Complaint Resolution Procedures

Credit Card Payment Policy Change

Due to steeply rising transaction fees, the University of San Francisco will no longer accept credit card payments for tuition and fees. This change will be in effect beginning November 15, 2016 after the final payment date for the fall semester. USF continues to offer check and electronic check transfers with no fees applied. The semester payment plan is also an available option to all USF students. You will find information about all of the payment options at usfca.edu/payment. If you have not done so already, investigate the federal student loan program with financial aid. Interest rates are much lower than credit cards. To get started, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.FAFSA.gov.
Please contact stuaccts@usfca.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
