  • No waiting on lines or paying for postage
  • No additional fees or percentages charged for the electronic check
  • Payments are applied to your account faster, eliminating the check transit time in the mail
  • E-checks are safe and secure, no more lost or stolen paper checks

When you review your term bill and confirm your attendance online, you will be required to enter bank information and your email address.  Click here for instructions for completing the electronic check payment process via your online student account.
