Your To-Do List

To help you stay organized, we listed a few action items you may need to take care of to get off to a great start of the semester:

  1. Log in to the secure Howdy Portal and click on the Tuition Payment icon or go directly to the bill payment suite at billpay.tamu.edu.
  2. Verify your Authorized User information by selecting the Manage Now button under Quick Links in the Account Summary tab. You can add a new Authorized User if you'd like.
  3. Update your payment information in the new system. If you had that information saved in the previous system, it did not automatically transfer to the new for security reasons.
  4. Sign up for the Payment Plan if that is what you'd like to use this semester. If not, refer to our Due Dates page to know when your payment in full is due.
  5. Use any of the tutorial videos or guides below to familiarize yourself with the new bill payment system. You will love the new design and features!
  6. In your secure Howdy Portal, click on the Howdy Checklist icon to see if there are action items that require your attention.
  7. Visit Aggie Answers if you have any questions or issues with your student account or Text SBS during business hours.

Payment Due Dates

Your bill is due at the beginning of each term and it is the responsibility of each student to meet his/her financial obligations to the University by the designated due dates. Failure to pay amounts owed may result in:

  • Cancellation of the student's registration
  • Ineligibility for future enrollment
  • Non-issuance of official transcripts

Please review upcoming due dates to ensure timely payment of your student account balance.
