Financial Arrangements

After registering for classes each semester, students at Saint Louis University must make financial arrangements regarding their billed costs to secure placement within those courses. Students have the option of several payment plans to assist with affording a SLU education as follows:

Pay in Full

Students may pay their semester bill in full to Saint Louis University. Full payment for the fall semester is due August 1 and full payment for the spring semester is due January 1.

Pay Monthly

Students may also enroll in one of two monthly payment plan options. The deadlines for enrolling in a monthly payment plan are August 1 for the fall semester and January 1 for the spring semester.

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

Interest Charge: If students choose this option,  they will be assessed a 1% 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% interest charge.
