Student Financial Solutions offers several different payment options for students and their parents.


If paying by E-Check is not an option for you at the moment SFS provides payment flexibility; including payments with cash, check, Western Union and more.

Check out other ways you can pay your tuition or registration fees below.


UC San Diego joined with Western Union Business Solutions to provide an easy way for you to pay for your tuition. You pay in your home currency, either online or by bank transfer, and the school receives your payment in full and posts the payment to your student account.

  • Students and authorized payers can access this option via the View and Pay Bill page on TritonLink or directly via Western Union's website .
  • Once payment is initiated, a quote will be created for your banking institution and those funds will be transferred to Western Union. Once processed by Western Union, UC San Diego will post the funds to your student account.
  • While processing times vary, Western Union payments take an average of 7-10 business days to complete.

529 PLAN

Prepaid educational savings plans, also known as prepaid tuition plans or Qualified Tuition Programs (QTPs), are dedicated savings plans set up under Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. The funds are set aside for future college costs, and are operated by individual states or educational institutions. Each state has set up one or more of these plans.

The Cashier’s Office processes prepaid educational savings plan payments. Please provide your 529 administrator with the following mailing address:

Central Cashier's Office
9500 Gilman Drive MC-0009
La Jolla, CA 92093-0009

Additionally, payment must include the student's name and ID number. All checks should be made payable to UC Regents.

Please note: 529 payments are processed as cash payments, not scholarships.
