Student Accounting

2100 Dutton Hall

Billing Statements — At UC Davis, billing statements are provided electronically on about the 22nd day of each month. No paper statements are created for enrolled students. Once available, statements can be viewed by students at MyBill. Students can share access to their online statements by creating "authorized users." Students and their authorized users are sent an e-mail notification when a new bill is posted.

Registration Fee Deferred Payment Plan — This installment plan gives students an opportunity to pay their quarterly registration fees in three monthly payments. Students self-enroll through their SisWeb account, and parents can download a form and pay by check. Deadlines apply.

Direct Deposit for Overpayments — Students may have refunds for overpayments deposited directly to their bank accounts. These payments could result from financial aid, stipends or any other student account credit balances. Students who enroll for direct deposit will receive e-mail notification of any deposit activity.
