You are required to take action, either by making payment in full or enrollment in a payment plan, by the designated registration due date. You may view your payment options here.
If your billing statement presents a $0 or (-) negative balance, it may be due to Estimated Financial Aid on your account.
Students who have sufficient aid to cover 100% of tuition, fees, room, and board will no longer be required to take action and apply their aid as payment.Estimated Financial Aid is expected to apply to your account once the Financial Aid Office disburses the aid 10 days prior to the start of the semester. For more information, please go to Financial Aid & Scholarships .
IMPORTANT CHANGE: If the amount due on your account is $0 or less and you do not wish to attend the term, you must complete an official withdrawal form with the Registrar's Office. Failure to do so may result in receiving an 'F' for the term.
All students may select our standard installment plan. For information about our payment plan, please click here.
For students who do not have sufficient resources (financial aid, tuition adjustment, personal funds) to cover the minimum percentage for the payment plan, and who meet additional eligibility requirements, may apply for our Emergency Loan Program.

Credit card usage and regulations have increased tremendously over the past few years. In an effort to keep up with the volume and credit card regulations, Texas State had considered dropping credit card payments for tuition and student fee payments. However, we recognized that many students and families appreciate the convenience of using this payment mechanism. By using the TouchNet web-based system, the people who benefit from the convenience of the use of the credit card may pay in that manner.
We accept VISA, Master Card, American Express, Discover and Diners Club
NOTE: Effective May 1, 2012 a 2.75% convenience fee will be assessed for all credit card transactions, and credit card payments in person will not be allowed.
