Student Fees

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).

Tuition and Charges

Students can view e-Bills and pay fees, tuition and charges online through CASHNet®.

Students will receive an email message from studentaccounts@csum.edu when new statements are available to view.

If you would like a parent or other responsible party to receive notices, you can setup a login for them on the "Your Account" page under "Parent PINs". Be sure to include their email address and check the box that allows them to receive billing notifications. When a statement is ready to view, each of you will receive an email notification.

When to Pay?

The fee due date for each semester will be posted in advance on the website.  You are responsible for confirming your enrollment by remitting your payment by the due date. A hold will be placed on your account to prevent further enrollment activity and your meal card can be temporarily inactivated until payment is made. You may be subject to Enrollment Cancellation if fees are not paid or otherwise resolved by the fee due date. Thank you for keeping your account current!

What to Pay?

Cal Maritime does not mail fee statements. To view your E-Bill statement, access My Statement - you'll need your 9-digit CMA Student ID number and the last four digits of your social security number. If you do not have a social security number, your password is the MMDD of your birth. Select "Your Account" from the top navigation bar and then select "Your Bills".

If you are receiving financial aid, you are responsible for following up with the Financial Aid Office to ensure all your Financial Aid documents are completed so that your award is ready to apply to your account by the fee due date. A late fee may be charged if your accepted aid does not disburse by the end of the second week of classes.

If you have any questions about your statement or need more information about setting up a login for another party, please contact us at StudentAccounts@csum.edu or visit us at the Cashier's Office.

What if I haven't completed registration?

  • Total account balance is due on or before the published due date and includes registration fees, tuition and charges for housing and meal plans.
  • Pay fees or pay the difference between accepted financial aid and total account balance.
  • If accepted financial aid is sufficient to pay fees, no payment is required. 
  • Billing statements will not be mailed.
  • Check your portal account summary to determine amount of fees due.
  • Failure to pay fees in full, have sufficient accepted financial aid or have an approved Installment Payment plan in place will result in a $25 late fee being assessed, the inability to add classes during the open registration period, and your classes may be dropped for non-payment of fees.  A $100 late registration fee will be assessed for those students re-enrolling.

If your disbursement amount is greater than your fees, tuition and charges, the balance will be refunded to you either by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), which permits delivery of your aid directly to your checking/savings account, or a paper check that is mailed to you.

How to Pay?  

♦ Electronic Payment Options

E-Check There is no additional charge to use this payment option. Please review the information carefully on the checkout page to prevent a dishonored payment. Should your E-Check payment be returned for any reason, including an erroneously entered account number, you will be charged a $25.00 administrative fee for the returned payment. A hold will be placed on your student account, preventing further enrollment activity.  If the payment is dishonored because of non-sufficient funds, repayment must be made by certified check, credit card or cash. Repayment by personal check or E-Check may not be accepted.
