Pay by Credit Card using the Summary of Account-Make a Payment

Why is there a fee for paying student account charges with a credit card?

The cost of providing the option to pay student account charges by credit card has increased significantly. The direct cost of service is passed on to the university from the credit card companies and is the cost of doing business via the Internet. The university does not make money from the assignment of credit card convenience fees. Students may avoid the fee by selecting one of the other payment options available. The university has other payment alternatives, such as e-check and payment plans, which makes payment less costly than using credit cards.

Terms and Conditions of Use

Credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express) may be used to pay student account charges. There is a convenience fee* charged for this automated service.  In order to remain compliant with the security requirements of our credit card merchant agreement, we are unable to process any credit card payment via telephone or in person. *Credit card convenience fees cannot be refunded as these funds go directly to an outside service provider.

Refund Procedures

If a credit card is used to pay student account charges, any resulting credit balance will be returned to the credit card that caused the overpayment.
