Step 13: Pay Your Bill
In preparing for the start of the semester, you should plan how you will pay your semester bill, including tuition, fees, and room and board.
- Review the Tuition and Fees for the current year:
Go to usfca.edu/billing-tuition and click the link for the current academic year under Tuition and Fees. Review the charges that you should expect for the semester. Included on this page are tuition charges, room and board, and additional fees.
- Review the Preliminary Bill in View & Pay:
In June, you will receive a preliminary bill which will include charges for tuition, health insurance, mandatory fees, and room and board (if applicable). To calculate your anticipated balance, subtract your anticipated financial aid award for fall from the balance due.
- To access View & Pay, log into myUSF. Click on the View & Pay link in the Quick Links box.
Go to Student Self Service and click on the financial aid menu to determine if you have outstanding requirements that you must complete. Remember: All financial aid requirements must be completed by June 5th in order for your aid to show as a credit on the July billing statement.
- Go to View & Pay after you have registered:
Fall semester charges are applied to your student account in July. Official billing statements will be available online in early July. Pre-registered students will receive an email notification to their usfca.edu email address when the statement is available to view online. Payment is due August 1st.
To access View & Pay, log into myUSF. Click on the View & Pay link in the Quick Links box. In View & Pay, you can Make Payment or view Current Account Activity from the Your Account window. You can view your statements from the Your Bills window. Remember, you will not receive a paper bill, so you must log into View & Pay to view your account.
If you applied for and were offered aid but do not see an amount under authorized aid, go to (or return to) Student Self Service and click on the financial aid menu to determine if you have outstanding requirements that you must complete. Please review the steps outline in Confirm Your Financial Aid if you need additional information.
- Choose your method of payment:
You may pay your tuition using online e-check, personal checks, international bank wire transfer, or by signing up for the payment plan. Go to the payment methods page for more information.
- Set up an authorized payer:
Authorized payers are parents, spouses, employers, etc., who can view bills and make payments online. To set up an authorized payer, go to View & Pay, located in myUSF, then click the Add New link located in the Parents and Authorized Payers window. Authorized payers can go to the authorized payer page for more information.
- Be aware of semester payment deadlines:
Fall: August 1
Intersession: January 2
Spring: January 2
Summer: May 1
Students must make payment in full or enroll in a payment plan by the deadlines listed above. Failure to meet the payment deadline will result in cancellation of your course registration. Please go to myusf.usfca.edu/billing-tuition/payment-plan for more information about the payment plan.
If you register for classes 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.
Go to myusf.usfca.edu/billing-tuition for complete information about the university's tuition and payment policies.
