Convenience Fee FAQs
For a number of years, the University has absorbed credit card convenience fees on behalf of its students. Because of the increased use of credit and debit cards for online payments for tuition and fees, the cost to the University to continue this practice has become prohibitive.
Beginning April 5, 2017, the University will no longer be shouldering the cost of fees charged by credit card issuers. As a result, students will see an additional 2.75 percent convenience or "service" fee reflected in their credit and debit card transactions with the University. Connected to this decision, credit and debit card payments in-person or by phone, fax or U.S. mail will no longer be a payment option.
