Financial Arrangements

After registering for classes each semester students must make financial arrangements regarding their billed costs in order to secure placement within those classes. Students have the option of several payment plans to assist with affording a Saint Louis University education. The Saint Louis University Budget Plan allows parents and students to pay tuition, fees, and on-campus housing costs on a monthly basis per each period/semester of enrollment. The student’s account is assessed a 1% finance charge on the monthly outstanding balance. Students contract for this Budget Plan when students receive the initial bill for each period of enrollment and make the minimum payment.

Pay in Full

Pay your semester bill in full to Saint Louis University. Full payment for the fall semester is due Aug. 1; full payment for the spring semester is due Jan. 1.

Monthly Payment Plans

You can also enroll in one of two monthly payment plan options. The deadlines for enrolling in a monthly payment plan are Aug. 1 for the fall semester and Jan. 1 for the spring semester.

Semester Enrollment Fee: If students chose this option, students will make monthly payments that are interest free, but students will be assessed an enrollment fee of $75 each semester.

Interest Charge: If students chose this option, students will be assessed a 1 percent interest charge each month on any unpaid balance.

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 percent interest charge.
