FSU provides the billing statements electronically via Ferris360 to students and their authorized users. The first electronic billing notification is sent about a month before the semester begins to the FSU student email address and to the authorized user email address on file. Any subsequent billing statements throughout the semester are sent electronically monthly. Students, remember to set up authorized user access in E-bill for those that would need access to your billing statement. This authorized user access would allow others to receive monthly emails regarding your consolidated student tuition bill, see the detailed statement, and pay online using a checking or savings account or credit card. The consolidated student bill can include charges such as tuition, room and board, books, parking permits, phone service, software charges, health center charges, and library fines.
Students can pay the full balance of the charges that are due or they can choose a payment plan. There is a one-time per semester $30 payment plan charge. For more detailed information on payment options including due dates, visit the Student Account Payment Options page.

basis for prior balances by contacting our office.

A student must present a valid Bulldog student ID card in order to receive the cash advance. Students may receive 3 cash advances a semester, but no more than once every thirty days and the previous cash advance has been paid.

Due to increasing costs to process credit card transactions, FSU has contracted with a third-party company, Touchnet PayPath, to provide credit card processing services for consolidated student accounts. By contracting with PayPath, FSU can receive the full amount of the payment and is no longer responsible for the processing fees. The fee is being charged by the third-party processor, not FSU. This will provide nearly $500,000 in annual savings for the University. For more information on the service fee, visit the service fee page.
