NOTE: Partial payment is not accepted. If partial payment is received, it will remain on your student account and your acceptance for admission will not be confirmed until the full $250 is received.

What happens if my payment does not go through successfully?


If your payment does not successfully process, we will notify you by email.

What happens if I decide not to attend Cal State Fullerton after accepting my admission offer?

Please notify the Office of Admissions as soon as possible if you have decided not to attend. If you have already registered for classes, be sure to drop all of your classes. If you were required to pay the enrollment deposit, this amount will be forfeited as the deposit is not refundable. If you choose to consider enrolling at CSU Fullerton in the future, you will need to reapply for admission and meet the admission requirements and deadlines at that time.
