Policy for Student Accounts

All student account charges are due and payable by the Payment Due Date. To maintain enrollment, students must complete payment and agree to the terms and conditions of the Tuition and Fee Agreement, in addition to meeting all academic and standard of conduct requirements. The University expects students to cover all charges for the current semester before advancing to a future semester.

California Baptist University offers three payment options to assist students in covering tuition and fee charges. Students may choose to make a payment, set-up a monthly payment plan, and/or use financial aid to cover their balance. International, Special Admit, and Pre-College Credit Students are required to pay their balance in full each semester by the Payment Due Date.

Students who remain enrolled past the last day to drop with refund must cover all charges incurred in accordance with the Policy for Refund of Tuition, Fees, Housing, and Meal Charges. If a balance exists, a hold will be placed on the student account preventing release of diploma, and future registration until the balance is paid in full with verified funds.

Payment Due Dates

All students should pay their balance by close of business day on the Payment Due Date to avoid a Late Payment Fee.

  Semester Payment Due Date
  Fall 2024 Wednesday, August 21, 2024
  Spring 2025 Thursday, January 6, 2025
  Summer 2025 Monday, May 5, 2025

University Approved Payment Options

Option 1 (Student Account Payment)

California Baptist University accepts the following forms of payment:

Online Payments - Online check payments and credit/debit card payments are accepted online through InsideCBU. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted with a convenience fee. Online check payments are accepted with no additional cost. Foreign Currency Payments processed by Convera formerly known as Western Union Business Solutions are also accepted online.

Check Payments - Check payments can be made in the Student Accounts Office or mailed to California Baptist University; Attention: Student Accounts; 8432 Magnolia Avenue, Riverside, CA 92504. The student ID number should be listed on the check. All payments must be received in the Student Accounts Office by the Payment Due Date.

Option 2 (Monthly Payment Plan)

The monthly payment plan enables students to pay all or part of their semester charges in four monthly installments without interest. Payments are due on the 5th of the month. A $35 per semester enrollment fee is required. Re-enrollment by the Payment Due Date is required each semester. Please see the InsideCBU Student Accounts tab for more information.

Option 3 (Financial Aid)

Financial aid includes scholarships, grants, federal loans, and alternative loans. Students are encouraged to register and meet all financial aid requirements at their earliest opportunity. Financial Aid must be awarded and accepted by close of business day on the Payment Due Date. Please see the financial aid section of this catalog for more information.

Tuition and Fee Agreement

All students are required to submit a Tuition and Fee Agreement electronically through InsideCBU. The agreement outlines the student’s financial responsibility for covering all student account charges. Students are encouraged to read the agreement and contact the Student Accounts Office with any questions prior to submission.

Delinquent Accounts

All student account charges are due and payable by the payment due date. Failure to make payments of any indebtedness to the University when due, including, but not limited to, tuition, housing or rental charges, student loans, laptop fees, special fees, library or parking fines, is considered sufficient cause, until the debt is settled with verified funds, to bar the student from classes, to record no grades on transcript, to withhold diploma, to dismiss the student, and to hold all records as the University deems necessary. At the completion of each semester, accounts with an outstanding balance are considered delinquent. Interest is charged on all delinquent accounts at a rate of .03% computed daily or 10% per year. In the event an account is turned over to a collection service, the cost of the service and reasonable attorneys’ fees will be added to the account. Returning students will not be permitted to register for classes if a balance appears on their account.

Policy for Refund of Tuition, Fees, Room and Board Charges

The Student Accounts Office will automatically process tuition refunds for all eligible students. Tuition refunds are calculated from the date of official withdrawal. A withdrawal is considered official when a completed Petition to Withdraw Form has been submitted and processed by the Office of the University Registrar, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts.

Ceasing to attend does not constitute an official withdrawal from a course or from the University. However, a Title IV-unofficial withdraw may be processed, as required per federal regulations, which may necessitate the return of federal financial aid.

California Baptist University expects to deliver instruction to its students through its traditional in-person and online formats.  By attending the University, students acknowledge this expectation and understand that the University may be compelled to modify course instruction formats due to circumstances or events beyond the University’s reasonable control such as acts of God, acts of government, war, disease, social unrest, and accidents.  As such, students attending the University assume the risk that circumstances may arise that mandate the closure of the campus or place restrictions upon the University’s delivery of instruction.  By attending the University, each student understands and agrees that they will not be entitled to a refund or price adjustment for the cost of course instruction if their courses are required to be provided in a modified format which the University deems appropriate under such circumstances.   

Refer to the Financial Aid and Academic Information sections in this catalog for additional information regarding withdrawals.
