Tuition and Fees

The Board of Trustees determines and approves the tuition and fee rates annually to cover one academic year beginning with the fall semester and ending through the following summer. The current schedule for tuition and fees may be found on the College’s website.

Late Fee Assessments

A late fee will be charged if payment is not received by the designated due date. Only completed and approved financial aid (including loans) will be considered as payment by the designated due date. Incomplete or pending financial aid applications will not be approved for deferment of the tuition payment.

In addition to a late fee assessment, students with open balances may be placed on financial hold and will not be permitted to register for the following semester.

Registration Cancellation for Unpaid Balances

Failure to pay tuition and fees on time may result in the cancellation of classes. If a student is deregistered for non-payment, he or she will be permitted to register again upon payment and approval by the Bursar’s Office. Students dropped for non-payment are not guaranteed the same courses and schedule as their initial registration.

Unpaid Balances and Collections

Student accounts with past due balances are subject to late fees and will be placed on financial hold, preventing future registration or the release of their Diploma.

The College makes every effort to collect all outstanding balances internally. However, if an account is not paid as required, the balance may be referred to a collection agency. Students who are referred to a collection agency will be responsible for the tuition balance plus any collection costs due.

Payment Options

All students are bound by the payment due date (determined by the initial registration date) whether or not a computerized bill is received. Students who register after the officially designated pay­ment due date must be prepared to pay or make appropriate payment arrangements by the deadline. Students who register or pay after the initial registration and payment period may incur late fees. Payment dates can be found on the College’s website.


Payment may be made via cash, check or money order.


E-checks and credit card payments are processed online through Touchnet. Please note: All credit card transactions are subject to a convenience fee.

By Mail

Please include the student's name and ID or social security number on all checks and money orders and make them payable to St. Francis College. Do not send cash by mail. Mail payments to the College's lockbox at:

Third-Party Billing

Students may submit third-party vouchers by the official payment due date. Vouchers will only be accepted in lieu of payment as long as the sponsoring agent assumes responsibility for payment upon receiving an invoice from the College. Students are expected to make appropriate arrangements if a third party fails to pay any portion of the bill.

Employer-sponsored tuition reimbursement programs do not qualify as third-party billing. Companies that do not pay before final grades are recorded may not sponsor students for third-party billing. In such cases, students must pay out of pocket and seek reimbursement through their employer or sponsor.

Refund of Credit Balances

Sign up for eRefund (Direct Deposit)

If you have a credit balance on your account, you may be eligible for a refund. To receive an eRefund, you must log in to MySFC.SFC.EDU and sign up for direct deposit if you have not already done so.

Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan Refunds

If a Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan exceeds the student's College charges, the refund will be made to the parent borrower unless the parent has indicated otherwise on the loan application form allowing the credit to be refunded to the student.

Wire Transfer

If your account has been overpaid by a wire transfer, either the college will return the entire amount of the wire transfer to the originating bank or you may leave the excess funds in your account to be used for future charges. Partial refunds are not allowed.
