Step 8: Pay Your Bill

For general information about this year’s undergraduate costs, visit the Tuition and Fees page.

In June, you’ll receive an email notification to view a preliminary (not official) bill. It will include expected charges for tuition, health insurance, mandatory fees, and room and board (if applicable). To calculate your anticipated balance, subtract your financial aid award for fall from the balance due. We provide this preliminary bill in June so that you have an idea of what to expect on the official bill you’ll receive in July.

  • Access your official bill
    In early July, after you have registered for classes, you will receive an email that your official billing statement for fall is available online. Access your bill by logging in to myUSF and clicking on the View & Pay box.

    From there, you can make a payment or view current account activity from the “Your Account” window. You can view your statements from the “Your Bills” window. You will not receive a paper bill.

    Payment for the fall semester is due August 1. If you register for classes after August 1, you must be prepared to pay the balance due at the time of registration, or you must enroll in the semester payment plan.

    If you do not see your financial aid applied to your bill, you might have outstanding requirements before the financial aid can be applied. Check your financial aid status by going to myUSF → Banner Self Service (Student) → Financial Aid, or contact the Financial Aid office (Step 3).
  • 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 semester payment plan. For more information, please visit the payment methods page.
  • 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, then click the Add New link located in the “Parents and Authorized Payers” window. For instructions on how to make a payment as an authorized payer, please visit the Authorized Payer page.

Deadline: August 1 is the deadline to either pay in full or enroll in a semester payment plan. Failure to meet the payment deadline may result in cancellation of your course registration.

Subsequent payment deadlines are January 1 (spring semester and intersession) and May 1 (summer).
