Payment Due Date & Payment Options

If you register for class after the payment due date for the semester, you must be prepared to pay the balance due at the time of registration, or you must enroll in the payment plan.

The payment options described below refer to the balance that you are required to pay the University of San Francisco after all eligible financial aid has been deducted from your semester charges.

1. Payment in Full

If you choose to pay in full, the following are the Payment Deadlines for each semester:

Summer May 1
Fall August 1
Spring January 2

On that date, payment in full for the term is due, or students must have enrolled in the payment plan. Please click here for more information about the payment plan. 

To avoid registration cancellation for the term, students are required to submit payment by the payment due date. If payment has not been received by the payment due date, students will be notified prior to cancellation through their USF email. If registration is cancelled for non-payment, students will be notified through their USF email account. Reinstatement of registration is contingent upon sufficient payment to bring the student's account current.

PLEASE NOTE: Students who have not registered prior to Payment Due Date, are required to pay in full or enroll in the payment plan at the time of registration for all tuition, housing charges, and fees (minus loans, grants or scholarships.)

2. Payment Plan

The Payment Plan is designed to enable students/parents to pay educational expenses through regularly scheduled payments. Educational expenses include tuition, room and board, and mandatory fees. Books, transportation and other miscellaneous expenses are NOT included in this plan.

The Payment Plan is available to all students for the Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters. There is no payment plan available for the Intersession Semester.

Students or authorized payers must enroll into the payment plan online.

3. Special/Third-Party Billing

USF offers third-party billing, or Special Billing, to students whose employers or other outside agency will pay their tuition and/or fees and expenses.

Students whose company or agency reimburses them directly are NOT eligible for special billing. Payments contingent upon completion of class or grade posting are also NOT eligible for special billing. 

Students must submit vouchers/authorizations to Student Accounts, prior to payment due date for each semester.
