Payment Plans

Payment plan benefits include:

* Have Student Financial Services calculate your estimated owing balance for you.
* Pay your quarterly owing balance in monthly payments.
* Be exempt from late fees or financial holds, provided you make on-time payments.

Reimbursement Program/Third-Party Billing

If your tuition is reimbursed by your employer or a third party (such as an embassy or government agency), you may be eligible for the Employer Reimbursement or Third Party Billing program.

Documentation confirming enrollment in an employer reimbursement program or third party billing is required and allows tuition deferment up to approximately 30 days after the quarter ends. If a third party is involved, the University will bill the third party directly, provided SFS has been given the appropriate documents, such as purchase order, official authorization, etc. All other fees and charges are due when billed.

If you participate in the Boeing Tuition Voucher program, your eligibility is subject to approval by the Boeing Company. Until SFS receives an approved voucher from the Boeing Company for participation in its Third-Party Billing program, you will receive monthly account statements and be responsible for all charges.

Once the process has been completed, the approved tuition and fees will be paid on your student account. You will continue to receive monthly statements if you incur charges not covered by Boeing.



For Americorps funding, please visit Americorps and create a profile and voucher.

Contact Student Financial Services by calling 206-281-2061 or fill out our contact form for more details.

Late Charges and Payments

If the billed statement balance is not paid each month, your account will be considered past due and the following penalties will apply:

  • A late fee of 1.25 percent of the owing balance will be assessed after the payment due date.
  • You will not be able to register for future quarters or obtain official academic transcripts or diplomas until your account is in good standing.
  • If you were in Option B or C payment plan, you will be removed from the plan.
  • Severely past due accounts may be referred to a collection agency. You will be responsible for collection fees of at least 30% and up to 40% of your outstanding balance in addition to the amount due SPU.
