Tuition Payment

For all undergraduate students, tuition and fees are charged to the Student Bursar's Account approximately 30 days before the beginning of each term. Payment for tuition, fees, room and board, is due on the first day of each term: September 27, 2022; January 4, 2023; and April 3, 2023. In addition, all other charges on the account, such as laundry, library fees, etc. are due net 30 days.

If tuition is being paid by a Third Party agency, an anticipated payment will be applied to the student account to reduce the amount that is owed. If the agency does not remit payment for tuition by the end of the second term, the payment will be reversed from the account and the student will be responsible for the unpaid balance. An unpaid balance will result in a diploma or registration hold.

Online Bill

Student bills are available online after the 10th of each month. Students may log into access.caltech.edu and select the "Bursar Billing and Payment (Transact)" link to view, print, or pay their bills. Authorized users may log into the Transact website at Authorized Users Transact
