Payments/Payment Plan Options   

Payments must be received by the due date listed on the bill issued to registered students to avoid assessment of a late fee. A late fee of $250.00 will be assessed to all unpaid balances.


Electronic billing is the official means of distributing student bills. Each time a bill is available, an e-mail will be sent to student's Seton Hall University e-mail account. This will also be sent to any additional "billing" e-mail address students have designated for a third party, such as a parent or guardian. Students can access their e-bill through the PirateNet/LawNet portal.

Non-receipt of your bill does not excuse you from meeting scheduled deadlines and late penalties. All students making adjustments after the payment is due will be required to pay the difference in-person.

It is a student's responsibility to clear any unpaid balance with the Bursar's Office PRIOR TO registering via the web. If you have a current balance, you will be automatically blocked from registering for courses and will be referred to the Bursar's Office. This will result in having to restart the registration process (if cleared by the Bursar to register) and will decrease your chances of enrolling in your desired courses.

Payment due dates as follows:

The 2015 Summer Semester due date is May 27, 2015.
The 2015 Fall Semester due date is August 2, 2015.
The 2016 Spring Semester due date is December 22, 2015.

Students who default on deferred payment arrangements will be assessed late fees and continue to accrue until payment in full is received.


Payment in full is required by the bill's due date. Any amounts unpaid after this date are subject to late fees. A maximum of $250 per semester in late fees will be assessed to accounts unpaid beyond the due date for each term.


Checks returned unpaid from a bank for any reason are subject to a $35 returned check fee in addition to late fees. All students are notified by an e-mail or letter of any returned checks received by the Bursar. A returned e-check fee of $15 applies to any online check payments.

The student will not be allowed to re-register for classes until after the account is settled. A registration hold will be placed on the student's record until the balance is resolved through an alternate payment method. Alternate payment options are credit card, money order or cashier/bank check.

Tuition Reimbursement:

Students who receive tuition reimbursement from their employers may obtain and complete a "Tuition Reimbursement" form (pdf) here. The completed form must then be verified by the Registrar and Bursar prior to submission to the student's employer.
