Payment Options

In addition to grants and scholarships along with student and parent education loans, other financing options are also available. These include:

Monthly Payment Plan

Students may take advantage of the payment plan option to pay out their expenses over the course of a semester. The university does not charge interest for the deferred portion of the payment plan, although it does charge a nominal participation fee each semester.

Students can sign up for this option through the Billing Center link located in the Billing and Financial Aid section of their university myHilltop account.

Third-Party Billing

At a student's request, St. Edward's will bill employers or other entities (such as ROTC or trust funds) which pay for all or part of a student's tuition cost (this does not include family members who pay tuition costs on behalf of a student). Students who take advantage of this plan must submit documentation of their Third-Party's intent to pay before the start of each semester.

529 Plans

For students and parents with a 529 plan, work directly with your plan to request payment.  529 payments are treated like a standard check payment, and should include the student's name and ID number for proper processing.  When the university receives the check from the plan, we will apply the credit to the account.
