Billing and Payments FAQs
- How will I receive my bill?
Seton Hall sends electronic bills or 'e-Bills' ONLY. Each time an e-Bill is generated, an e-mail will be sent to your SHU e-mail. It is important to log on to PirateNet and view your account each time you receive this notice.
- Can I allow someone else to view and pay my
Yes. Click here for instructions and videos on How to Allow Someone Else to Pay my Bill. The person you add will be able to view and pay your e-Bill as well as receive notification each time your new e-Bill is available.
- When will I receive my e-Bill?
The first e-bill for each semester is sent before classes begin:
Fall Semester Payment Due: August 8
Spring Semester Payment Due: December 22

Thereafter, e-bills are only sent if you have a balance due or an
adjustment was made to your account. If you register after the
first e-bill is sent, you will receive one the next month. If you
make any changes to your registration, you should always log onto
PirateNet to check your account. Please note, an e-bill will not
be generated if you are not registered for classes.

If you receive tuition reimbursement directly from your employer, you
are still required to pay your tuition bill in the same manner as all
other students. Reimbursement agreements are solely between the student

- I receive funding that requires an invoice or voucher to be submitted by
Seton Hall University. When will my letter of credit, payment voucher,
or invoice be sent to my third party payer?
Invoices cannot be submitted to any third party payers until after the
Add/Drop period is over. Once your invoice and/or voucher is submitted
by SHU to your third party, you will see a notice appear on your bill
such as “Invoiced Third Party.” Please be sure that we are aware of your
needs and have a copy of your Letter of Credit or other required
paperwork prior to the Add/Drop period to expedite this process. Late
fees are applicable to any balance due that is not covered by your
funding. If there is a delay in funding beyond 30 days of SHU
submitting, you may be responsible and required to pay late fees.
- What if I register for courses, add a meal plan or make
other changes that effect the amount I owe after the semester due date,
should I wait for a bill?
No. Students are responsible for ensuring their accounts are fully paid
throughout the semester. Non-receipt of a bill is not
grounds for non-payment or late payment of your
account. Payment for changes in tuition, room and
board, technology or computing fees, as well as any fines or fees
incurred during the semester, is due immediately. Students can view
their bursar account online anytime using the PirateNet portal.

No. You are required to pay the amount reflected on your bill by the

means there are outstanding requirements you or your parent(s) may need
to complete. Questions regarding your financial aid should be directed
If your bill does not reflect your correct meal plan and room charges,
please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

- What should I do if my semester bill is due but I am still
in the financial aid verification process and don't know my financial
aid award amount?
We recommend you enroll in the payment plan and begin to remit
payments. When your financial aid is verified, you can contact email@example.com to recalculate your
TuitionPay payment plan accordingly.

- Why hasn’t my SHU Tuition Remission benefit been applied yet?
The tuition remission award is often posted to the financial aid packages late in the term, sometimes after the bill due date. Regardless of posting, the student is still responsible for paying all non-tuition charges such as fees and room and board by the bill due date or a late fee may be applied to the account. For further questions regarding Tuition Remission or if you do not see it reflected on your bill, please visit the Financial Aid or Human Resources websites for more information.
- Late fees are applied to student accounts with a past due balance. Late Fees are applied as follows:
- Current Students: Late fees are applied twice per semester. Each late fee is posted in the amount of 7.5% of the past due balance. The
maximum per semester is $250.
- Nonregistered Students: Late fees are applied once per semester. Each late fee is posted in the amount of 15% of the past due balance. The maximum per semester is $250.
Late Fee Appeals:
Students may appeal late fees only after the past-due balance has been paid in full. To appeal a late fee, students must send an e-mail to the Bursar’s Office e-mail (email@example.com) explaining the reasoning for the late payment. Students who have not had any prior late fees may be eligible to have their most recent late fee waived as a One-Time Courtesy.
