Self-Service Installment Payment Plan Agreement

San Francisco State is pleased to offer an Online Installment Payment Plan through the Student Center application. The online installment payment plan is an opportunity for students to pay each semester's tuition or non-resident tuition in three monthly installments, rather than one lump sum. It gives students the convenience to sign up without filling out paper application form and waiting in long lines. Participation in the installment plan is recorded immediately on your account. The plan does not defer payment of other campus mandatory fees such as local/program fees plus applicable administrative and/or late registration fees. Payment of these fees are required on or before the published fee payment due date.
