Tuition & Fee Payments

The Business Office accepts any payments to your student account for tuition, fees, and insurance, that are not covered by your financial aid.  We accept checks, money orders, cashier's checks, and cash.  You may pay by credit card or e-check online via the Student Account Center. To visit the Student Account Center, log on to SUOnline, go to the "Student Menu -> Student Billing and Payment -> Student Account Center".   For the current tuition rate and a listing of other fees, please refer to Tuition and Fees.  All tuition and fees for each semester are due at the end of the first full week of classes.

Payment Plan

The Business Office offers a Deferred Payment Plan.  See details here.

Student Account Refunds/Direct Deposit

Refunds due to financial aid disbursements in excess of your account charges are issued no earlier than the Thursday of the first full week of classes, whether it is issued by check OR direct deposit.

Direct deposit of student account refunds is encouraged for your convenience, but not required. To sign up, please log on to SUOnline, go to the Students Menu, and click the link for “Student Account Center” under Student Billing and Payment. Then, choose Refunds from the top menu just below the “SeattleU” logo, and complete the setup process.

Accounts are verified immediately, so the next refund you are due after you set up your account will be directly deposited to your bank.


Credits added to your Campus Card for the campus bookstore, emergency loans, student lockers, and print account credits are all processed by the Business Office. (see Services for details)
