Internal vs External Rates

UC (Internal) Non-UC (External)
Internal users are users paying with funds that already exist within the University of California system. Usually, UCSD affiliates paying via UCSD index. External clients require a confirmed valid form of payment (check or international wire transfer) and signed Service Contract before an event can be confirmed. Additional rate charges are based on mandatory University overhead cost recovery and are non-negotiable for all clients (including non-profit.)
