Billing and payment processing at USF happens through the Student Accounts Office. The Financial Aid Office works hard to provide information, counseling and financial services to help students and their families navigate the financial aid process.

Payment is due by the first day of classes each semester. Payment options at USF are listed below:

You can pay your entire balance due, less incoming scholarships and loan proceeds, with cash, check, debit or credit card in person or over the phone at (605) 331-6588.
