Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

Using a secure online payment website, you may authorize an electronic debit from your checking or savings account (U.S. accounts only). There is no service fee and you can control the date that your account is charged.

To make an EFT payment on your Student Account requires:

  • Student name and ID number
  • Bank account number
  • Bank ABA# (9 digit number located on the bottom left corner of your check)
  • Payment amount
  • Indicate whether it is a checking or savings account
  • The date you would like the payment charged to your account

This service is offered in conjunction with the NetPay system, and is available at no cost to you.

Your Student Account will be charged a $25.00 fee for any transaction that is rejected due to insufficient funds

Monthly Payment Plan Options

The Bursars office offers monthly payment plans using Cashnet. Your payment plan needs to be started as follows:

  • 10 Month plan-starts July 1. This plan is for entire school year fees.
  • 9 Month plan-starts August 1 This plan is for entire school year fees.
  • 8 Month plan-starts September 1 This plan is for entire school year fees.
  • 5 Month plan starts December 1 This plan is for winter and spring term fees.

All plans end with the last payment due April 1.

There is a $45 application fee for enrollment but no interest is charged while making payments.

Once a payment plan is established, it is highly recommended that the student account be reviewed periodically to be sure the plan will have adequate funds to cover any incidental charges added to the student account.
