Tuition Payment Policy
Enrollment constitutes a financial contract between you and the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. As such, all tuition and fees for each semester are due no later than five (5) business days following the end of the Add/Drop period for that semester. Summer school tuition and fees are due on the first day of the session in which you are enrolled.
Prior to registering for a new academic year or summer session, you must pay any outstanding balance from any preceding term. If you do not pay your outstanding balance or make payment arrangements satisfactory to the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, you will not be permitted to register. If at any point during the semester you incur additional tuition or fees, you must pay the balance due within five (5) business days.
Your rights to University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law services and benefits are contingent upon your making all payments in a timely manner as stated above. If payment of amounts owed to University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law is not made when due, we have the right to administratively withdraw you, bar you from attending class, withhold your grades, transcripts, diplomas, scholastic certificates, and impound your exams. Failure to maintain good financial standing with University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, as evidenced by failure to make timely payments of any and all balances due, will also result in denied participation in any deferred payment plans and/or some forms of institutional financial aid. In addition, delinquent balances due the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law are reported to the credit agencies, which may impact your credit rating. Further, failure to maintain good financial standing may be reported to any state bar to which you may seek admission.
The Business Office will work with the Financial Aid Office to verify the amount of loan money you will be receiving. Upon verification of the loan proceeds, tuition that will be covered by the funds will be deferred until receipt of the funds. Loan funds will be applied directly to the tuition account for all courses for the term. Payment, for any portion not covered by loan disbursement, is due by the date specified herein. You may pay by check, cash, money order or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express). Payments may be made to the Business Office by mail or in person, or if paying by credit card, by phone at 916.739.7054.
If you pay your tuition & fees by credit card and then, additional financial aid is received, we are bound by our merchant agreement to credit your credit card. If you withdraw or are dismissed during the year, all outstanding obligations become due and payable on the termination date. No adjustment of tuition will be made for late enrollment, absences from class, leaves of absence for a portion of a semester, or when a student has been dismissed or suspended by official action of the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. Students auditing courses pay the same tuition and fees charged to students registered for credit.
Installment Payment Plan
An installment plan to pay tuition and fees is offered to all students. Each student that elects to participate in the Installment Payment Plan must sign a contract with the Business Office prior to the start of each semester. Students receiving financial aid may also elect this plan to pay any remaining tuition balance due. The plan requires payment of 40% of the total due prior to the first day of the semester. 50% of the remaining balance is due 30 days after the first day of the semester. Any and all sums then remaining are due 60 days after the first day of the semester. (Note that there will be a $40 Installment Payment Plan Set-Up Fee and $20 Late Fee for payment received after due date.) If there is a failure to make any of the scheduled payments, as outlined by a signed contract, University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law may declare the unpaid balance to be in default and demand immediate payment of the entire unpaid balance including: principal, accrued interest, late fees and any applicable collection costs. Collections costs shall not exceed 30% of the principal, interest and late fees at the time of acceleration. Because of the short time frame, we no longer offer Payment Plans during the summer months.
