Your Financial Account Details

Main content start

Use this guide to navigate Stanford’s student payment system,  understand your financial account details and print a term statement.

Account Summary

Summary information about your account can be seen on the main Account Summary page.  

  • Access the Student Payment System through Axess.
  • The Balance Due amount is what you currently owe on or before the Due by date
  • The Balance Due adjusts automatically as new charges are added and credits or payments are made on your account.
  • If you have Anticipated Aid, it will be automatically deducted from the Balance Due.  Note: Financial aid for future terms cannot be used to pay for the charges in the current or prior terms. 
  • If you are enrolled in a Payment Plan (undergraduates only), the Balance Due will adjust to reflect the amount due for the next payment plan installment.

If you owe money for a Prior Term, you will be prompted to Pay Now to clear that balance. An unpaid balance from a prior term could result in a hold being placed on your account that prevents you from enrolling in classes or receiving your diploma.
