Paper bills are no longer mailed. E-bills will be sent to your Texas State e-mail address. You may also add an alternate e-mail address and/or authorized users to receive your billing information. Billing can be viewed and alternate e-mail address /authorized users added on our Billing and Payment site.
As a courtesy, reminders are sent to your Texas State e-mail account(s), however, it is the student's responsibility to make payment by the due dates.
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.
Your authorized financial aid, if available, will be automatically applied to your registration bill.
If you have aid in excess of your registration bill, only the aid sufficient to cover your registration charges will be reflected on your registration bill.
If your aid is not sufficient to cover the total cost of your tuition you will be required to pay the difference or enroll in an installment plan.
If the amount due on your account is $0 or less, and you do not wish to attend the term in which you are enrolled, 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.

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.
