Student registration is not complete until all financial obligations have been met by the established deadlines. Payment arrangements include:
Full Tuition is due by the start of classes each semester. (Balances not paid in full by this date will automatically be placed on an installment plan. See Installment Plan due dates below).
Payments can be made electronically by check and/or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover) 24 hours/7 days a week through Gateway.
While we encourage you to make payments electronically, payments are still accepted at the Business Office located in St. Louis Hall, Room 24.
Enrollment in any St. Mary’s University course constitutes a promissory note for education purposes and includes a valid electronic signature. These charges are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. Should this note be placed in the hands of a collection agency, the student agrees to pay all costs of collection, including but not limited to, the reasonable fees and cost charged by the collection agency to enforce this note.
The St. Mary’s University automatic installment plan is designed to make current semester balances more affordable by spreading payments over the course of the semester.
Payments should be calculated utilizing the financial award information listed on Gateway. Keep in mind, the amounts listed are not actual values and could cause the final payment to be larger.

Students wishing to participate in an employer tuition reimbursement program must first pay a $50 deferral fee. Then submit a signed Employer Payment Acknowledgement form located on Gateway, accompanied with a copy of their Employer’s Tuition Benefit Plan by the 12th class day each semester.
Once accepted, the balance will be deferred and payment will be expected thirty (30) days after classes have ended each semester. Any delay in full payment will incur a late fee of $200 and will result in a transcript HOLD and/or cancellation of future registrations without notice.
The Texas College Savings Plan is a qualified 529 savings plan offered through the state of Texas. As a courtesy, St. Mary’s University will bill TGTP directly each semester after the 25% refunding period listed on the academic calendar and so long as the following requirements are met:
Balances NOT covered by your plan are due by the designated due date each semester. Installment plans are also an option and require the submission of a Financial Planning form.
Different states have different requirements for application and remittance of payment. Therefore, it is recommended that you contact your state’s 529 plan directly. Students may need to provide a copy of their semester’s bill to their state plan. Payment are usually issued to the policy owner and not directly to the University.
