Tuition and Fee Payments

Personal Funds

Effective July 1, 2013, the Cashier’s Office will no longer accept credit or debit cards for payment of tuition, mandatory fees, housing plans, or meal plans. Cash, checks, and money orders will be accepted in the office.

To pay with MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Card, pay online using the Student Account Suite. A non-refundable service fee of 2.75% (minimum $3.00) will be charged and retained by Touchnet (our online payment processor) for use of this service.

If paying with a web check, no additional fee will be charged. You will use your ban’s routing number and your account number to complete the transaction.

Payment for tuition and fees is always due before the first day of class. For any account that has not been paid before the first day of class, a Late Payment Fee of $100.00 is assessed. Upon reinstatement of any courses, an additional Reinstatement Fee of $100.00 will be assessed.

Standard due dates are as follows:

Fall Semester August 5th
Spring Semester December 16th
Summer Semester May 16th

Payment Plan

To enroll in a payment plan, log in to your Banner Web account and select Student Services, Student Account, select the Term, and then eCashier Flexible Payment Plan. This option is available only until the first day of class. Also, if you are receiving any financial aid, only those amounts that are listed in the Authorized Financial Aid section of the Account Detail for Term screen will be taken into consideration when completing an agreement for the Flexible Payment Plan.

Financial Aid

Log in to your Banner Web account and go to the Account Detail for Term page. If the total amount of Authorized Financial Aid is greater than the total charges on your account, the fee acceptance/payment process will be completed automatically. If all of the financial aid does not appear on your account before the first day of class, or the balance owed is not paid before the first day of class, a late fee may be assessed to your account. Failure to receive financial aid before the first day of class does not exempt a student from being charged late and reinstatement fees.

Third Party Contracts

Documentation must be submitted to the Students Accounts Manager for certification before the payment due date of each semester.

Veterans Affairs

Notify the Veterans Affairs Specialist before each semester begins and after registration has been completed. The contact email address is

However, all online payments on a student account using a debit or credit card are subject to a non-refundable service fee of 2.75%. Payments by web check are not subject to any service fees.
