September 18, 2023 (Monday) - Fall 2023 tuition payment deadline
If there are NO other checklist items on a student's To Do List, they should receive their financial aid disbursement on Wednesday (August 16, 2023) - Our first disbursement date for Fall 2023 semester. We will always disburse their aid towards tuition charges first and any additional University fees after that.
As shown in the screenshots above, our office will usually post a “Balance Due Deferred By FA” item on a student's Notifications or Holds & Alerts sections of their SF State Gateway and Student Center. However, for this Fall 2023 semester, we did not activate this alert since the tuition payment deadline for ALL students have been deferred (Delayed) to Monday - September 18, 2023.

If a student/parent decides to pay the on-campus housing fees out of pocket, then they must work with Housing Office directly regarding that process. Please click on the link provided down below regarding how to contact their office.
