  • I am enrolled in the DPP and was charged a $10 Late Fee even though my installment amount was automatically deducted from my bank account. Why is this?
  • Fees that are not included in the Deferred Payment plan require a separate payment along with the installment.  If you received a late fee then you have not paid all of what is due.  In order to ensure that you are capturing all fees that are not included in the Deferred Payment Plan, please view the “Other Charges Not Included in Plan” under the Current Account status page of the MyBill and be sure to pay these in addition to your installment amount by the given due date.
  • I can't make the payment by the fee payment deadline. What should I do? 
  • We recommend contacting the Financial Aid Office for any other funding options.  If this is not an option, please consider enrolling in our Deferred Payment Plan.

  • Why do I keep receiving notifications that my DPP keeps changing? 
  • Your DPP will automatically adjust as aid adjusts on the account. If you receive additional Financial Aid, your DPP installments will adjust to become lower or even possibly pay the plan off if enough aid is disbursed. If aid is pulled back, you will need to pay this portion back to UC Davis as those funds were already used to pay a portion of your tuition and fees.

  • Can I sign up for DPP during the summer? 
  • Yes, you can sign up for DPP for Summer Sessions 1 and 2. DPP is not available for Special Summer Session or Summer Abroad.
