Making Online Account Payments

PAY FROM CHECKING OR SAVINGS ACCOUNT ONLY (No Fee)

PAY FROM CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD ONLY (2.75% CONVENIENCE FEE Will Be Charged)

Payments made from a checking or savings account will require approximately 5 days to validate the account before the first payment can be scheduled, but the payment information will be stored securely for future payments (click here to see how to setup a payment from checking or savings accounts).

Payments of cash, check or credit card can still be made at the Cashier’s Office in Barge Hall 104.  Check and credit card payments are accepted at our CWU University Centers.
