Late Fee Penalties and Payments

Students may enroll and pay fees after the fee deadline; however, a non-refundable $50 late enrollment fee and a $50 late registration fee are assessed. Fees are immediately due when you enroll in a course after fee deadline for Session I and Session II. View the Calendar for deadlines. 

Students who pay fees after the fee deadline will be charged a $50 late fee. The late fee will be posted after the refund deadline. The system will verify all payments that are received after the deadline and place a $50 charge on your account. Please note the $50 late fee charge and submit your payment. 

If tuition and fees are not paid in full by the payment deadline, the student's enrollment in all courses for that session may be cancelled for non-payment. The Summer 2022 cancellations occur on June 23 for Special Session, June 24 for Session I and July 29 for Session II.

Please note, seats are not held for students who have been cancelled for non-payment. If you are cancelled from a course, and you want to re-enroll, you will be placed on a waitlist if the course is full. You will also be assessed the non-refundable $50 late enrollment and $50 late registration fee upon re-enrollment.  If you add courses after the cancellation date has passed, you are responsible for all tuition and fees associated with your enrollment.  See the Session I, Session II and Special Session calendars for deadline dates. 

If you were added to a class from the waitlist after the payment deadline, please contact Summer Session Office at summer@ucsd.edu to reverse the late fee.

Problem with a late fee?

Late fees are not reversible or refundable.  However, there are two circumstances which the University considers when reversing late fees.  Late fees can only be reversed for the following reasons:

  • University system error, which causes a delay in students' ability to enroll or pay fees.
  • Failure to act by student because of a sudden disabling illness or accident.
