How to Make a Payment

Payments can be made online 24/7 via the Cashnet e-bill portal. Payments not made on time are subject to late fees.

Students make payments toward their e-bill via BearPAWS. After signing in:

  • Select Student Services and Financial Aid
  • Select Student Records
  • Select eBill
  • Choose the relevant term, even though the dollar amount displayed may be higher that what you wish to pay
  • Enter the dollar amount you plan to pay in the amount box, then add to shopping cart and checkout

Follow the directions and supply the required information. Holds are removed every 30 minutes for balances paid in full.
