Once you enroll in a payment plan, changes to your academic load, subsequent fee increases, or new charges may affect the amount of your payments, which are not necessarily distributed evenly. It is your responsibility to check your account for any such changes. 

The payment plan does not cover some fees, such as library fines or course fees from a previous term. These fees will need to be paid prior to enrollment in a payment plan. If the student is not eligible, a student's account will not allow them to enroll. 

It is the student's responsibility to check their MyCSULB account to ensure the payment plan is successfully enrolled, and to verify due dates. Enrollment in a payment plan is available through the CPIE registration windows in the Foundation Building.

If your balance becomes delinquent, you may be placed with an outside collection agency. You will be responsible for any additional fees. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit reporting agency if you fail to resolve this matter immediately.  In addition to canceling your registration requests, the university can authorize the California Franchise Tax Board to deduct your debt from any future state income tax refunds.

If you have additional questions, please contact the CPIE Student Services Center at cpie-info@csulb.edu.
