How To Make Payments

There are several different methods for making future housing payments listed below. All payments go directly to Seawolf Service Center located in Salazar Hall, first floor. The mailing address is Seawolf Service Center, 1801 East Cotati Avenue, Rohnert Park, CA 94928.        

  • Paying by Credit Card or Debit Card. To pay on-line, you must log into SSU Online Services and click on the Payment button. Payments on student accounts made online by credit or debit card will be charged a 2.75% non-refundable service fee by our third party provider, CASHNet® SmartPay. There are several simple options for students to avoid this fee. Student fees paid by financial aid will not be impacted by this change. For additional information, visit Credit Card Service Fee FAQ.

  • Paying by Check. Make checks payable to Sonoma State University. Write the student’s name and University number on the check.

  • The University accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.

  • Paying by eCheck. To pay on-line, you must log into SSU Online Services and click on the Payment button. Then you can choose eCheck.


Guest Access to Student Account

Students are able to give parents or other supporters access to their account information, view/print statements, and make payments or add Wolfbucks. The Guest access also allows for billing notification emails to be send directly to the guest email address.

Late Fees

Licensees who are late in payment of any housing rent or food will be assessed a fee of $30 per late payment. Payments received after the 10th of the month are considered late. Three or more late payments may jeopardize your campus housing status. Notification of the late fee will be sent via email to your SSU email account informing you to pay your outstanding balance by a certain date. Unpaid accounts will be forwarded to a collection agency by the University, after numerous attempts of trying to collect the debt. All agency collection fees plus the unpaid debt are the responsibility of the account holder.
