A simple and convenient way to pay your bill.
SDePay is the convenient and secure way to view and pay your student charges online with either an electronic check or credit card. After you register for classes, your tuition and fee bill will be available on SDePay.
You will receive an email from SDePay at your USD email address (as well as the email of any authorized payers) once your billing statement is available online. You will NOT receive a paper billing statement in the mail.
