Reservation Housing Fee!

<p>This has been driving me insane lately. I know very little about financial aid and how the whole system really works…which is unfortunate. The reservation housing fee is due by May 1st and it is $500. Is there a way to defer that payment until I receive my financial aid? When is my financial aid disbursed? I logged on to SISWEB to sign up for the deferred payment plan and it wasn’t working (as in it wasn’t giving me an option to select a term or anything).</p>

<p>I am EOP and very low-income. Hopefully I don’t sound like I’m clueless, but I just want to solve this mystery and get on with my life!!</p>

<p>Thanks in advance :)</p>

<p>Unfortunately you can’t sign up for deferred payment until the month your fall quarter tuition/overall student housing fees are due (September) :C Maybe call up the financial aid office during their normal business hours and explain your situation to them and see what they say. </p>

<p>Financial aid doesn’t get disbursed until sometime in September (last fall, financial aid wasn’t disbursed until two days before the payment deadline).</p>

<p>I have the same exact question, I was hoping if anyone of you can help me. 500 dollars is just too much for me</p>

<p>BUMP, can anyone help me</p>

<p>Reservation housing fee for transfers is not May 1, correct? It should be June 1st, when the SIR is due right?What about the deadline for transfer housing?</p>

<p>I got into Davis, and I understand that as soon as I submit my SIR, I can complete the app for housing, and that it’s first come first serve. However, I’m still waiting on UCB’s decision on the 27th, will I be fine if I decide to wait and do the housing thing then? Or will I get stuck with the “unwanted” apartments?</p>

<p>As an EOP student, you can defer part of your payment. $250 will be due for the housing application to go through, and the other $250 needs to be paid by June 15th. The money goes towards your first payment.</p>

<p>How can i check my EOP application status?</p>

<p>OK everyone! I emailed UCD Housing and all you have to do is tell them that you want the $500 to be deferred until you get your financial aid (which is before classes start) and if you qualify (I was EOP) they will tell you that your payment will be deferred. Easy as that! :)</p>
