Enrollment Deposit FAQ


Q: What is the enrollment deposit and who is required to pay?

A: CSU Stanislaus requires undergraduate applicants to submit a $200 deposit upon accepting admission to secure their place in the incoming class. The nonrefundable deposit will be deducted from the balance owed at enrollment. Failure to pay the deposit by the deadline will result in cancellation of the student's application. All new undergraduate students, including Returning students who must reapply for admission, are required to pay the non-refundable enrollment deposit of $200 to secure a place at CSU Stanislaus. 

Q: What happens if I don't pay the enrollment deposit?

A: Accepting admission and paying the enrollment deposit will secure your place in the incoming class. If you have not accepted your admission and paid the deposit by the deadline, you will not be allowed to enroll at CSU Stanislaus. No exceptions will be made.

Q: When do I need to pay the enrollment deposit?

A: Once you have accepted your admission on your MyCSUSTAN account, you should pay the enrollment deposit.

Q: What do I do if I am not able to pay the $200 enrollment deposit?

A: You may submit a written appeal to the Financial Aid and Scholarship office.

Q: What happens if I decide not to attend CSU Stanislaus after accepting my admission offer?

A: Please notify the Admission Office 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 decide to attend CSU Stanislaus in the future, you will need to reapply for admission and meet the admission requirements and deadlines at that time, including paying the enrollment deposit.
