Enrollment options

How TRIP works

  • You can apply at any time. To take advantage of the three installments, you must apply for TRIP prior to the first billing due date of each quarter. 
  • You must be enrolled and have no holds to use TRIP to make payments.
  • Your first payment includes your non-refundable application fee ($30 for CA residents and $45 for non CA residents) and one-third of your mandatory registration fees. Effective winter quarter 2019, the application fee will be $40 for all UCSD students. 
  • Your remaining 2 installments will be billed later in the quarter.
  • You must pay each installment by its due date. Look for the charges in the Pay Your Current Balance section when you view and pay your bill.

Late payment penalties

If you miss a due date, you can incur the following penalties:

  • Cancellation from your classes
  • A hold on your account
  • A $50 late fee

To cancel TRIP

If you would like to cancel TRIP mid-quarter, please contact TRIP. Please include your name, student PID number, and that you would like to cancel the current quarter's TRIP installments. If you would like to cancel future TRIP installments, please go to TRIP online. Please note that if TRIP has already been applied to your account for the current quarter, the application fee is non-refundable
