Tuition Payment Options for ASU Online Programs

By: , Category: Arizona State University

Your application for the admission into Arizona State University online courses has been approved? [adsnese]Then congratulations – you have the opportunity to earn a higher degree or certificate without stepping out of your home. Just with a computer and internet access, you can complete the entire program and gain a diploma that looks the same as that of on-campus students.

Then, besides feeling cheerful for the admission, you should take your time to register for the classes and pay the tuition and other fees involved in your program. You must make payments before the deadlines set by Arizona State University for each session, otherwise, your registration will be cancelled and you have to wait for the next start.

Now, let’s come to the key point of this article – how to make payments for all applicable tuition and registration fees?

Given the possibility that you live out of the state or even the US, Arizona State University provides a diversity of payment options to help you pay tuition and other fees on time. Then, you can make the transactions 24 hours a day wherever you are in the world.

By the way, your billing statements are only available online. ASU will not mail them to you.

Generally, Arizona State University offers four major payment options. You can choose the fast and convenient online payment, or go to any of ASU campuses in person to make payments, or mail checks to ASU, or apply for the financial aid to fund your online learning. No matter which kind of methods you select, be sure to submit the amount you owe before the due dates!

Online Payment

To pay the tuition online, you just need to log on to My ASU and select “My Finances” in the “Quick Links” tab. Then click “Make a Payment.” ASU recommends online payments made by eChecks, credit/debit cards, as well as QuickPAY by authorized payers.

Personally, I would encourage you to make payments via eChecks, which can be processed entirely online without any service charge. This kind of payment is fast and secure, and you can directly make the payment from your checking or savings account of major US banks.

Please take particular note that for payments made before 3pm Arizona time, the money will be transferred from your bank account overnight. If the payment is made after 3pm Arizona time, your account will be charged the next night. For eCheck payments made on weekends or holidays, the money will be processed on the next business day.

As for the payments made by credit cards or debit cards, you should keep in mind that your payments are not directly made to ASU, but the third-party processor which accepts MasterCard, Discover, and American Express through QuickPAY.

By making payments with credit or debit cards, you have to pay a 2.5% service fee. I would not like to recommend this option, as for each 7.5 week session, you may have to pay over $20,000 tuition and fees, and then the service charge will get to more than $500.

Or you can request authorized payers, such as your parent or spouse, to pay your tuition through QuickPAY. Detailedly, to add authorized payers, you need to:

1. Log in to your My ASU account and click “My Finances” in the “Quick Link” box.

2. Click “Make a Payment” and select the “Authorize Payers” link in the QuickPAY tab.

3. Click “Add New” to add a new payer. To add a new payer, you need to submit his/her name and email, and then create a login name and password to grant him/her the access to your My ASU account.

4. Verify all information you submit and click “Add.”

5. The new authorized payer will receive an email, notifying that he/she has been added.

I encourage you to choose your parents as authorized payers, and therefore they can have direct access to billing statements and online payments.

In Person

If you live close to any of ASU campuses, you can certainly visit the campus to make tuition payments in person. The payments made on campus can only be personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, and cash.

West Campus:

By Check

Or maybe you prefer to mail the payment to ASU by check. The only address for check payments is:

Cashiering Services

Arizona State University

PO Box 870303

Tempe, AZ 85287-0303

Actually, I do not advise you to pay tuition by check. Compared with other payment options, it is not that safe and takes longer time. In order to make sure that your check will be received by ASU timely, you have to mail the check at least 2 weeks before the due date. Also, you have to include your ASU ID on the check, which is quite unsecure and subject to identity theft.

Financial Aid

Virtually, almost everyone can be eligible for certain form of financial support at ASU, regardless of your income and grades. Each year, over 70% students of ASU obtain some form of financial aid.

Specifically, the financial assistance available for online campus students includes scholarships, grants (available for all undergraduate students, while only Federal TEACH Grant is available for graduate students), and loans (including federal and private student loans).

On http://students.asu.edu/financialaid/types, you can find all types of financial aid at ASU. Click the name of the aid that you are interested in to get an in-depth understanding.

If you apply for any financial aid, it will be posted to your My ASU account, used to cover the tuition and other charges for your program. Any remaining balance will be refunded to you. If the financial aid you receive is sufficient to pay the tuition fees, then the amount will be deducted automatically from your account.

However, if your financial aid is not sufficient to cover the tuition, first the balance will be paid by the deadline, and then with the unpaid tuition charges, you will be automatically enrolled into ASU Tuition Installment Plan.
