Payment Plan Options

There are two payment plan options. There is a $30 service fee for either plan. Participation in either payment plan does not guarantee the ability to register for subsequent terms. The registration hold is automatically removed after payment in full is received.

St. Cloud State Basic Payment Plan

This plan is self-monitored. You are responsible for making payments by the deadlines listed above. You will not receive a statement reminding you that a payment is due.

Nelnet Business Solutions e-Cashier Payment Plan

Nelnet Business Solutions, Inc. (NBS) is an external payment plan provider and partner with St. Cloud State University. If you choose to use NBS, you will arrange for automatic monthly payments with or without a down payment. Monthly payments can be withdrawn from your checking or savings account or charged to your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. Participants may update demographic and account information online. Go to the NelNet Plan link in your e-Services account under "Billing & Payments" to sign up for or to manage a current plan. 

How to Make a Payment


Credit card and e-check payments can be made online in e-services.

Make a Payment in e-services

Phone, Check or Money Order

Mail payments by check or money order to:

St. Cloud State University
Attn:  Cashier
Administrative Services 123
720 4th Avenue South
St. Cloud, MN 56301
(320) 308-4012

Include student ID or StarID on all payments.

In Person

Stop in the Administrative Services (AS) Building, Room 123, to make a payment (cash, check, money order, or credit card). 

Include student ID or StarID on all payments.

Third Party

When tuition and fees are billed to another federal/state/county agency or an employer, the sponsoring agency is called a third party. Authorization must be submitted to Business Services (720 4th Ave S St. Cloud MN  56301-4498 or faxed to 320-308-5113) before the due date so classes do not get dropped in the registration cancellation for non-payment process. 

Authorizations are posted to your financial aid award as they are received, but will credited to your bill at the same time other financial aid is applied. If you look on-line and the third party award does not appear on your financial aid account, check with the sponsoring agency before contacting Business Services at 320-308-4008.

  • Enter the information (name and email address) of the person you wish to give access to your bill.
  • Click "Send or Review Access Request."
  • Both you and the person you are giving access to will receive an email from Minnesota State with instructions on how to activate the access.

  • Once logged in, the person should be able to make a payment on your account.

Should you have questions or difficulties with this process, please contact the SCSU Business Services Office.

Unpaid Balance Hold

An unpaid balance hold is placed on a student account by the Business Services Office when an unpaid balance exists for the current or a previous term after the due dates. A hold prevents a student from registering for classes in subsequent terms, or from obtaining transcripts and diplomas.

Holds will remain on a student's account until the past due balance is paid in full. Once the balance is paid, the hold will automatically be removed. 

Hold exceptions can only be made at the discretion of the Director of Student Accounts in the Business Services Office
