Make a Payment

Payments can be made online by e-check (free) or by credit/debit card (with a 2.85 percent convenience fee) through the Online Business Center. The university accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. In-person payments by cash or check can be made between 1-5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Cashier's Office, located on the second floor of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center. We are unable to accept credit/debit card payments in person or by phone.

Students can pay their balance by credit card, debit card, or e-check through UAFS's
Online Business Center portal, which can be found on the homepage of your My.UAFS account. Students may also authorize others to access their account information and pay their balance through the Online Business Center.
