Payment Options

All students are bound by the payment due date (determined by the initial registration date) whether or not a computerized bill is re­ceived. Students who register after the officially designated pay­ment due date must be prepared to pay or make appropriate payment arrangements by the deadline. Students who register or pay after the initial registration and payment period may incur late fees. Payment dates can be found on the College’s website.

Financial Aid

The term ‘financial aid’ refers to all forms of federal and state aid programs, federal loans, institutional aid and scholarships, and external scholarships. Students must complete the appropriate FAFSA application in order to apply for financial aid. A financial aid award letter will be mailed once the College receives all necessary information and determines the student’s eligibility. Students must return a copy of the award letter indicating the aid and loans they plan to accept or decline.

Only validated financial aid awards will appear on invoices. If there are any discrepancies or aid is missing, contact the Bursar office at 718.489.5255, or by e‑mail at sfs@sfc.edu. Balances not covered by financial aid must be paid by the designated due date.

International Payments

St. Francis College has partnered with Flywire to streamline the fee payment process for our international students and payers. Flywire offers multiple payment options, excellent foreign exchange rates and allows you to pay from almost any country. They will ensure that your payment arrives safely and accurately.

Third-Party Billing

Students may submit third-party vouchers by the official payment due date. Vouchers will only be accepted in lieu of payment as long as the sponsoring agent assumes responsibility for payment upon receiving an invoice from the College. Students are expected to make appropriate arrangements if a third party fails to pay any portion of the bill.

Employer-sponsored tuition reimbursement programs do not qualify as third-party billing. Companies that do not pay before final grades are recorded may not sponsor students for third-party billing. In such cases, students must pay out of pocket and seek reimbursement through their employer or sponsor.

Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan Refunds

If a Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan exceeds the student's College charges, the refund will be made to the parent borrower unless the parent has indicated otherwise on the loan application form allowing the credit to be refunded to the student.

Wire Transfer

SFC Awards
