Off-Quarter Students

Congratulations on being accepted to SPU for Winter or Spring quarter, or during the Summer Sessions. Here are some important steps to take as soon as possible.

Submit Your $200 Advance Payment

Your advance payment is due to SPU’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions online or by mail within 15 days of receiving your offer of financial assistance. (If you will not be applying for financial aid, your advance payment is due within 15 days of your admission.)

This payment must be made before you register for classes. 

Make your advance payment or send the payment to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in the return envelope that was sent to you, along with your enrollment response card.

The payment will be credited toward your first tuition payment and secures your place for the upcoming quarter.
