CARS Bill Deferred Payment question

<p>Hello,</p>

<p>I'm a Spring admit and I have some questions regarding my CARS bill (especially deferred payment plan). I'm a California resident for tuition purposes and when I click Registration-> Reg Fee Summary on Bearfacts, it says my total balance is $7295.25 for Spring 2012 semester. (Please note that I didn't file a FAFSA since I'm not eligible). My question is, I'm planning on doing deferred payment, so in my case my first minimum payment I need to pay would be $1459.05, correct? (minimum payment means 20% of my total registration fee). However, when I click CARS->Quick Statement (Current Balance), it says as follows:</p>

<p>Minimum Amount Due Now: $8,745.65
Minimum Due + Full Reg Fee: $8,745.65
Account Balance: $15,107.25</p>

<p>I do not know why it shows up as that. But the thing is that on the Quick Statement page, it says it was lastly updated on 12/17 so I guess maybe they haven't updated my file yet..? Could anyone explain and what my monthly payment would be? :/ I'm so confused about the whole deferred payment thing..</p>

<p>Thank you in advance! :)</p>

<p>Bump! anyone? :(</p>

<p>My suggestion is that you simply pay what your appropriate deferred payment is. The CARS bill will adjust itself once it has recognized that you have chosen that "deferred payment" option. You really have nothing to worry about. I too was utterly confused by the CARS bill when I first came here. But as you will soon realize, it always seems to work out. Take care and welcome to CAL.</p>
