Paying and Reading Your SU Bill

The mission of the Bursar Office is to facilitate the registration of every student in a manner that serves the best interests of the students and the University alike.

The first fall semester electronic bill (e-bill) is created in June and an email notification will be sent when the bill is available to view online. If you are on the Monthly Payment Plan, you may pay fall over five months. Otherwise, payment will be due on July 19, 2019. To confirm the student's fall registration, your Bursar student account must be current. This means either paid or covered by anticipated financial aid (aid that has been awarded but not disbursed). Accounts on the Monthly Payment Plan will be billed monthly. Those not on a payment plan will be billed for new charges approximately two more times each semester after the initial bills sent in June for fall term and in November for spring term.

Student Account and related financial information is available via myslice.syr.edu under Finances, View student account. Share My Access is a feature used to set up parents/guardians to receive notifications of e-bills. This allows students to provide their parents/guardians with their own account and password necessary to view financial information online, as well as other University information.

Student Health Insurance Requirement

Due September 3

All incoming full-time and returning students are required to carry health insurance that is compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), based in the United States and covers services received in the Syracuse area. You may already be covered by an ACA-compliant insurance plan, and will therefore be able to waive participation in the University-sponsored plan. To waive the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) students must provide proof of qualifying coverage through MySlice by September 3. The waiver form will be available on MySlice starting May 3. For more information about completing the waiver, visit healthinsurance.syr.edu.

Full-time matriculated students are "Eligible" to enroll into or waive the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) through MySlice and the cost of SHIP, an anticipated $1730, was billed to the student's Bursar account. SHIP will be effective 08/01/2019 thru 07/31/2020. You must either acitvely enroll into SHIP or waive out of it. SHIP Plan details are available on our website: healthinsurance.syr.edu

Approved Waivers submitted on/before September 3, 2019 will receive a full refund. Approved refund on/after September 3, 2019 will receive pro-rated refunds only, no exceptions.

Parents trying to access the Health Insurance waiver through their parent MySlice might not have access to "Health Insurance" unless the student has given authorization through the student's MySlice. Parental access to "Health Insurance" must be authorized by the student yearly. Parents with no "Health Insurance" access will need the student to log into their student MySlice to update the authorization. If the student does not provide the authorization to the parent, the student will need to complete the waiver through their student MySlice.
