses for non-payment. Additionally, a $50 late payment fee will be assessed and a hold will be placed on your account, limiting your access to University services.

Visit the Office of the Registrar's website for the list of fees or questions.

You will be able to view outstanding charges on your account at the MyBill web site; click on Student Options, and then select Current Charges. Fees are due and payable by the published deadline regardless of billing statement availability.

Your account balance will list credits and charges. Credits include all payments as well as financial aid disbursements. Charges include registration fees, housing charges, and other campus based fees. If you receive financial aid the funds disbursed through UC Merced will be applied to allowable charges on your account. Disbursed financial aid, less allowable charges, will be refunded to you via check or electronic funds transfer. You are responsible for the payment of any charges not covered by your financial aid.

DEADLINES AND PENALTY FINES

You must pay all past due balances prior to registration. An additional charge will be assessed for failure to pay required fees or deposits by the deadline. If you enroll in courses after the enrollment deadline, you will be assessed a late enrollment fee. Please note that all fees are due at the time assessed.

RETURNED ITEM POLICY 

Campus Cashiering Services at UC Merced accepts personal checks as well as cash payments. Any individual who writes a check with insufficient funds will be subject to all legal action deemed appropriate by the university, and will be assessed a fee of $20.00 per returned item. More than one violation can lead to revocation of check writing privileges.
