How to Pay

How to pay the application fee

After completing the online application, follow the online instructions to pay the $150 non-refundable application fee by credit card.


How and when to pay tuition

Students who are admitted will receive a tuition payment email with directions on how to pay tuition for their first term. (F-1 students will receive their I-20 package after we receive their full tuition payment for their first term)

Acceptable methods of payment include credit card, cashier’s check, money order, and wire transfer. The tuition payment email will have detailed payment instructions.


Payments for other services

We only accept application and tuition fees. Please do not send your housing payments, tuition for multiple terms, or payments for any other services to our office by check or wire transfer. Incorrect or unexpected payments sent to International Gateways will be returned to the student and are subject to a 15 percent financial processing fee. Unfortunately, these funds cannot be forwarded to other individuals or SJSU departments, including housing.
