Electronic Check (ACH) Payments
There is no fee for an electronic check (ACH) payment. Before making an ACH payment make sure that your banking institution accepts electronic transactions. Also, be careful when entering your banking information, errors may not be identified until verified with your financial institution. If you enter the account number incorrectly, your transaction will be returned.
Returned transactions are subject to a $25 returned item fee.
ePayment allows students to make a payment with a savings account. Please keep in mind that most financial institutions do not allow payments to be made with savings accounts and may reject the payment. If this occurs, you may contact our office to request that the returned item fee be waived.
