Billing and Payment Information

The Office of the Bursar has adopted Self-Service: View Account and Make a Payment, which is more efficient and environmentally friendly. Tuition bills are generated electronically.

We believe this will streamline the student billing process and help to meet the growing expectation of our students for online payment services while providing you with an accurate, current and secure statement of your account that is available anytime you want to see it.

Additional benefits and services provided with the online billing process include:

  • Student's ability to authorize other users (such as parents or spouse) to view and make payments toward their account
  • Ability to view payment history
  • Ability to view previous statements
  • Payment accepted by electronic check, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover Card. If any checks rejected due to account closed, cannot locate bank account or invalid account number, a $25.00 return fee will be added to the student account.
  • Automatic and immediate posting of payments to the student account

Bill Delivery

To view your bill, make a payment or add an authorized user, log onto mySXU and go to Self-Service.

Payment Due Dates

Students who register for classes must pay all tuition and fees as billed unless they officially withdraw in the Office of Records and Registration by the withdrawal deadline. The University will not initiate withdrawals; the students must either drop a class or officially withdraw from the University within the published time period to be eligible to receive a tuition refund or adjustment.

For students who are unable to pay the amount due in full by the first day of classes, the University offers the following financing options:

Payment Plans 

Choose either plan ONLY if you are not paying your balance in full for the semester or your Financial Aid does not cover your entire balance. Plans on past due balances must be set up in the Office of the Bursar.

Failure to sign up for a payment plan offered by Saint Xavier University by the first day of class will result in the following:

The University may place a business hold on my student account, preventing me from registering for future classes, receiving transcripts, or receiving my diploma and if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Saint Xavier University by the scheduled due date, Saint Xavier University will assess a late payment fee of $100 each semester.

Once the semester ends, Saint Xavier University may also refer my delinquent account to a collection agency and require reimbursement of the fees of any third party which will be calculated at the maximum amount permitted by applicable law and/or may be based on a percentage of the debt.   Saint Xavier University will also report any unpaid accounts to a credit bureau or similar reporting agency.

All student accounts must be current in order to register for future semesters and to receive grades, transcripts and financial clearance.
