The following charges may be applied to student accounts:
Late payment fee of $100
charged to all accounts not paid in full by the end of the first full week of classes.
assessed to the student account if the financial aid award does not cover in full the amount due, and the student fails to pay the remaining balance by the end of the first full week of classes.
assessed if the student's failure to complete financial aid paper work by specified dates delays financial aid disbursements.
Late payment fee of $50 or 2% of outstanding balance, whichever is greater
Charged to all accounts enrolled in Deferred Payment Plan where payment is not received within 5 days of due date
Service fee of $25 - charged for all returned checks, plus late fees assessed if accounts are still open past the end of the first full week of classes. After three returned checks, payment must be made in cash, by money order or cashier's check.
Holds on student transcripts are placed for failure to make payment during any semester, preventing further class registration.
Delinquent accounts may be referred to a collection agency and reported to national credit bureaus. All expenses and fees incurred by the School of Law during this process are added to the student account.
Failure to pay your tuition balance in full on time may result in being administratively withdrawn from your classes for the term.
Deferred Payment Plan allows you to pay your balance in 4 (four) monthly installments (3 (three) installments in summer term):
First payment, due the first week of class, is 1/4 (1/3 in summer) of your balance (after scholarships and/or loans have been applied)
Remaining balance is split into three (two in summer) equal payments, due on set dates throughout the semester.
A 1.5% deferred payment fee will be added to the remaining balance.
A signed copy of the Payment Plan Agreement will be on file in the Business Office and will not reflect on your Student Account Center account.
Failure to complete payments within 5 days of scheduled dates will result in a late fee of $50 or 2% of the outstanding balance, whichever is greater. For more information, see PaymentPlan.pdf, page 2.
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 the Student Account Center. 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.
Tuition Due Dates: Each semester's tuition due-date is the last day of the first week of classes.
