There is no charge for using direct debit from a checking or savings account as a payment method. Credit card payments will be charged a 2.75% convenience fee.

Important Note about Credit Card Payments/Refund Policy

Payments made toward student tuition accounts using a credit card will be charged a 2.75% convenience fee by our credit card vendor TouchNet/Paypath. The convenience fee is non-refundable, even if the student account payment is refunded. Authorization of a credit card payment to a student account signifies acceptance of these terms.
