Credit Card Payments

Students and parents or other authorized payers can make secure payments online via Buff Portal and in person with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. Effective fall 2013, you will be charged a nonrefundable 2.85% service fee for credit card payments. Debit card are acceptable but the nonrefundable service fee of 2.85% of the payment amount applies. The total is based on the payment amount for each transaction. The rate is established by our vendor NelNet to cover the credit card transaction fees assessed by credit card companies, and the university does not receive any part of the service fee.

To avoid the service fee, you can use an echeck using your checking or savings account instead. Select the online echeck payment option and enter your bank routing and account numbers. Payments can also be mailed or delivered in person at Continuing Education, 1505 University Avenue. To divide your bill payments between credit card and echeck, follow the instructions for How to View and Pay Itemized Bill.
