Billing and Payment

The Bursar's Office publishes student billing statements on or around the first of every month. An email is sent notifying the student a billing statement is available to view in TouchNet. Students may view their account activity at any time, which reflects the current and most up-to-date balance. Payment due dates change each semester and any new balances thereafter are published on the Bursar's website and on the billing statement. Students must remit payment or enter into the University's payment plan by the due date on the billing statement. To make a payment, log into MyUSI and click on the TouchNet icon. TouchNet accepts e-checks and credit/debit cards. A 2.85 percent convenience fee will be assessed for all debit and credit card payments. The Bursar's Office also accepts in person payments with cash, personal check, or money order.
