Payment Questions

How do I pay my bill?

There are several payment options.  You may use one or a combination of them.

Pay online with an e-check (which is free), Bank Wire or with a debit/credit card (VISA, Discover, MasterCard, American Express).  Debit/credit cards can only be accepted on-line. There is a 2.85% (effective May 1, 2018) convenience fee if you choose to pay with a debit/credit card. 

Payment may be sent to the lockbox address that appears on your e-bill.

Pay in person at Student Accounts and Receivables, Room 1 Carruth O'Leary. Payments may be made Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:10 am – 4:00pm and 9:40 am to 4:00 pm on Thursdays.

A payment plan through Nelnet is another option for Fall and Spring semesters.  There is a deadline each semester to enroll. Payments must be made by the 1st of each month to Nelnet to avoid late fees.  This plan is not for past due balances owed to KU.

If I disagree with a charge on my account, who do I contact?

Contact the department that has assessed the charge. They will be the only one that can explain or adjust the amount you are questioning. If your question has to do with tuition and related fees, please contact the University Registrar's Office. An appeal form is available on their website under Fee Petition ».

How do I take care of a NPY hold?

Pay your account in full online through Enroll & Pay, Self Service > Student Center > under Finances > Make a Payment or at the cashier service windows, Room 23 Strong Hall. If you pay online, the system will automatically release your hold within one hour. 

Why is my online account balance different than my latest KU bill?

Bills are created on or about the 21st of each month. The bill is a snapshot of your account on the 21st. It is common for account balances to change due to new charges, payments, credits, or other adjustments. Your online account balance is updated daily and reflects the most recent activity on your account. You can view your current account balance and pay online at

I did not receive a bill in the mail. Where did you mail my bill?

The University of Kansas does not mail paper invoices to students. Instead, students will be notified by email that a new eBill has been generated on or about the 21 st of each month. To obtain your eBill, login to Enroll & Pay then select Self Service> Student Center> under Finances> Account Management> View/Print Bill. 

Why won't you give me information regarding my child's account? I pay the bill.

A federal law under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires that students provide authorization to Student Accounts and Receivables before we can release financial information to anyone. We understand that many parents, spouses, or other individuals pay or need to discuss charges on a student's account. To assist students who want Student Accounts and Receivables to communicate with other individuals, students must setup designated individuals as Delegates in Enroll & Pay. Information about setting up Delegates and Delegate access can be found on KU's Delegate Access webpage.

How do I (student) access the Enroll & Pay system?

Enroll & Pay uses the same ID and password as the one you use to obtain your grades online. For questions or assistance with this process, please contact the Computer Center Help Desk at 785-864-8080.

In Enroll & Pay go to: Campus Finances, then “View 1098-T”.  The first time you retrieve a 1098-T electronically, you (or your student) need to read the 1098-T consent agreement, then click the green “submit” button.

To Do Checklist

  • Set up parents, guardians, or significant others as delegates. Delegates will have access to designated information in your account. Setting up delegates allows KU to discuss your account with designated individuals. 
  • Set up payment delegates in TouchNet. This will allow delegates to make payments on your student account.

  • Keep your contact information updated in Enroll & Pay. This can be done in the Student Center in the Personal Information section.
