Helpful Hints:

Remember to double-check that the account and routing numbers are in the appropriate fields when making an E-check payment. Do not place spaces or dashes in the account or routing numbers.

Most checks will display the bank routing and account numbers. However, a few check companies may display this information in a different manner on your checks.

Online payments made with incorrect account or routing numbers will not be recognized by your financial institution and will be returned unpaid within one to five business days. A $25 returned check fee will be assessed when a check is not paid by the bank and a financial hold will be placed on the student’s records. Please note that online payment amounts must be less than $50,000.00.
