Accepting Card Payments

Student account payments can be processed using major credit cards, including MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. Please note that a nominal, non-refundable 2.5% service fee will be applied to all credit card transactions. This service fee will be delineated as a separate charge on the payee’s credit card statement and can be conveniently tracked in the payee’s UI-Pay account Payment History.

The Merchant Card Services team is dedicated to assisting units in seamlessly accepting credit or debit cards, including processing payments through a terminal, a point-of-sale system, or an e-Commerce website.

Explore additional information and resources on accepting card payments by visiting Treasury Operations website. For comprehensive policies and procedures related to merchant cards, refer to Policy 21.
