Drop for Non-Payment and Late Fee Payment Deadline

Drop for Non-Payment for Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students may be dropped from their classes if they have not paid their current university fees and any outstanding balance due by the Student Fee Payment Deadline: September 15th for fall quarter, December 15th for winter quarter, and March 15th for spring quarter. Payments are posted to the student account on a nightly basis, and all payments must be made by 4:00 p.m. (PT) at the Cashier's Office, in Dutton Hall or via MyBill by 11:59 p.m. (PT).

If an undergraduate student’s classes are dropped for non-payment, all tuition and fees for that term will be removed from the student’s account. Once the drop for non-payment process is completed, paid wait-listed students are rolled into open classes before the registration freeze lifts and registration is re-opened for all students. Once the registration freeze is lifted, all students may access Schedule Builder to register or change class enrollments.

Undergraduate students who are dropped for non-payment remain eligible to register for classes. However, there is no guarantee that students who were dropped for non-payment will be able to register for the same classes that were dropped for non-payment.

Undergraduate students who re-register after being dropped for non-payment, or who register for the first time after the registration freeze will be assessed tuition and fees, and the late registration fee. These students must then make payment by the Late Fee Payment Deadlinethe 10th day of instruction. Failure to pay tuition and fee, the late registration fee, and any outstanding balance due will result in the student's administrative withdrawal from the university.  If payment is not received by this deadline, undergraduate students will be administratively withdrawn and these students will remain financially liable for tuition and fees for the first 10 days of instruction as per the Schedule of Refunds.

Students who no longer wish to remain enrolled in classes for the term must complete a Cancellation/Withdrawal form. They should not use or expect the drop for the non-payment process to remove them from their classes, or relinquish them from their financial responsibility and obligations for the term.

Drop for Non-Payment for Graduate Students

Graduate students who have not paid tuition, fees and any outstanding balance due by the Final Fee Payment Deadline will be cancelled from their future term, and all registered classes for the future term will be dropped for non-payment. In addition, the late registration fee will be assessed.

Graduate students who wish to re-register after having been dropped for non-payment for the future term must:

  1. Pay all current term tuition and fees, the late registration fee, and any outstanding balance due.
  2. Take proof of payment to Graduate Studies in 250 Mrak Hall.
  3. Once activated, register for classes via Schedule Builder.

Graduate students who choose to withdraw from the current term or not to be reactivated for the future term, are still responsible for current term tuition, fees and any outstanding balance due. If their future term is not re-activated, they may be required to formally reapply to a UC Davis graduate program for any future term.
