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.
