University of San Francisco understands that you like options, therefore, it provides a variety of flexible tuition payment methods to enhance your payment experience.
1. Personal Checks
If you prefer to make payments by personal checks, you should remember to clearly indicate your student ID number on the checks, and then send the check payments to the following addresses:
• Address valid through June 26, 2012:
University of San Francisco
File # 72516
P.O. Box 60000
San Francisco, CA 94160-2516
• New address effective since June 27, 2012:
University of San Francisco
P.O. Box 742427
Los Angeles, CA 90074-2427
However, personally I would not like to recommend this option. Since your check payments must be received and processed by the due date, you have to allow 7 to 11 days for the check processing, which may delay your registration or even get your registration cancelled.
2. Online Payments
If you feel comfortable with online payments, I encourage you to make payments online, which is much more secure and efficient. When your statement is available each month, an email notification will be sent to your USFconnect account or to your authorized payers.
To avoid registration cancellation, you need to make full payments for all charges by the payment due date in each term (or you are enrolled into USF payment plan):
• Fall semester bills are sent to pre-registered students in early July and the payment due date is September 1st.
• Spring semester bills are sent to pre-registered students in early December and the payment deadline is January 2nd.
• Summer semester bills are send to pre-registered students in mid-April and the payment due date is May 1st.
Note: If you do not register before the billing period, you must pay the tuition and other charges in full at the time of registration.
3. International Bank Drafts
University of San Francisco also allows drafts payable in US dollars, which are made through any major bank in the US. The draft mailing address is:
One Stop Enrollment and Financial Services
University of San Francisco
2130 Fulton Street
San Francisco, CA 94117-1080
Be sure to type your student name and student identification number on the draft. If you have any question on international bank drafts payment, you can call 415-422-2020.
4. International Bank Wire Transfers
With international wires transfers, you can conveniently make tuition and deposit payments regardless of which country you live in. University of San Francisco, teamed up with peerTransfer, provides this simple and secure way of payment for its online students.
If you are living out of the US, I advise you to make payments in this streamlined way. peerTransfer allows you to make payments in your home currency, and it offers wholesale foreign exchange rates and lower transfer fees than those of traditional banks. Detailed transfer instructions are listed on usfca.peertransfer.com, so you just need to follow the steps to complete the payments.
5. Special/Third-Party Billing
Given the chance that you are professionals joining USF online degree programs to update yourself with the latest knowledge or earn a higher degree, USF provides third-party billing, allowing your employers or other agencies to fund your tuitions or other expenses. However, this payment option comes with stringent requirements.
• If your company or agency directly reimburses your tuition and fees, you are not eligible for Special Billing.
• Payments contingent upon your completion of class or grade posting are also not qualified for Special Billing.
To qualify for Special Billing, you have to submit an original tuition voucher or letter of authorization from your company’s tuition plan administrator, or a government agency authorization form or purchase order, to the One Stop Enrollment and Financial Services Office/Student Accounts before the payment due date for each semester.
You can call 415-422-2568, or send email to email@example.com to learn more information about Special Billing.
6. Payment Plan
Instead of paying tuition and other fees in full, you can enroll into USF payment plan to make payments through regular schedules. University of San Francisco’s payment plan is offered by Nelnet Business Solutions, a third-party payment vendor.
You can easily sign up for USF payment plan on Factstuition.com. The payment option is flexible and there is no interest charge. Your payments are processed on the fifth day of each month until the balance is paid in full.
USF payment plan, to some extent, relieves your financial stress, however, you need to pay a $50 non-refundable fee upon your enrollment Each Semester! This means that even if you pay the remaining tuition for the semester in full, you can not get the $50 back. So you should consider your budget carefully each semester before enrolling into the payment plan.
