PPM 160-2 implements the following policies:

Student Financial Responsibility Agreement

The Student Financial Responsibility Agreement (FRA) informs students of the financial responsibilities associated with enrolling for classes and explains the potential consequences that may be taken if a student fails to meet those obligations. 

All undergraduate students* were required to read and accept the FRA as part of the Admissions Checklist at the start of their UC San Diego academic career. A PDF copy of the agreement can be found here.

*Graduate, Rady, Medical, and Pharmacy students have their own Admissions process where the FRA exists. 

Disclosing financial information to students

  • You may be asked to provide responses to security questions to verify your identify over the phone. In addition, SFS may require some University business be completed in person to ensure identify verification.
  • In the absence of any other guiding policy or where the law is silent, the University is guided by the following principles:
    • Your privacy is important.
    • Your accounts receivable information should be disclosed to you upon your request, unless there is a compelling University interest for non-disclosure.

Disclosing student financial information to others

Based upon PPM 160-2, UCSD follows these procedures in disclosing your student records to others:

  • UCSD may not give out certain types of information about you as the subject of the record without your  prior written consent.
  • Student Financial Solutions staff discuss financial and related issues only with you as the student concerned, unless you have enrolled an  authorized parent/ payer . In this case, SFS staff may discuss financial aid and related issues with authorized parents/ payers.

Campus Cards Terms & Conditions

As a University Cardholder, I understand that:

  • ID cards are the property of the UC San Diego, must be surrendered to the Campus Cards Office upon request, and are not transferable.
  • ID cards are valid only when a student is registered, when an employee is still employed by the University, or when an affiliate has official business with the University, or until the card is expired or revoked.
  • Unauthorized use or use by a party other than the original cardholder, as well as tampering or alteration of the ID card in any manner, may warrant confiscation of the ID card and will be referred for disciplinary action(s) under the  Student Conduct Code
  • I am responsible for the use of the UCSD Student ID card. I understand that the ID card is not transferable; therefore I cannot lend, sell or give the card to others.
  • I must carry my Student ID card at all times when conducting University business or attending University functions/events for proper identification.
  • I will not request a replacement ID card if I already possess an ID card and have not lost or damaged it. 
  • I must report a lost or stolen ID card to the Campus Card Office  by submitting a ticket.
  • Only designated University personnel can generate, produce, update, or deactivate ID cards. The production of fake ID cards is a violation of the policy and will be referred for disciplinary action(s).
  • My photo is stored in the ID card database and cannot be provided to me for any use. The University protects personal identification information as private data under privacy and state rental information laws. This data will not be released outside the University, except in response to a subpoena or other legal processes, of which you will be informed (in advance, if possible). Photo images captured for the ID card become part of cardholder’s University record, and therefore may be used for official University business only.
