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 convenience 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 Aug.15, 2018 to avoid schedule cancellation for non-payment.

  • Down payment of 25 percent + $75 administration fee is due by Aug. 15, 2018
  • Second installment of 25 percent is due on Sept. 10, 2018
  • Third installment of 25 percent is due on Oct. 10, 2018
  • Fourth installment of 25 percent is due on Nov. 10, 2018

Payment is required to set up a payment plan. Financial Aid awards received after the payment plan is established will reduce the next installment payment(s) due.

Payments received after the due date are subject to $100 late fee per late payment. Late payments will result in a hold on your student account.
