How will I know if I'm approved?

You will receive an e-mail confirmation when you're approved and TRIP has been applied on your account.

Can I apply if I have a hold on my account?

No, you must clear all payment holds before you apply for TRIP. To check for holds, click the Holds link under Tools in the left column.

Can I sign up for TRIP if I am a financial aid recipient?

Yes. TRIP works well if you are expecting a late award, or if you don't receive enough aid to pay for all your fees.

When are installments due?

See the list of billing due dates.

How much will my installments be?

Follow these steps to calculate your installments:

  1. Combine all of your student registration fees, including your college activity fee and your health insurance fee, if applicable.
  2. Divide by 3.
  3. Add the $30 (California resident) or $45 (nonresident) application fee.

The total is the amount of your first installment. The amount remaining after your first payment will be billed in two equal installments during the quarter.

How can I cancel TRIP?

If you'd like to cancel TRIP midquarter, go to TRIP online. If the TRIP was already applied to your student account for the current quarter, you will not be able to cancel TRIP online. You will have to contact SBS at (858) 822-4727. You will not recevie a refund of the application fee. You can, however, cancel your pending application for future quarters.
