Note: Only individuals listed on the Billing Name(s) line of a student’s Tuition Payment Agreement will have access to the eCheck service.
To use eCheck, your checking/saving account must be with a U.S. bank. International payers without U.S. bank accounts should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for electronic fund transfer (EFT) information instead.
Payments processed via eCheck will post to your student account within a few minutes. Please be aware that a fee of $30 will be assessed for any transactions denied due to insufficient funds.
