Types of Financial Aid
View your scholarships, grants, and loans in the Financial Aid section of your Student Account or on your E-bill (your federal aid will appear as pending until the start of classes each semester). Please remember that your aid must be accepted on The Nest each academic year.
To ensure all appropriate financial aid is awarded to you, please make sure to do the following:
- Sign the Master Promissory Note.
- Complete Entrance Counseling.
Ways To Pay
Saint Joseph's University recommends making your payments online to ensure quicker processing of your payments. To pay online with a checking account (using your routing and account numbers) is easy, and no additional fees are applied.
NOTE: THIS SYSTEM DOES NOT ACCEPT MONEY MARKET OR INVESTMENTS ACCOUNTS. ONLY REGULAR SAVINGS AND/OR CHECKING ACCOUNTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
If you wish to pay with a credit card, please note that a convenience fee (approx. 2.99%) will be applied. All online payments will be posted immediately to the student’s account.
Pay by Check
In order for your paper check to be processed properly, please include the bottom portion of your remittance from your Electronic Bill with your check. Always include your name and your 8 digit student ID # in the memo line of the check.
Checks should be made payable to “Saint Joseph’s University” and mailed to:
SAINT JOSEPH’S UNIVERSITY
OFFICE OF STUDENT ACCOUNTS
5600 CITY AVENUE – BL-122
PHILADELPHIA, PA 19131-1395
Please note that not including the remittance slip, including other documents besides the remittance slip, or sending the check via certified delivery will delay the processing of your payment.
Pay by Wire Transfers
Please contact The Office of Student Accounts at email@example.com for information on how to make a wire transfer payment.
Payment plans are offered on a per-semester basis by Nelnet. Please note that there are deadlines for enrollment and that the plans begin in advance of the semester. Please note that late enrollment in a payment plan will require your making “catch-up payments” at the time of enrollment and thus your initial payment would be larger. More detailed information on how to set up a payment plan can be found here.
For more information regarding enrollment fees and deadlines, please contact The Office of Student Accounts at 610-660-2400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saint Joseph's University offers flexible payment plans through Nelnet. The plans vary in length to allow you to pick a plan that works best for you.
