If your student account balance decreases, it will automatically be reflected in your semester payment plan and your monthly payment will be reduced.

If your student account balance increases, the adjustment is not automatic. You may opt to either 1.) pay the additional balance in full (separate from the payment plan), or 2.) accept it as part of your semester payment plan for future installments. You can do this through View & Pay (accessible through myUSF).

If you fail to make a payment by the 15th of the month, you will be assessed a $10 late fee. 

If a payment is returned, you will be charged a $75 fee. You will then be responsible for making a payment yourself, through View & Pay (accessible through myUSF). If you miss two consecutive installments, you will be withdrawn from the payment plan. Your account balance will then become due in full and may be subject to late fees.

You can submit an appeal to reinstate your access to the payment plan.  A second withdrawal will result in permanent loss of access to the plan.
