Payment Plans

This is the most efficient and cost-effective plan for students needing a payment plan for two or three consequtive quarters within the academic year:  fall, winter and spring, fall and winter or winter and spring. This payment plan requires a one-time, non-refundable $50 enrollment fee at setup. Students who only need a payment plan for one quarter will want to use Plan B or Plan C that are described below. 

This interest free plan divides a student's outstanding charges into three monthly payments for each quarter:

  • Fall Quarter: October 5, November 5 and December 5
  • Winter Quarter: January 5, February 5 and March 5
  • Spring Quarter: April 5, May 5 and June 5

Students can provide direct access for their bill-payers to both speak to us and also to view, pay, or enroll in payment plans.  To view their financial aid information (including award letters) AND to be able to speak to Student Financial Services, students must setup Third Party Proxy Access via SU Online. Instructions for setting up this access can be found at Third Party Access to Information.    

For access to financial information, students must open Student Account Center and select "Authorized User" to begin the access process for their bill-payer. The Authorized User will get two emails with their login information (this login is separate from the SU Online credentials). The Authorized User will be emailed a payment schedule after setting up the payment plan and paying the payment plan setup fee through the Student Account Center. 

Students can enroll in Payment Plan A online by logging on to SUOnline and clicking "Student Account Center".  This will direct you to the Student Account Center where you can choose the Payment Plan option, pay the setup fee, and confirm your payment method for future payments.

If Student Financial Services approves a student's payment plan after the first payment is due, missed payments must be included in the first payment.  Late payments are subject to the late fee.  The student's payment plan will be cancelled after two consecutive late payments.  At that time, any remaining amount owed for the quarter becomes immediately past due and payable in full and future registration will be blocked until the student's account is current.

Setup for this 3-payment quarterly plan must be done each quarter. This plan requires a $30 non-refundable payment plan enrollment fee. Bill-payer will pay one-third of the total quarter's balance each payment.  

With this plan in place, payments must be received by the following dates:

  • Fall Quarter: September 20, October 20 and November 20
  • Winter Quarter: December 20, January 20 and February 20
  • Spring Quarter: March 20, April 20 and May 20
