Payment Plans

Student Financial Services provides students with three options to meet their financial obligations: Plan A, paying in full on quarterly due dates (i.e., three payments for the year); Plan B, paying monthly for Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters (i.e., nine payments); Plan C, paying monthly for one quarter only (i.e., three payments for one quarter).

Benefits for payment plans B and C include:
  • Student Financial Services provides a worksheet at the beginning of each quarter estimating your monthly installments.
  • You and your family can pay the quarterly owing balance with monthly payments.
  • You are exempt from late fees or financial holds, provided you make on-time payments.

Note: For the payment plan application to be completed, you must be enrolled for the quarter, have submitted all financial aid requirements, and your account must be current.

Plan A: Quarterly Plan

Plan A requires no application and no fee. Your remaining balance, after financial aid is applied, will be due in full with the first payment due date for each quarter.

If payment in full is not received by these dates, the account will be subject to late fees and registration/transcript holds (see Late Charges and Payments). You are automatically enrolled in Plan A if you do not apply for Plan B or Plan C.

Financial aid includes SPU scholarships, grants, federal grants and scholarships, state grants and scholarships, outside scholarships, student loans, and parent PLUS loans. Work study cannot be used in the calculation of payments.

Plan B: Academic Year Monthly Plan

If you choose Plan B, you complete only one application and pay a one-time $80 fee for the year (i.e., Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters.)

  • You will make three payments per quarter, or nine payments annually.
  • SFS will provide a worksheet each quarter with your estimated monthly installments, after financial aid has been applied.
  • Find the payment plan application in Banner through the Student Menu  >  Student Accounts Menu.
  • You must complete the online application by September 5, 2017.
