Payments

Housing costs are billed per term to the student account at the beginning of each academic quarter. Students who receive financial aid will have their award first applied toward their tuition and then toward housing. Students may elect to pay off any remaining balance in full at the beginning of the term or enroll in the PSU Payment Plan.

The PSU Payment Plan allows students the flexibility to pay off their account balance in three monthly installments throughout the term. All payments can be made online via Banweb or paid in person with cash or check at the Cashiers Office. More information about payments and the PSU Payment Plan can be found at Student Financial Services.

All rates include: electric, water, gas, wireless internet.  Full term rates are billed at the beginning of each term. When monthly costs are shown, they are intended to help compare options.
