Payment Options

By registering for classes, a student agrees to pay all tuition and required fees associated with their registration, optional services and other fees, whether paying in full or utilizing the Payment Plan. Failure to pay tuition, fees, or other charges may result in penalties, late fees, or possible cancellation. Unpaid tuition, fees, and other charges are subject to Tarleton State University's collection policy and the student will be responsible for all expenses incurred to collect the account.

Tarleton State University Financial Responsibility Agreement

If you decide not to attend for the semester or session, you must drop your course(s) thru DuckTrax or inform the Registrar's Office in person or in writing before the due date. Otherwise, you may be held responsible for tuition and fees and/or any financial aid that has posted to your account and you will receive grades of "F."

Payments accepted in Texan Bill Pay include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Electronic Check, and Debit Card. Beginning July 15, 2018, payments made by credit card will be assessed a 2.85% service fee. To pay by eCheck, you will need to provide a US Bank checking account number and routing number. There is not a service fee associated with payments made by eCheck(ACH). Both methods are simple and secure.

Tarleton State University offers an interest-free monthly payment plan to students and parents at the beginning of each semester. Students and parents can make payments under each of the plans in advance at any time during a semester; however the $20.00 fee is non-refundable. Payments can be scheduled when setting up the payment plan.

PLEASE NOTE: Adding classes or charges will increase the amount that is due at each payment.


Payment must be made by the payment deadline or your registration may be canceled due to non-payment. A $100 reinstatement fee will be assessed when re-enrolling.

Notice to all Students

If you deliver a check in-person or mail it to the University, your paper check will be converted to an electronic Automated Clearing House (ACH) transaction. For your reconciliation purposes, these checks will now appear on your monthly bank statement as an electronic debit.

If you do not wish to have your account electronically debited, please speak with the Business Office staff concerning your options when paying by check.
