Tuition Payment

Tuition Payment Plan

USC Upstate offers students the option of enrolling in a payment plan to make monthly payments on their semester balance. The payment plan is available to all USC Upstate students who are in good financial standing and have no outstanding, past due charges.

The tuition payment plan requires a down payment of 25 percent of the student account balance, plus a non-refundable administrative fee of $75 when the payment plan is established. This down payment is required at the time of enrollment.

Please note that we cannot accept credit card payments in our office. You may pay online at with a credit card. Please also note that there is a 2.5 percent bank fee assessed for credit and debit card payments made online. You may pay with an electronic (e-check) online with your checking account information (account and routing number) at no charge.

Payment plans should be set up by May 10 if you would like to make four monthly payments.  The due date for summer tuition is May 29, 2019.
