Important Information Regarding COVID-19


An updated Spring term bill will be available on our normally scheduled bill date of April 20, 2020. The bill due date will be May 15, 2020. No late fees or financial holds will be placed before May 16, 2020 on Spring term charges, including those billed prior to April 20, 2020.

Payments should be made electronically via Stanford ePay which provides US dollar and foreign currency options. (Students sending check payments should expect significant delays.)


In the current circumstance, students’ use of Direct Deposit is especially critical to ensure their refund is received securely and timely. If Direct Deposit is impossible, students must ensure their mailing address in Axess is accurate in order to receive a check payment.

Refunds of payments made for Winter and Spring charges that have since been removed from student accounts will begin April 3. Refunds of Spring term financial aid began March 25 for graduate students and April 2 for undergraduates.

If you have a change in financial circumstance that may affect your ability to support your educational or living expenses:

Undergraduates contact the Financial Aid Office at • Graduate students review Funding Options and/or contact your department.

Charges and credits from university departments are aggregated on a student's individual account and presented on the university bill in Stanford ePay. The bill summarizes all activity on the student account for the entire term. Our sample of the university bill (PDF) summarizes the primary information provided on the bill.

About Stanford ePay

Stanford ePay is the university's online billing and payment service which provides the ability to view and pay the university bill online 24/7, seven days a week.

Students may authorize others to access their Stanford ePay account and make payments on their behalf. Such individuals are referred to as "Authorized Payers." A student may designate up to five authorized payers. Examples of authorized payers include parents, spouses and family members. Authorized Payers have similar functions as students to view payment and billing history; however, they cannot edit their own Authorized Payer account or set up other authorized payers.

With Stanford ePay, students can

  • Pay their university bill online.
  • Authorize parents or others to pay their university bill online.
  • View activity since the last bill and the current account balance.
  • View billing history.

Please see the Stanford ePay FAQ's (PDF) for more information. For individualized assistance, contact the Student Services Center.
