Making a Payment

  • Paying Online

    Payments can be made online using VISA, MasterCard or electronic check (eCheck) by logging in to SUOnline and selecting "Make a Payment or Pay a Deposit" from the Financial Information section of the Student Menu.

    A service fee equaling 2.5% of the payment amount is automatically added to all credit card payments.  No fee is charged for making an eCheck payment from a bank account. 

    Payments can only be accepted for current charges on a student's account.  The maximum amount that can be accepted is $9,999.00. Making payments in excess of this amount requires two separate transactions.

    The student's Seattle University Student ID Number should be included on or with the payment. Payments not received by the due date, or payments that the Student Financial Services Office is unable to process due to missing or incomplete payment information, will be subject to $50.00 late fees (up to $100.00 per term).
