Students with Dietary Restrictions

If a student has dietary restrictions due to medically documented food allergies, food intolerances, and other dietary concerns, please read the following information regarding your dining plan requirements.

Payment Methods

Financial Aid:

The student can elect Financial Aid for the initial payment if the student expects to accept enough Financial Aid to cover the total amount of registration and tuition, housing and dining plan fees. The student will then indicate that Financial Aid will be making the payment(s) for the housing and dining plan fees in the appropriate box on the License Signature Page. Financial Aid can include certain types of student loans and grants, excluding Federal Work-Study or general scholarships.

If payment by Financial Aid is elected, and the student’s accepted amount of Financial Aid is later found to be insufficient to pay the housing and/or dining plan fees(s) in full (in that order), the student will be notified and must provide the appropriate insufficient payment for the initial payment due, as well as the September 1 payment, or the student will be responsible for Late Fees. The student remains responsible for all payments due by the due date(s), either in full or as elected through the payment Plan.

Payments may be made online from the Money Matters tab in the student’s Cal Poly Portal or accessed through the “Online Payment” page at the Student Accounts website. Online payments can be made with either E-Check (with no added convenience fee) or credit card (with an added 2.75% convenience fee). MasterCard, American Express, Visa and Discover are accepted. Online payments received after 5:00 PM will be recorded the following business day. If there are any problems making a payment online, contact the University Student Accounts Office at (805) 756-1428.

Cashier:

Payments by cash or check may be made at the University Cashier, Administration, Building 1, Room 131E, Administration Building (8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday).

Checks:

Payment by check/money order should be made payable to “Cal Poly” for the amounts due, and indicate the student employee number, and the fees to which the check is to be applied. Mailed payments are recorded as received. University is not responsible for payments that are lost, late, misdirected, mutilated, or delayed. All payments must be in US Dollars, and no checks are accepted for funds drawn from a non-US bank.

Payment Plan Terms & Conditions

If you do not elect and qualify to have your housing or dining plan charges deferred in full by Financial Aid, then you will be required to either (1) pay the charges in full, or (2) pay the charges through a Payment Plan(s). Payment in full can only be made from August 5 to August 11, 2017. If the Licensee does not pay in full during that period then, Licensee will automatically be enrolled in a Payment Plan(s) for housing and dining plan fees. Licensee will be charged a $21 fee for each Payment Plan in which Licensee is enrolled (up to a total of $42 for enrollment in both Payment Plans). All Payment Plan payments must be paid in full by the scheduled payment due dates. Failure to pay any payment by the scheduled due date may result in a late payment fee being charged to the Licensee’s student account, and a financial hold being placed on the Licensee’s student account, which can prohibit registration or release of transcripts.

On-Campus Housing & Dining Payments can be made by one of the following methods:

E-Checks (free of charge) can be made online* via the “Make a Payment Now” button of the “Money Matters” tab of the student’s portal (my.calpoly.edu) or at the Student Accounts Website. Online payments received after 5:00 PM will be recorded the following business day.

Credit Card online* at the Student Accounts Website (a convenience fee of 2.75% will be charged). Online payments received after 5:00 PM will be recorded the following business day.

Financial Aid - Students who expect to receive sufficient Financial Aid to cover both their estimated registration and housing and dining plan fees can mark the Financial Aid box as a method of payment and submit the “Student Housing License Agreement” as soon as possible to the Cal Poly State Cashier. If the student’s award falls below the amount needed, the Student Accounts Office will notify the student of any additional fees due. For more information visit the Student Accounts Financial Aid Information Page.
