Question about English (US)

From Advanced Vocabulary in Use (Cambridge University Press):
"Student loans allow undergraduates to pay for their tuition fees and living expenses while they are studying"
Shouldn't it be "to pay their tuition fees" (not "to pay for their tuition fees") as in "pay your loan", "pay a fine", "pay a mortgage" or "pay a debt"?
Should we just memorise this particular collocation ("pay for a tuition fee") or is there a rule?
