Tuition Payment

Paying Your Bill

Enrolled students will receive a bill for their semester charges approximately six weeks prior to the start of the semester. Students may pay their bill by check, credit card, and/or student loans.  If utilizing student loans, the balance remaining due may be paid directly to Saint Mary’s College or through a payment plan. If your employer will be paying your bill, please contact the Office of Student Accounts to arrange billing.
