Payment Information


EBill is SFA’s electronic billing system. Prior to and throughout each semester or term, billing notifications are e-mailed to students' SFA Jacks e-mail addresses alerting them that their bills are available for viewing online on eBill. No bills are mailed through the post office.

Online bill payment is accomplished through the eBill system. EBill provides secure access to online Business Office services where students can pay and manage their SFA accounts. Through eBill, students can:

  • View billing statements
  • View current due dates and amounts
  • Make payments via credit card, debit card or electronic check from checking or savings accounts
  • Schedule future one-time or recurring automatic payments
  • Enroll in an Installment Payment Plan
  • Establish Authorized Users (authorize others to access and pay their SFA bill)

Students can authorize parents and others to access and pay their account by establishing “Authorized Users” on the eBill system. Students may add or remove Authorized Users at any time. The new Authorized User will receive an e-mail notification containing a Username, temporary Password, and login instructions. NOTE: An Authorized User must have an e-mail address.

Students may opt to pay their bills in installments by enrolling in the Installment Payment Plan each semester or summer term (not available for Maymester). The Payment Plan consists of four installments of approximately 1/4 each of tuition, fees, room, and board, plus all non-deferrable fees. The first installment is due prior to the first class day of the semester/term. The remaining installments will be due throughout the semester/term. The exact amounts due and specific due dates will be shown on the Payment Plans tab of eBill.

A non-refundable fee for the Installment Payment Plan will be charged to the student’s account. A late fee will be assessed on each late installment payment.

NOTE: All balances from prior terms must be paid in full to enroll in an Installment Payment Plan.

To enroll in the Installment Payment Plan:

  • Login to mySFA
  • Click the Billing tab
  • Under payment options, select Installment Plans in eBill
  • Follow the instructions

Students receiving short-term loans must enroll in an Installment Payment Plan and have a $0 previous balance. The short-term loan is designed to pay an amount sufficient to keep the student from being dropped from classes. It will not pay room or board charges. Students desiring short-term loans should go to or contact the Financial Aid Office (936-468-2403) for more information.

To apply for a short-term loan:

  • Login to mySFA
  • Click the Billing tab
  • Under payment options, select Short Term Loans

If approved, the short-term loan will post to the student's bill overnight.


Specific dates and deadlines are posted on the Business Office Dates and Deadlines webpage.


Returned payments include any form of payment returned for any reason. A student whose payment is returned for any reason will incur a fee. The student may not register for a future term until the bill is paid in full.
