Payment and Your Student Account: Billing Process
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) mails tuition and fee bills at the end of each month to students who have a balance due and to those who have had account activity since the last monthly bill. New undergraduate student laptop charges are billed separately.
Your payment options include payment in full or payment arrangements through CASHNet. Payment in full or payment arrangements of any balance not covered by financial aid must be made by the following dates in order to avoid late fees, restriction of access on campus, and prevention from future registration and release of academic transcripts/diplomas:
- Fall: August 15
- Winter: December 15
- Spring: January 15
- Summer: May 15
Bills are sent to the student’s billing address as listed in SAIC Self-Service. If no active billing address is listed, the bill will be sent to the student’s home/permanent address or mailing address, respectively. Students are expected to monitor their student account, be current on payment of their balance, and maintain current addresses in SAIC Self-Service.
