Payment Plan Instructions
Payment Plans: There are two major payment options.
1.) PAY IN FULL: Pay your semester bill in full to Saint Louis University. Full payment for the fall semester is due August 1, 2012; full payment for the spring semester is due January 2, 2013.
2a.) MONTHLY PAYMENTS (SEMESTER ENROLLMENT FEE): Make monthly interest-free payments during the semester. If you chose this option, you will be assessed a per-semester enrollment fee of $75. Enrollment is required each semester. You may enroll in a payment plan for the Fall 2012 semester beginning July 2012.
2b.) MONTHLY PAYMENTS (INTEREST CHARGE): Make monthly payments during the semester. If you chose this option, you will be assessed a 1% interest charge each month on your unpaid balance. Enrollment is required each semester. You may enroll in a payment plan for the Fall 2012 semester beginning July 2012.
Enroll in a payment plan and make your first payment by August 1, 2012 for the fall semester and January 2, 2013 for the spring semester.
Payment Due Dates:
For either of the monthly payment plans, payment due dates are Aug. 1, Sept. 1, Oct. 1, Nov. 1 and Dec. 1 for the fall semester and Jan. 2, Feb. 1, March 1, April 1 and May 2 for the spring semester.
Choosing a Payment Plan:
Typically, students with an outstanding balance of between $4,000 and $5,000 or more benefit from choosing the payment plan with the enrollment fee. Students with smaller outstanding balances are more likely to benefit from choosing the payment plan with the 1% interest charge.
Under either monthly payment option, a $50 late fee will be assessed each time a payment is submitted late. Students enrolled in the payment plan with the enrollment fee will automatically be switched to the payment plan with the 1% interest charge if they are late making more than one payment. Interest charges and late fees will not be assessed until after September 1st for the fall semester.
Methods of Payment:
You may make payments online at the Payment Suite (via mySLU.slu.edu), in person at the cashier's window in DuBourg Hall or via mail. Available methods of payment include cash, check, cashier's check, automatic debit, wire transfer, electronic check and credit card. If you chose to pay by credit card, you will be assessed a convenience fee by the PayPath Payment Service; the average convenience fee is 2.75%. Please note that Visa credit cards are not accepted and that you may not make payment via debit card.
