Payment Options

Puget Sound offers several options for payment. Payment may be made by electronic check, check or cash; we are unable to accept credit cards.

Option 1: Payment in full

  • Payment for each semester's balance due must be paid in full by the payment deadline.

Option 2: Payment Plan

  • The payment plan allows for extended payments of the semester balance due across the months of the term. There is an $80 participation fee for using the extended payment plan. The first payment of the plan is due on August 5 for fall and January 5 for spring, with additional payments due the fifth or sixth of each month, as indicated on your payment plan detail. 1% late fees will be assessed for any payment not received by the due date. Late fees are cumulative. Students must enroll for payment plans through their Student Center in Cascade. Enrollment must occur before the first payment due date of the semester.

Option 3: PLUS or Private Education Loan

  • Parents or students may apply for loan funds to help cover all or a portion of the balance due. Loans must be applied for and approved prior to the payment deadline. PLUS Loan borrowers - please add the 4.2% origination fee to the amount needed.
