The Installment Payment Plan (IPP) assists students in meeting the cost of their higher education by offering a convenient no-interest payment option.

The university administered IPP distributes the cost of the tuition, fees, housing and dining charges for a semester into three equal installments.


Fall and Spring semesters ONLY.

All undergraduate students attending the university with current charges of $400 or greater after financial aid, are eligible to participate.  All prior semester balances must be paid in full to be eligible.

Students enrolled through Open University or in the Graduate program through Extended Learning are not eligible for the installment payment plan.


Students receiving financial aid must deduct the amount of their aid to determine the net total due.  If it is $400 or greater, the remaining amount may be paid by installments.

Cost of plan

There is a $50 nonrefundable administrative fee payable with the first installment for each semester a plan is activated.  Interest is not assessed on the outstanding balance.


To participate in the IPP, a payment of one-third (1/3) of the balance due plus the $50 administrative fee is required.  In addition, during the enrollment period, students must complete the Installment Payment Plan application form.  Both the initial payment and completion of the application form (including student signature) are required in order for the student to participate in the IPP.  A new plan is required for each semester.

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).
