Paying Your Tuition

For billing and due date information, see our Billing webpage.

Online Payment Methods

Paying your charges online is the fastest and easiest way to take care of payment. Instructions outlining how to make an online payment, view charges, and grant Authorized User access are available on our Tutorials webpage.

Please note if parents or guests wish to make a regular online payment on their student's behalf, students must now grant them Authorized User access through the new WVU MyAccount platform, even if they already have existing proxy access to the student's billing information.

E-Check (Electronic Check)

All you need to use this option is your checking account's routing number and account number. You can typically find this information by logging into your online banking account or looking at a paper check. This method allows you to avoid mailing delays, saves you an envelope, and bypass convenience fees that go along with debit and credit card payments.

To use this method, find the routing and checking account numbers online or at the bottom of your check.

Example (These 3 sets of numbers may appear in a different order on your check):

Image shows the bottom of an example check with a 9-digit routing number, account number, and check number

  • Your routing number is 9 digits in the middle of two of these symbols |:
  • The number of digits in your checking account number varies by bank, and it is to the left of the quotation symbol "
  • The check number in this line of digits should match the number in the upper-right corner of the check; do not include as part of your account number

You will receive an email confirming payment. It may take 2-3 business days to see a debit in your checking account.

Just like a paper check, e-checks can be returned for insufficient funds or if your account or routing number is incorrect, so be careful when you input your numbers. A $25 fee is assessed for returned checks/e-checks.

Credit or Debit Card

Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express are accepted (with a non-refundable 2.85% convenience fee). To avoid the convenience fee, you may consider paying online with an e-check, mailing a paper check, or delivering a check in-person. Students who are making a payment using a debit card should consider using the e-check option instead if they would like to avoid the convenience fee.

Before you get started with a card payment, make sure you know the daily limit on your card. Credit and credit/debit cards usually have a daily limit you cannot exceed, and the card will decline if you try to go over the daily limit. Make sure the amount you are paying plus the 2.85% convenience fee will not put you over your limit for the day. If your daily limit is too low, contact the card provider to request they increase your limit for the day.

You will receive an email confirming payment. It may take 2-3 business days to see a debit in your checking account or a charge to your credit card account.

The non-refundable convenience fee is assessed by our third-party processor, TouchNet® PayPath, not WVU.
