Online Payments by Parents, Guardians or Other Third Parties

If you are a parent, guardian or other third party, students can give you access to Payment Suite and their e-bill independently of MySLU. This process requires two steps:

  1. Become an authorized user and obtain a password. Students can use MySLU to register you as an authorized user. A password will be sent to the email address provided by the student.  
  2. Log in to the Bill Payment Suite. You can log in at https://billpay.slu.edu using the email address and password associated with your authorized user registration. Once there, you may view the student's bill, make payments or enroll in a payment plan.

International Payments by Wire Transfer

International students can make payments using Flywire by peerTransfer. Flywire accepts payments from any country — typically in your home currency.

Using Flywire:

  • Once you initiate payment on slu.flywire.com you will receive detailed instructions on how to transfer funds to SLU. Flywire will keep you informed every step in the process, including when funds have reached SLU.
  • Create a booking with Flywire every time you need to send money to SLU. For more information, you can view videos about Flywire and how to make payment.
  • After you've made your payment, log back into Flywire's website to review the status of your payment. SLU will be notified once Flywire has guaranteed the funds.
  • Flywire has 24/7 support available via phone, email or Skype. Please see Flywire support for contact information.

Late Payments and Nonpayments

Late Payments:

Students enrolled in the payment plan with an enrollment fee will automatically be switched to the payment plan with the 1 percent interest charge if they are late making more than one payment. Interest charges and late fees will not be assessed until after Sept. 1 for the fall semester and Feb. 1 for the spring semester.

Nonpayment on Account:

If any tuition, fees or charges owed to the University are not paid as and when due, we reserve the right to withhold transcripts or diplomas related to your enrollment and cancel your enrollment for a current term and/or registration for future terms. If you no longer plan to attend Saint Louis University, contact the Office of the Registrar for an official withdrawal at 314-977-2269.

Payment Plans

Pay in Full

Pay your semester bill in full to Saint Louis University. Full payment for the fall semester is due Aug. 1; full payment for the spring semester is due Jan. 2.

Monthly Payment Plans

You can also enroll in one of two monthly payment plan options. The deadlines for enrolling in a monthly payment plan are Aug. 1 for the fall semester and Jan. 2 for the spring semester.

  • Semester Enrollment Fee: If you chose this option, you will make monthly payments that are interest free, but you will be assessed an enrollment fee of $75 each semester.
  • Interest Charge: If you chose this option, you will be assessed a 1 percent interest charge each month on any unpaid balance.  

Typically, students with an outstanding balance of between $4,000 and $5,000 or more benefit from choosing the payment plan with the enrollment fee. Students with smaller outstanding balances are more likely to benefit from choosing the payment plan with the 1 percent interest charge.

Refunds 

If your financial aid exceeds your direct billed costs, you will receive a refund. Aid can be paid no sooner than 10 days prior to the start of the semester. After aid has been applied based on your choice, a refund check will either be mailed to the address you designated on your account, or deposited directly into a checking or savings account you've connected to your account.

To take advantage of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) refund process, click on the "Refund" tab in the payment suite of your mySLU account.

Federal Regulations: Cash Management

In accordance with the U.S. Department of Education, on October 30, 2015, new cash management regulations were published via the Federal Register (34CFR668.161-167). The Program Integrity and Improvement rules require the Saint Louis University to account for, and disburse Federal Title IV funds in accordance to these regulations. This information is published to comply with these regulatory reporting requirements.

On March 23, 2001, Saint Louis University (SLU) entered a banking services agreement with U.S. Bank. The agreement, and subsequent amendments, do not include services for handling student related Title IV credit balance refunds. However, since many SLU students bank with U.S. Bank, the U.S. Department of Education requires that we publish the contract for public review by Sept. 1, 2016 (See below).

SLU is contracted to market and directly offer enrolled students the option to open an account with U.S. Bank. While your SLU ID includes the U.S. Bank logo, you are not obligated or required to open or maintain a financial account with U.S. Bank; nor are you required to open or maintain a financial account with U.S. Bank in order to receive your refund via direct deposit. You are also not required to obtain an access device offered by or through U.S. Bank. (Federal Regulations [668.164 (d),(e), (f)].). SLU encourages you to research a financial institution that best fits your financial situation and needs.

This information is included in the University's annual disclosure that is communicated to all enrolled students each academic year. For more information, view the contract established with U.S. Bank.

Note that all future disclosures relating to these new regulations and banking services contract will be made to this webpage.
