payment process

Once you’ve applied to a travel study course and an “Accepted - Pending Course Enrollment” email is received from Travel and External Study, you must register for the course. You are NOT admitted into the course until you properly register for the course with the Office of Registration in the One Stop - creating a travel account and applying to a course is not the equivalent to registering for the course.
NOTE: When registering for your semester courses, please add the Travel Study course last. If registering for your travel study course takes you over 18 credits, you will need to complete an Override Form. You may also be eligible for the Tuition Waiver Program if you are taking over 18 credits (see below).

To identify the CRN# and Course Title you will need in order to register and ultimately pay for the course, refer to your travel study course page found here or log-in to your Travel Account.

Payment Instructions

For Credit Travel Study Courses - Once you are enrolled in the class associated with your travel course, the program fee for travel will appear on your student account along with your tuition and fees charged for the semester. It is your responsibility to finalize your payment by the payment deadline.

For Non-Credit Travel Study Courses - Once you have been admitted to a travel study course or program you will be required to pay your fees at the One Stop window on the second floor of the Ahmanson Building.

For Extension Participants - All billing, and payment will need to be completed through the Extension Office.
