How do I make a payment.

Online Payments (Recommended Method of Payment for Out-of-Pocket Payments)

SJU suggests making your payments online, especially when you are paying on or after the tuition due date. Paying online with a checking account is easy and no additional fees are applied. If you wish to pay with a credit card, please note that a 2.99% convenience fee will be applied. All online payments made through the directions in the link below will feed directly to the student's account.

Credit/Debit Card Payments

Saint Joseph's University has partnered with an outside company, TMS, to provide credit and debit card payment options for students. This will allow students to make credit or debit card payments through a third party, which assesses a 2.99% convenience fee. Please note that your credit card payment will be applied to your account within 48 business hours.

Online Check Payments

Saint Joseph's University has partnered with an outside company, TMS, to provide an electronic check payment option. This will allow students to make payment through a third party, which will withdrawal funds directly from a checking or savings account at no additional cost to the student. Please note that your checking payment will be applied to your account within 48 business hours.

You can view your Tuition Account Online and make a payment by either of the methods below:

Log into The Nest

  • Go to Tuition & Aid page
    • Under the My Account section review your current balance due.
    • Select the Semester for which you are making a payment.
    • Chose Pay by Credit Card or Pay by echeck.

Go directly to Tuition Management Systems (TMS) Website (

  • You will need the Student Name and Student SJU ID#
  • Go to the "Make a Payment" section.


If you are the parent/guardian/tuiton payer of a student, please have your student assign you access to view and pay their bill through their SJU ebill portal. Once the student has assigned you access, you will receive an email confirming your log-in.  Click here to proceed directly to the parent/other assigned user Log-in. If you want to make a payment only (and not view the bill), you may click here.


Check Payment:

SJU suggests online payments, as paper checks take more time to process and to be put on the account. Online payments made with a checking account (using your routing and account numbers) do NOT incur a convenience fee. The convenience fee is only applied when using a credit card.

In order for your check to be processed properly, please send only your check. Always include your name and your 8 digit student ID # in the memo line of the check. Checks should be made payable to "Saint Joseph's University" and sent to:

St. Joseph's University

Attn: Office of the Bursar

Barbelin Room 122

5600 City Avenue

Philadelphia PA 19131


Please note that including other documents, or sending the check via certified delivery will delay the processing of your payment.
