Student Financial Services


Section 1

Debit/Credit Cards accepted online.

UCI accepts debit/credit card payments online through our third-party service provider, CASHNet, for charges posted to your ZOT Account. American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa may be used. A 2.75% non-refundable processing fee is charged by CASHNet. Debit/Credit Cards are not accepted for in-person payments. 


UCI no longer accepts prepayments for future terms or overpayments on student accounts. Please pay only the amount due on your student account.

  • Please realize that the university is not a bank. 
  • If a charge is not billed on your ZOT Account, payment should not be sent to the university.
  • The university will not accept and/or hold excess payments on the student's account that are intended for living or other personal expenses.
  • Payments for living or other personal expenses must be sent directly to the student.
