Paying and Reading Your SU Bill

The mission of the Bursar Office is to facilitate the registration of every student in a manner that serves the best interests of the students and the University alike.

The first spring semester electronic bill (e-bill) is created in November and an email notification is sent when the bill is available to view online. If you are on the Monthly Payment Plan, you may pay spring over six months. Otherwise, payment will be due on December 1, 2017. To confirm the student’s spring registration, your Bursar student account must be current. This means either paid in full or covered by anticipated financial aid (aid that has been awarded but not disbursed). Accounts on the Monthly Payment Plan are billed monthly and installments payments must be current as well to confirm registration.

Student Account and related financial information is available via Myslice.syr.edu.  Share My Access is a feature used to set up parents/guardians to receive notifications of e-bills. This allows students to provide their parents/guardians with their own account and password necessary to view financial information online, as well as other University information.

For more information on tuition, financial aid, billing, and refunds please visit the Bursar Office website or email bursar@syr.edu.
