Online Payment Options
Tuition, Housing, Deposits and General Fees Payment
- If you are a student, login to your Self-Service account and go to the Finances tab to view your account and make a payment.
- If you are making a payment on behalf of a student, you may pay online through Arcadia’s secure eBill Web site (www.arcadia.edu/ebill) using a credit card (Visa, Discover, MasterCard or American Express) or by electronic check. There’s a 2.75% convenience fee added to credit card transactions.
Grant a Payer Account Access
PLEASE NOTE: In order for someone other than the student (“payer”) to view an account and make an online payment, student must first grant payer access to the account. The student can do this through his or her Self-Service account. The student must login to Self Service and click on the Finances tab. Next, select the “e-bill/e-pay”, click “add new” in the section titled Authorized Payer Section. Follow the instructions for adding a payer. A welcome e-mail will be sent to the payer’s e-mail address containing a login ID, temporary password and a link to access the eBill site.
Monthly Payment Plan
Arcadia University offers payment plans for currently enrolled as well as new, incoming graduate and undergraduate students. The payment plans are 5-month, interest-free single semester payment plans beginning on August 1 for the Fall semester or January 1 for the Spring semester. Please note that the Academic Year payment plan consists of both the Fall and the Spring plans. You need to complete both sections when selecting the Annual plan. There is a $50 fee due at the time of registration for either plan. Payment Plans are created via the student’s Self-Service account or the eBill/ePay online gateway.
Credit Card Payments
As part of our efforts to reduce expenses and keep tuition as low as possible, the University is unable to subsidize the usage fee charged by credit card companies for those who pay tuition and housing costs. All credit card payments for tuition and student housing will be processed through our online payment gateway hosted by CashNet. CashNet will accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards. Payments by these credit cards will incur a 2.75% convenience fee. CashNet also will accept payments via electronic check. Payments made by electronic check will not incur a convenience fee.
Students are billed in advance for each semester. Student accounts are expected to be paid in full on or before the date due.
The most common types of holds placed on students’ accounts are:
- Business Office Hold (BOH): A Business Office Hold is placed on a student’s account when there is a balance of $2,500 or more. If a Business Office Hold is placed on a student’s account, the student will be allowed to register for future semesters, but may be in jeopardy of being removed from those future classes if the balance is not resolved. The student will also not be allowed to receive their diploma or transcripts.
- Official Transcript Hold (Official Trans Hold): An Official Transcript Hold is placed on a student’s account when there is a balance of any amount on the account. If this type of hold is assessed, a student will not be allowed to receive an official transcript, but will be able to register for future semesters and view grades on the Self-Service system.
- Health Records Hold (HRH): A Health Records Hold is placed on a student’s account when Student Health Services is missing information (i.e. verification of physical exam, verification of booster shots, etc.)
To remove Business Office or Official Transcript Holds:
- Payments can be made by check or money order.
- Payments can be made online via credit card or electronic check.
- If payment is made online, debit card or direct debit to a checking or savings account can also be used.
- If payment is made by paper check, 10 business days are needed for the check to clear and for the hold to be removed.
- If payment is made by credit card, debit card or direct debit to a checking or savings account, the hold will be removed by the following day.
Students who receive tuition reimbursement from their employers can apply for participation in the Employer Reimbursement Payment Agreement (ERPA). Under this plan, the employer’s portion of tuition is due two weeks after grades are mailed, thereby allowing students to apply the employer’s reimbursement to the semester during which the work was done. The ERPA form is available online.
The Board of Trustees of Arcadia University reserves the right to change tuition and fees and to make other charges at any time without further notice.
