Registration and Fee Payment

SPSU offers multiple registration periods, each with an assigned fee payment deadline, for currently enrolled students to give them the opportunity to secure a schedule for a coming term.

The registration process is not complete until payment of fees is completed. Students who have signed an official award letter, (which signifies acceptance of the financial aid) and have registered for classes are assumed to be students who will attend classes.

The fee payment deadlines for each registration period are published each term in the academic calendar and on the registrar's web site.

Failure to pay tuition and fees by the published deadline date can cause the cancellation of your registration.

Payment of fees and other charges may be made with:

  • Cash
  • Checks
  • Approved financial aid
  • Approved Credit cards

Registration fees may be paid on the SPSU web site using credit cards (except VISA). On-line transactions are fully encrypted for the safety of both the student and the university.

Students who register for courses and pay appropriate fees using any acceptable method of payment are considered enrolled and space is reserved in the class(es) for the duration of the term.

Students are encouraged to register and pay fees as early as possible to avoid potential problems.

All payments returned to the University due to insufficient funds are subject to a $30.00 or 5% of the face value returned check fee. Any outstanding returned check payments will be turned over to either a collection agency or the State Attorney General's Office for further legal collection action. All accounts turned over to a third party for legal collections will be subject to an additional collection cost (in addition to the original debt owed to the University).
