Payment Plans

SCSU offers interest free payment plans for fall, spring, and summer!

Payment plans must be established when payment or financial aid cannot be posted to satisfy the balance in full by the bill deadline.  After you register for classes, log into your account to view charges, credits/financial aid, and then choose the payment plan that's right for you!  The first payment plus the $45.00 plan enrollment fee are due at time of enrollment; payments are due on the 15th of the month thereafter.

Plans will automatically recalculate due to account adjustments, which may include additional charges, unanticipated payments, or a change in financial aid credits to your account. Students and authorized users will be notified of any adjustments to the student's monthly payment plan amount. Please see Bill Due Dates and Payment Options - Past Due Accounts for other terms and conditions regarding late fees/holds that may be placed on past due payment plan accounts.

New full-time undergraduate students are required to pay a non-refundable $200 enrollment confirmation deposit. Visit the Admissions Portal to pay your deposit.

To apply for housing students are required to complete an application and submit a non-refundable $250 deposit at the end of the application.

Note: Parents, guardians, or other third parties do not have access to pay the housing deposit on the students account, as payment must be completed at the end of the student housing application. Please contact Residence Life for more information or assistance applying.

Past Due Accounts

An account is considered past due once the due date has passed. Students may become past due for various reasons (i.e. inadequate or returned financial aid, missed payment(s) on payment plans, the addition of unpaid charges/courses after the bill due date, etc.).

If you do not pay the amount due by the due date, a hold may be placed on your account restricting course registration. You may not be allowed to move into your residence hall until payment is made, and you may be subject to class schedule or housing assignment cancellation due to non-payment. To be reinstated, payment of a $100.00 non-refundable re-registration fee plus your original account balance in full is required, though availability of your original class schedule and housing assignment is not guaranteed. Past due accounts are also subject to a $50 late fee after a ten (10) day grace period.

Students may request a past due payment plan with the Student Accounts Office, although the hold described above will remain in place until the account balance is paid in full.The first installment along with the $50 enrollment fee is due upon enrollment in the plan. The penalties for late/non-payment above also apply to past due payment plans. Failure to make a required payment plan installment within thirty (30) days of any due date will result in the student being withdrawn from the past due payment plan and their account will be sent to a collection agency without further notice.

In an effort to collect past due debt, the University will send collection letters and emails to students at their last known address. To avoid account referral to a collection agency, students must pay the balance in full, or set up a past due payment plan within 30 days of the notice. If an account is referred to a collection agency, the student will be responsible for all collection fees, the balance will be reported to a national credit bureau(s), and the University will no longer accept direct payments - in that the student must make all payments to the collection agency before conducting any further business with the University.
