PAY NOW is an online payment system that allows you to make secure payments 24 hours 7 days a week using your debit or credit card.  You can view your student account balance prior to making a payment.

What is the difference between “balance due” and “payment amount”?

Your balance due is the amount provided from your student record with the college.  If you have added or dropped a class recently, this would affect the balance due.  Check with the business office if you feel the balance due on your student record is not correct. 

Payment amount is the amount you wish to pay for the transaction you are completing today.  This does not reflect any deadlines that are imposed for paying your student account.

Is there a fee associated with using this online payment service?

Yes, a $2.00 fee is collected each time you submit an online payment.

What happens if my card declines?

Your payment will not be processed.  The card that is used for making payments must have the same billing information that you entered into our online payment system.  This includes the billing zip code.  Other reasons for declines include card information on file that occurs due to a new expiration date or new security code (CVV).

If the decline is due to insufficient funds, you will need to choose a different credit/debit card with sufficient funds available on your card or select a card with a higher daily limit.

If the decline is due to an invalid expiration date or CVV code, you will need to update your profile with the new card information.

What happens if I drop or add a class?

This will affect the amount owed.  Other events that can change the amount you owe include dorm and meal plan charges.  The balance due in your student record is updated immediately after changes occur.  Should you have any questions regarding the amount owed or your charges, you should contact the business office.

Why do I have to input my email address?

You can choose the email address that you prefer to receive communications.  We will use this for payment confirmation receipts but will not use this for marketing or solicitation purposes.

Will I receive a receipt for the payment?

Yes, you will receive an email confirmation as soon as your payment has been processed.

When will my payment be applied to my balance?

Your payment will be applied to your balance owed immediately.  If your payment is declined by your credit card company or financial institution at a later time, your balance due will be revised.
