Fall 2022 Undergraduate Tuition Billing
Fall 2022 undergraduate student tuition bills will be made available online, through SMUpay, on July 26, 2022 and the payment due date is August 12, 2022. Be sure to check your SMU email account frequently to avoid missing important information, including billing notifications. Be sure to add your parent(s)/guardian(s) as authorized payers so they may receive emailed notifications when bills are available (see “Parent/Guardian Access to Student Records (my.SMU) and Authorized Payer Portal (SMUpay)” below).
Important: Depending on whether you have registered for all of your classes at the time of the July billing, your bill may only reflect a portion of your full semester charges. Please be sure to log in to SMUpay regularly to view your updated balance if you register for classes on or after July 25.
Parent/Guardian Access to Student Records (my.SMU) and Authorized Payer Portal (SMUpay)
If you are a parent/guardian and would like to gain access to your student’s education records (my.SMU), please refer to the Release of Education Records page here. If you are a parent/guardian who would like to receive billing notifications and become authorized by your student to make payments on his or her behalf, your student must first set you up as an authorized payer (SMUpay) by following instructions found here.
Note: Please refer to our FAQs for answers to questions we frequently receive from students and families.
Change in Credit Card Service Fee
Due to fee increases imposed on our third-party payment processor, Nelnet Campus Commerce, the non-refundable credit card service fee will increase from 2.75% to 2.85%, effective June 1, 2022. This credit card service fee is added to the total credit card payment as a separate transaction and is charged to you by our payment processor; SMU does not receive any portion of this service fee. Please keep in mind that this fee increase applies to all credit card payments, including those made toward monthly payment plans.
