The rates listed are based on the full academic year, which begins in August and ends in May. Charges are applied to student's accounts in July for the Fall semester and December for the Spring semester. Costs include the $300 Housing Down Payment paid when applying to live on campus.
Billing Statements & Making Payments
Student Billing Statements, known as "eBills," are issued electronically at the beginning of the month. The eBills are emailed to your SSU Email address and a variety of payment options are accepted. Students will receive an email notification to their SSU email address each time an eBill is generated.
The semester charges can be paid in full or in 4 installments starting August 1 for the Fall term and January 1 for the Spring term. There are several different methods for making future housing payments. Please see the How to Make Payments website for more information. Failure to pay the amount on or before the due date will result in action by the University including, but not limited to, eviction, academic holds, payment due in full, and/or late fees.
On Campus Rates

Meal Plan, Dining Dollars & Wolf Bucks
Culinary Services Meal Plan
Meal plans provide opportunities to connect with peers over a fresh cooked meal or give you access to grab a quick bite between classes and meetings. Incoming first-year first-time freshmen are required to participate in the Seawolf All Access meal plan.
- 2023/2024 All Access meal Plan cost of $6,405 ($3,328 for Fall, $3077 for Spring) was included in the published 2023/2024 rates.
Incoming transfer students and continuing SSU students are not required to participate in a meal plan but may purchase a meal plan. Please see the Culinary Services meal plan website for additional information on the All Access Meal Plan for first year students, along with meal plan options for continuing and transfer students.
Please see operation hours and days on Culinary Service's webpage
The meal plan includes a designated amount of a declining balance credit for each semester called Dining Dollars. Dining Dollars can be used at any dining location on campus. When making a food purchase, simply present your Seawolf ID Card to the cashier and let them know you would like to pay with Dining Dollars. The amount of your purchase is then deducted from your Dining Dollar balance.
The WolfBucks program is a debit-based card system that virtually eliminates the need to carry cash on campus! Simply deposit funds into your account, and enjoy the convenience of being able to make purchases at participating locations by swiping your Seawolf I.D. card!
