Semester Financial Arrangements

Semester Financial Arrangments“Semester Financial Arrangement (SFA)” simply means to make payment arrangements each semester to confirm your registration. All students must make semester financial arrangements before the first day of class and resident students prior to moving in the residence halls. If arrangements are not made by that date, a $100 late penalty will be added to your account. Classes will be dropped if proper arrangements are not made. 

If your anticipated financial aid (scholarships, grants, or loans) covers all your expenses, you still must confirm your SFA online or in the Express Center. If you have a credit balance, you may authorize these funds for use in the bookstore (will be credited to your campus card), apply them to next semester, or be issued a refund check.

Balances can not be carried across the fiscal year. If you owe money for the current academic year, you can not make your arrangements for the next fall term. If this is the case, you will have a SFA Hold (SFAH) on your account.

You must have your financial aid complete and be registered for all your classes to complete your SFA.

Warning: If you make significant changes to your registration or your anticipated financial aid changes after you SFA, you will need to reconfirm your SFA. Call or e-mail the Express Center in this situation. 402-399-2429 or

Financial Responsibility and Disclosure Statement which will explain the terms and conditions of your College of Saint Mary account.
