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.

Payment Plan

Saint Mary's College has partnered with a third-party vendor, TouchNet, to provide convenient and affordable payment plan options.  Payments can be made using a bank account or credit card. Credit card payments will have an additional 2.75% fee. The first payment is due approximately one week prior to the start of the semester, and thereafter, payments are withdrawn each month.

Payment Plan Information

Our payment plan allows you to cover the balance of your semester bill in equal installments. You must enroll each semester with a $30.00 enrollment fee that will be added to your overall balance.
