Student Accounts accepts payments online, by mail, in person, and via phone. We also accept payments through employer reimbursement and direct billing programs.
Students and authorized payers can make electronic check payments, establish payment plans, and make international payments online via FisherPay.
Using a Checking or Savings Account
Secure online payments that automatically debit a checking or savings account can be made in FisherPay. Payments can be made only from bank accounts in the United States.
Each time an online payment is made by the student or an authorized payer, an email with a confirmation number will be sent. Payments are posted to the student's account at the time of transaction.
For more details about how to pay online using a checking or savings account, please view our FisherPay Guide.

Payment/Reimbursement from Employer
If your employer will pay your tuition charges upon completion of the semester, you may use the Payment/Reimbursement from Employer Plan (PREP) form to defer your balance. A completed PREP form must be submitted to Student Accounts by the due date on your bill to avoid a late fee. The PREP form is available in our office and on our Documents and Forms page. Note: Only the portion of your bill that your employer agrees to pay will be deferred. All other amounts should be paid by the due date on your bill.
Direct Billing to Your Employer
You may defer your balance if your employer will pay the College in full upon receipt of a bill. You must provide Student Accounts with a letter from your employer stating your name, the semester, the dollar amount they will pay, and where the bill should be sent. The letter should be submitted to Student Accounts by the due date on your bill in order to avoid a late fee.
