Online Forms Required

All students are required to accept financial responsibility and select a payment schedule through completing the SCU Student Financial Agreement form and the Payment Plan form. First payments must be made by the first payment due date in order to be authorized to attend classes.

 

Other Important Information

All charges for students taking less than 6 credit hours per semester must be paid in full at the beginning of each class.

A late payment fee of $50 will be charged for payments not made by the due date. If the total amount due (sum of payments plus $50 late fee) is not paid by the next due date, the student may be removed from class.

Students should be diligent in checking the My Ledger link on the student portal for remaining or adjusted balances:

  • Adjustments to financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships)
  • Changes in enrollment (adding or dropping classes)
  • Changes in housing
  • Book charges
  • Fines or fees

 
If any of these changes occur after the last payment date, the balance is due at the time of the change. 

  • All accounts must be settled by the end of each semester before a student can re-enroll for the next semester.
  • Students will be placed on hold if a balance remains after the final payment is due. A hold will prevent the following actions including but not limited to receiving official or unofficial transcripts and diplomas, pre-enrollment for the following semester, and reserving housing.
  • Though it is deemed a last resort, balances may be submitted to professional collections after two (2) months delinquency. Please help us avoid this process by making your payments on time and keeping your contact information updated with the Business Office.
