Enrollment Deposit and Admission Confirmation

Newly-admitted on-campus freshmen and transfers must submit an enrollment deposit to secure their place in the entering class. The enrollment deposit covers new student charges and a portion of tuition. Paying the deposit opens access to other critical steps in the enrollment process, including on-campus housing, Ram Orientation and course registration.

If payment of the enrollment deposit presents a financial hardship or the full cost of attendance will be covered by a third party (e.g. international sponsor, 100% GI Bill entitlement, athletic scholarship), students can request an enrollment deposit deferral. Students who received a need-based application fee waiver are granted an enrollment deposit deferral when they confirm their intent to enroll. When a deferral is granted, the student secures a place in the entering class and opens access to other steps to enroll, and the deferred amount appears as a charge on the student's first billing statement.

Refer to the appropriate admitted student guide for deadlines and instructions.

Please visit the CSU Office of Admissions website for more information about the enrollment deposit refund policy.
