Financial Information

Payment Plans

Families are billed semi-annually for tuition and fees with due dates just preceding the fall and spring semesters at Syracuse University. Other payment plans are available, however, if families wish to participate in either a monthly payment plan or a prepaid tuition plan.

Monthly Payment Plan

U.S. Residents Only: Syracuse University offers a Monthly Payment Plan that spreads charges for each semester over monthly installments. There is a nonrefundable application fee for participation in this plan. The fee will be included in the first month's bill. You do not have to send the fee with the application. Details and an application for the plan are sent to admitted students with their admission notification. You may also find these online.

Prepaid Tuition Plan

The University's Prepaid Tuition Plan allows first year students to prepay eight consecutive semesters (four fall and four spring), thereby locking in the rate of tuition in effect at the time of the plan's initiation.  Payment must be received by August 1, just before the first term of the sudent's matriculation.  Ths plan is available only to full-time Main Campus undergraduate students awarded less than $8,000 per year in institutional aid.
