How to Make a Payment

Specific payment due dates are published for each semester by the Student Financial Services Office. Typically, all amounts due for a semester are to be paid in full on or before the 12th day of each semester (summer term due dates are the second day of the session). Any charges to the student’s account after the 12th day of classes (after the second day of the summer session) are due immediately. This includes charges due to dropping or adding a course, fines or other fees or charges.

You can make payments by one of the following ways:
