One of the requirements on the "Steps to Enrollment" section of the admission website says to pay for your student fees before September 15. Right now my BARC account is billed $4459.38 (contract fee, orientation fee, fall undergrad fee, and undergrad health insurance fee).
My question is does all this money really need to be paid by September 15? I have not received my financial aid letter on the UCSB FinAid website and I heard that you don't get it until a few weeks before school starts (Close to Sept 15 I assume). So if you don't get your award letter by that late, I am assuming you won't get any financial aid either until that time.. Which is most likely pass the fee deadline.
Or does the student fees for the September 15 deadline only refer to your contract fee and orientation fee?
