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; August 15 for fall and January 15 for spring. Please check the account balance monthly to pay for additional fees that may be added throughout the semester. Accounts with charges not paid by the due date will be charged a $25 late fee each month payment is not received.

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 15 for fall and January 15 for spring, with additional payments due the fifteenth of each month, as indicated on your payment plan detail. A $25 late fee will be charged for monthly installments not paid in full and payments not received by the due date.  Authorized Users can enroll in a payment plan in Bill & Payment. Enrollment must occur before the first payment due date of the semester.  Students can also sign up for payment plans through their Bill and Payment link.

  • 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 4.272% origination fee to the amount needed.
