Accepting Fees

To avoid your classes from being purged PLEASE complete the registration process by accepting your fees through your Student Banner Account and print your fee sheet.

If you made a partial payment online, you will be prompted to complete a Master Promissory Note before you can print your fee sheet.

Failure to complete these instructions will result in your classes being purged and you will NOT be enrolled for the current semester.

Students who drop a course or multiple courses but remain in at least one semester credit hour are entitled to a 100 percent refund for those classes dropped by the Census Day of the session.

Deferment Plans

Under the Deferred Payment Plan (DPP), a student may elect to defer up to 40% of their educational fees. Specific due dates are given at time of registration. The DPP requires that the student pay at least 60% of current fees assessed at the time of application. Any outstanding balance must be paid in full prior to this type of arrangement.

Late fees or books cannot be paid through deferred payment plan.

To request a deferred payment please contact the Bursar's Office at tbrown@susla.edu.

Previous Balance/Delinquent Accounts

Students that do not pay the total account balance in full by the final due date will have a financial hold placed on their record.

A financial hold (FH) restricts all university services, including future registration. If your account balance remains outstanding, the financial hold also prevents graduation as well as the processing of official transcripts.

The Bursar's Office assists current and former students with resolving financial holds.

Student accounts remaining unpaid by the end of the term are deemed delinquent and will be reviewed for Collections.

Contact the Bursar's Office to:

  • Resolve your delinquent balance.
  • Set-up payment arrangements and avoid further collection action.
  • Discuss your financial difficulties and recommend repayment options

All delinquent balances must be satisfied in full before students are permitted to register for classes. Requests for transcripts and diplomas will be denied until all delinquencies are resolved.

Further collection actions may include but are not limited to:

  • Referral to an external agency
  • Credit Bureau reporting
  • Litigation
  • Collection/attorney fees added to the delinquent balance
