Online Payment Information for Undergraduate and Graduate Studies

Student Online Business Center -  Requires student password

To reach the Student Online Business Center log into My.UAFS.edu, click the Students tab, click Student Services (A+), click Make a Payment Now (green circle). Students can give authorization to allow parents, guardians, employers, etc. to view their account information and make payments on their behalf. Once logged in to the Online Business Center, Select Authorized Users for details.

 

Authorized User Online Business Center login (parents, guardians, employers, etc.)

Authorized users have access to a student’s account only after the student has granted them access. 

  • Students have the ability to add authorized users to their account (typically a parent or guardian). The student will need to know the authorized user’s email address. After the student has granted them access, authorized users will receive two separate email notifications, one including their login username, and another including a temporary password and instructions. The authorized user will then create their own password to be used to login to the student’s account information. Authorized users can make payments, pay a housing deposit, or set up a payment plan on behalf of the student. They will also receive automatic email notifications concerning payments due, payments successfully completed, online statements available to view, etc. Please note that students and authorized users are not able to view each other’s bank account or credit card information.
     
  • Students should enroll for direct deposit of refunds into a checking or savings account. Information needed includes 1) Bank Routing Number, 2) Bank Account Number, and 3) Bank Account Type (checking or savings). With direct deposit your funds should be reflected in your bank account within two to four business days of your refund being posted to your student account, and a confirmation email will be sent at the time the funds are sent to your banking institution. If you do not set up direct deposit, a paper check will be processed on our next check processing day (which is only once per week) to the mailing address you have provided.
     
  • Payment is accepted online by electronic check, with no additional fee. Payment is also accepted online using Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express and will be assessed a 2.85 percent vendor service fee (minimum fee is $3.00), payable at the time of the transaction. You will receive a confirmation email of your payment after it is successfully completed. Please keep all receipts for your records.
     
  • If you are unable to make full payment of your current charges, you may set up a payment plan that covers eligible current semester charges on your student account after financial aid has been applied. Past due balances cannot be included in the payment plan. To successfully set up a payment plan, you must select a plan and pay the down payment plus the setup fee associated with the plan. The setup fee is nonrefundable. Students must set up a payment plan and pay the down payment on or before the published payment due date in order to avoid being removed from their courses.
     
  • Payment plans will automatically recalculate due to account adjustments, which may include additional charges (additional courses enrolled in, housing charges added, etc.), changes in financial aid, or unanticipated payments. Students and authorized users will be notified by email of any adjustments to the student's monthly payment plan amount.
     
  • Payment plans for the spring 2021 semester will be available starting Dec. 2, 2020. Payment plans for the summer 2021 semester will be available starting May 11, 2021. The payment deadline date for the spring 2021 semester is Jan. 8, 2021, and the payment deadline date for the summer 2021 semester is May 21, 2021. Students are welcome to spread their payments over a longer period of time by simply making payments prior to the date payment plans are available for the semester. You can begin making payments as soon as you are enrolled in courses and there are charges on your account. The net balance due will be used to calculate payment plan payments at the time the plan is set up. Payment of the down payment and the plan setup fee is required to successfully complete the payment plan. Please note that payment plans cannot be set up at the Cashier's Office.  All payment plans must be set up through the Online Business Center, using a credit/debit card or electronic check.
