Billing & Payment

Complete financial arrangements for tuition and fees for each term are due by the deadline published on the Student Portal. Students receiving financial aid, scholarships, and third-party payments are responsible for any remaining balance on their accounts in excess of the amount awarded or applied. All financial arrangements must be finalized before a student’s registration is considered official.


Aquinas College delivers schedules, statements, and bills to students using eBill, a convenient, electronic billing system designed to save students both time and money. Bill notifications are sent by student email. Statements may be accessed through the student portal. Paper statements are mailed once for each term.


Aquinas College requires that financial arrangements for tuition and fees be completed by the published payment deadline and all subsequent payments are received by due dates. Please see Payment Terms below.

Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check, money order, electronic check, credit card, financial aid award credited to the student’s account, or a combination thereof for the total amount due. Payments may be made in person at the Business Office, by mail, or online through the Student Portal. Credit cards are only accepted online. A non-refundable 2.9% service fee applies to credit card payments.

Financial aid includes scholarships, grants, loans and third-party payment arrangements. Please note: Students who receive financial aid are responsible for any additional amounts which may subsequently be billed resulting from changes in financial aid awards.

Electronic Payment (ePayment)

Aquinas College accepts electronic checks, debit cards, and credit cards via the CASHNet payment system available through the Student Portal. CASHNet is a third-party vendor that processes electronic payments on behalf of Aquinas College.

Electronic Checks
Payments made by electronic check are accepted online. There is no service fee applied to electronic checks.

Credit and Debit Card Payments
CASHNet accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards. There is an additional 2.9% non-refundable service fee applied to the total amount of all credit card transactions.

Payment Terms

Pending account balances of $400 or less must be paid in full by the published deadline each semester.

Payment Plans (for account balances greater than $400)
Students with a pending account balance of more than $400 may either pay in full or enroll in CASHNet’s monthly “MyPaymentPlan” (available through the Student Portal).

MyPaymentPlan requires an initial payment of a required percentage of the account balance plus the enrollment fee per term. This payment must be made on or before the published payment deadline for the student’s registration to be made official. The semester payment plan is a four payment plan. There is a $55 enrollment fee per semester. Summer plans are available with fewer payments and a reduced enrollment fee. A non-refundable 2.9% service fee applies to all credit card payments.

Delinquent (Late) Payments
Delinquent payments require either cash or a cashier’s check to satisfy the debt. All financial obligations must be fulfilled according to contractual agreements before final grades are released, transcript requests are honored, or registration for subsequent terms is official.

Returned Checks
A charge of $25.00 will be assessed for returned checks.
