How do I check my balance? What does the bolded red number mean?
When I try to pay for my classes online, the payment page says “Transaction Declined”. How can I continue my enrollment and payment?
Please verify the card information you entered is correct: card number, card holder name, billing address, and CVV2 code. If one or more fields need correction, you may edit them, then continue to the next steps and complete your registration. If all fields were correct and you are using a credit card, you may call your credit card company to determine the issue. After your card company has verified your credit card is cleared to make this large transaction, you can make another attempt to complete your online enrollment and payment.
If all the fields were correct and you are using a debit card, you may have a daily spending limit, which would prevent you from completing your transaction. To authorize this large transaction, you should call your bank. Then, make another attempt to complete your online enrollment and payment.
If you are still experiencing difficulty making a payment online, please email firstname.lastname@example.org explaining your situation, or call us at (949)824-6494, and one of our staff members will assist you on how to proceed.

Likewise, you may already be in our database, but we didn’t have your SSN or birth date already on file. If that’s the case, then the record you are creating is considered “new” and not yet connected to your existing information. You may call Summer Session at (949) 824-6494 and have them perform a search for your information so that they can connect all of your files. Otherwise, you may have to choose a new email address to continue enrolling. Please be sure to use a valid email, or you may have difficulty signing into the site in the future if you forget your password.
