The Short Term Loan is an alternative payment method available to students and their parents electing not to pay the full amount of their tuition and fees on the regularly scheduled payment due date. Under this no interest loan option, you pay a first installment of a percentage of the total balance due on your account plus a $10.00 processing fee. The remaining balance is then emailed to the students’s official notifications box on MySSU by the Bursar’s Office in additional installment(s) later in the semester.
Payment Due Dates
The first installment on the short term loan is due on the regularly scheduled payment due date. For students participating in early registration, this date is specified in your billing information and on your statement. For students participating in late registration, the first installment is due at the time of your registration.
