Each semester the student is required to complete the Student Agreement of Financial Responsibility prior to online registration for classes at the University of San Francisco . The student assumes responsibility for payment of the charges for educational services, which may include tuition, student health insurance, housing, meal plans, activity and transportation fees, and other University of San Francisco charges for any and all periods of enrollment at the University of San Francisco.

Terms and Conditions

  1. To avoid late payment fees, tuition and other out-of pocket expenses not covered by Financial Aid must be paid on the due dates published by the University of San Francisco prior to the first day of classes for fall and spring semesters. Other incidental charges occurring after the beginning of the semester are due and payable as described in Item #2.
  2. Student will be billed for all unpaid charges on the Account. Invoices/e-bills are available online once the student registers. Students and authorized payers will receive notification of an online bill when new bills are available. Students with an outstanding balance will be subject to registration cancellation, will not be allowed to register nor attend classes, receive transcripts and/or diplomas until the account has been paid in full. Any balance not paid may be assessed a late fee of one and one-half (1.5%) percent per month (minimum $5.00).
  3. All deferred and unpaid balances including late fees shall be due not later than August 1st for fall semester charges, January 2nd for Spring semester charges, and May 1st for Summer charges as a condition for financial clearance to enroll in classes in subsequent sessions. Students who have not registered prior to the payment due date, are required to Pay In Full or enroll in the Payment Plan at the time of registration for all tuition, housing charges, and fees (minus loans, grants or scholarships.)
  4. The University of San Francisco reserves the right to refuse to apply further charges to the Student’s Account and further reserves the right to condition the Student’s enrollment upon payment in full of the Account.

Spring & Intersession: January 2nd

Late Payments

USF may impose late fees and/or deferment fees on outstanding balances. USF reserves the right to recover all costs involved with collection and/or litigation of delinquent accounts. If an account must be sent to collection or litigation, due to nonpayment of the outstanding balance, USF reserves the right to demand payment in full for subsequent semesters of enrollment, prior to the beginning of each semester. USF is a non-profit institution and, as such, student receivable accounts are considered to be educational loans offered for the sole purpose of financing an education and are non-dischargeable in bankruptcy proceedings.

Returned Transaction fee $75.00
Re-Registration fee $75.00
Monthly Late fee 1.5% of balance

If repayment is not received in a timely manner, course registration for the semester may be cancelled.If repayment is made with non-certified funds, account holds will not be lifted until the funds have been cleared. This can take up to 14 business days.
