Similar to our application processes for admission and financial aid, we strive to make our billing as simple as possible. Unlike other college and universities, St. Edward's has a limited number of fees and charges beyond tuition.

The following is a breakdown of the types of charges you can expect to see on your bill, depending on your program: 

Full-time Undergraduates
Your semester bill will include a flat-rate charge for tuition (when enrolled in 12-18 hours), a technology fee, and a university meal plan. On-campus residents will also have their housing charge for the term. Optional fees include a car permit and student health insurance coverage.  Some classes that use specialized equipment or materials may have an associated course fee.

Part-time and Summer Undergraduate Students
Your semester bill will include charges for tuition based on a per credit hour rate and technology fee. Optional fees include a car permit and student health insurance coverage.  Some classes which use specialized equipment or materials may have an associated course fee.

New College Students
Your semester bill will include charges for tuition based on a per credit hour rate and a technology fee. Optional fees include a car permit and student health insurance coverage.  Some classes which use specialized equipment or materials may have an associated course fee.

Graduate Students
Your semester bill will include charges for tuition based on a per credit hour rate and a technology fee. Optional fees include a car permit and student health insurance coverage.  Some classes which use specialized equipment or materials may have an associated course fee.

We bill students a semester at a time. Generally, you will receive your official bill by email about a week after registering although you can request an estimated bill from your Student Financial Services advisor prior to registering.

Books and Supplies
All students will rent or purchase books and supplies separately.  Textbooks purchased through the campus bookstore cannot be charged to your student account.

Payment and Deadlines
Refer to the Bill Payment section for more information on payment options and methods along with semester due dates for payment-in-full or balances financed through the university's monthly payment plan program.

Tuition Insurance
Through GradGuard, St. Edward’s offers a tuition insurance plan as added protection for students and families. This plan can reimburse your non-refundable tuition and housing costs after an unexpected withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, mental health disorder, and more.
