When it's Time to Pay, You Have Options

Federal financial aid is available for USU Online students. Once admitted to USU, you can submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For more information and learn about other financial options, visit

In addition, you can use USU's General Scholarship Application to explore other institutional and private scholarship opportunities. The application uses your student information to match you to scholarships. You’ll see which scholarships you already qualify for and simply need to hit the apply button. You'll also see partial matches, which usually require you to provide other documentation such as a writing sample or resume.

To pay tuition and see your balance, visit the Registrar's website. If you need, you can split your balance into a series of payments due throughout the semester.
