- Student activity and health fees are mandatory for all full-time enrolled students and are not refundable in the event a student withdraws (please refer to Refunds section).
- Students and their families should plan for the cost of textbooks as well as additional personal costs including laundry, supplies, transportation, organizational dues and spending money.
- Interest is charged at 1.5 percent per month on the unpaid past-due balance including any accumulated interest. A past-due balance is the previous balance less any payments received during the month and does not include current month charges. The university will waive late charges for pending financial aid (not including campus employment awards –– Federal Work Study) processed by the Susquehanna University Office of Financial Aid before payment due dates. Students are responsible for payment of all costs, which may include accrued interest charges, collection fees and attorney fees, incurred by the university in collecting balances.
- Other Fees. Additional fees may be charged for individual courses. Students pay an additional $300 per semester for individual music lessons (one-half hour per week) that are not required to complete their degree. Music fees are posted to student accounts by the end of September for the fall semester and the end of February for the spring semester.
