Installment Payment Plan for Tuition, Fees, Room and Board

In accordance with Tex. Ed. Code 54.007, tuition and fees for fall and spring semesters may be paid using one of two alternatives. In addition, the university offers these same payment alternatives for room and board payments:

Full payment of tuition, fees, room and board in advance of the beginning of the semester; or one-third of tuition, fees, room and board plus all non-mandatory fees (e.g., parking, yearbook, administrative fee, property deposit, student identification card, post office box) in advance of the beginning of the semester. Each of the remaining two installments will be approximately one-third of tuition, fees, room and board. The exact amounts due at specific due dates will be shown on the installment plan detail in the eBill system.

The university offers an installment payment plan during summer terms. The plan is two payments of approximately 50 percent each.

Enrollment in the installment payment plan is through mySFA. To enroll, all balances from prior terms must be paid in full. Students will be charged a non-refundable fee for the installment payment plan. A late fee will be assessed on each late installment payment.

All types of financial aid (i.e., federal, state and private) administered by the university to a student will be applied toward payment of the first installment and each subsequent installment in the order due.

The costs for courses added after the initial registration are payable under the same payment alternative as was originally selected. Credits for dropped courses will be applied to any remaining balance before a refund is issued.

If enrollment is terminated for any reason, the unpaid balance of tuition, fees, room and board is due and payable immediately. Refunds for withdrawals are made in accordance with the regular refund schedule (see Refund of Tuition and Fees later in this section). Installment payments due will be deducted from the refund. The student is responsible for the immediate payment of any remaining balance due after the refund is applied. Students who fail to pay the balance in full will be considered delinquent.

The university will email students notifying them prior to the second and third installment due dates via SFA’s eBill system. Students who fail to make full payment by the due dates will be placed on delinquency status and will incur a late charge of $25 for each missed payment date.
