Tuition Payment Plan
The University offers a tuition payment plan to all USC Upstate students who are in good financial standing and have no outstanding past due charges. Returning students must meet a GPA requirement of at least 2.0.
NOTICE: The cashier's office does not accept credit card payments. All down payments and subsequent monthly installment payments must be made by check, cash or money order.
The tuition payment plan requires a deposit equal to 25 percent of the student’s bill plus a non-refundable administrative fee of $75 when the payment plan is established. The remaining balance is divided into three installments payable over the next months. A late fee of up to $5 per day may be assessed for any late payments received. Payment notices are sent each month to the e-mail address you have on file with the University of South Carolina Upstate. Monthly statements will not be mailed to your campus post office box or to your home address. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their e-mail address and postal addresses are correct.
To set up a tuition payment plan, students are required to come to Student Account Services located in the HEC building. A picture ID must be provided from each student that sets up a payment plan, and each student must be present at the time the payment plan is created. This is a requirement of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act 2003 amendment.
This tuition payment plan must be completed before the announced cancellation date for the semester. Tuition payment plans are not offered for summer terms.
