Orange Arrow Payment Awards and Payment Options

Remitted Tuition | Graduate Award | Veteran's Benefit | Dependency Benefit | Financial Aid | Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan | Sponsoring Agency / Direct Bill | Student Deferred Payment Plan | Payment in Full | Choosing Your Payment Option | Making Your Payment


Payment awards are forms of payments earned through employment or service at Syracuse University.
Payment options are forms of payments accepted by Syracuse University to pay any balance due at the time of registration.  Details of each payment award and option available to UC and Distance Learning students is explained below.

Remitted Tuition - payment award
(Employee, Spouse/Same Sex Domestic Partner)
SU Remitted Tuition Benefit (RTB) is effective for the academic year, beginning with the fall semester. Employees and spouses/same-sex domestic partners who do not use all hours available to them during the academic year may be eligible to use up to six (6) credits during the following summer. Credits not used during the academic year or following summer are forfeited. There are no additional benefits available or awarded exclusively for summer. Please consult Human Resources for detailed information and eligibility requirements related to remitted tuition. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure RTB benefit eligibility with Human Resources prior to registration.

Non-covered tuition expenses (including fees) are the responsibility of the student and payment is due at the time of registration. These charges cannot be deferred nor are they covered by the benefit. Spouses and same sex domestic partners of SU employees who qualify for benefits under the University's Remitted Tuition Policy will receive a tuition waiver of 85 percent and must make suitable payment arrangements for the remaining 15 percent, as well as pay all applicable fees.

Courses will not be dropped after the financial drop deadline due to nonreceipt of this benefit or changes in coverage after the term begins. Employees who are not approved for non-tax status will not retain RTB credits associated with classes dropped after the financial drop deadline.

The University reserves the right to refuse or restrict the use of SU remitted tuition for certain workshop courses, noncredit courses, and special programs.

Graduate Award - payment award
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that a graduate award is available to use for the term of registration. If you have questions, you can verify eligibility by reviewing your original award letter or contacting the academic unit that offered the award.

Graduate awards apply toward tuition only. Fees are the student’s responsibility and must be paid for at the time of registration. Graduate awards may be applied to tuition charges for graduate, extended
campus, and, in rare cases, undergraduate courses pre-approved by the scholar's advisor. Approval for use of awards for undergraduate courses must be sought from the academic unit that offered the award.
                                               
The graduate award may not be applied to the following:  noncredit courses, courses of individual instruction such as applied music (with the exception of scholars majoring in music); workshop courses where fees normally cover expenses other than tuition; courses of physical education that will not count toward degree requirements; and courses taken at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry or Upstate Medical Center at Syracuse, unless certified as required in a degree program. Graduate awards may not be used for auditing courses.

It is your responsibility to verify the conditions of your graduate award. You are responsible to pay for any class that is not covered. Please note that academic deadlines cannot be extended. Should you attend a class for any reason after the University’s official financial drop deadline for that class, you will be responsible for the tuition and fees associated with that class.  There is NO EXCEPTION to this deadline for financial or academic reasons.

Veteran’s Benefit (VA) - payment award     
Students eligible for this payment award are covered under the Veterans Post-9/11 GI bill. Students should visit the SU Veterans Resource Center web site at veterans.syr.edu/ for detailed information regarding eligibility and assistance.   

Vocational Rehabilitation benefits are administered as Sponsoring Agency/Direct Bill. You must choose the Sponsoring Agency/Direct Bill payment option.

Contact the Veterans Resource Center at 315-443-0358 or via email at veterans@syr.edu if you have any questions related to veteran benefits.

Dependency Benefit - payment award
The student must be a dependent of an SU Faculty/Staff member who has been approved for dependency tuition benefits for the semester of registration through Human Resources. It is the employee’s responsibility to ensure employee benefit eligibility with Human Resources prior to registration. Only matriculated SU undergraduate students registered for six (6) or more credit hours in a semester are eligible for this payment award. Non-covered expenses are the responsibility of the student. Any loss of coverage may result in student responsibility for the entire semester tuition and expenses. Courses will not be dropped to avoid financial penalty after the financial drop deadline due to non-receipt or loss of this benefit. For information regarding dependency benefits, go to humanresources.syr.edu/benefits/, or contact Human Resources at
315-443-4042.

Financial Aid - payment option
If you plan to use financial aid as a form of payment when registering, you must meet all the criteria necessary to be awarded financial aid. That includes, but is not limited to, completing your Financial Aid TO DO LIST(S) on MySlice before you register. For information, go to UC Financial Aid. For assistance, please e-mail UC Financial Aid at finaid@uc.syr.edu or call 315-443-3261.

You are responsible to pay all charges not covered by financial aid. You will be billed for uncovered charges.

Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan - payment option
Students whose employer offers a tuition reimbursement program may qualify for the Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan. This payment option is available to UC and Distance Learning students who are taking credit classes that meet during the University's published official term. This payment option allows the student a tuition payment deferral until the last billing date of the semester. Payment is due approximately 20 calendar days from the end of the University's official semester end date. This may not be the date that your specific classes end. Specific payment terms and participation rules are noted on the Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan Applications (Summer 2014 or Fall 2014). 

To be eligible, an Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan Application must be completed every semester by the student and the student's employer, and submitted within seven (7) business days of registering.  Failure to do so will result in cancellation of your registration. Mail the application to UC Bursar & Registration Office, 700 University Ave., Room 103, Syracuse, NY 13244-2530, or fax to 315-443-3255.  For extenuating circumstances that prohibit you from meeting this deadline, you must speak with your UC Student Services Coordinator by the deadline date.

Neither non-reimbursement by an employer nor non-receipt of a grade are exceptions to the payment due date. Extensions will not be granted.  Continued eligibility in this payment plan is contingent upon a satisfactory payment history. Syracuse University reserves the right to deny continued participation to anyone who has not complied with the terms on the Employer Tuition Reimbursement Plan Application.
