Logging on to CASHNet as a parent:

Making Payments in CASHNet

How to make a payment using CASHNet:
After logging into CASHNet, click “Make a Payment.” Enter the appropriate amount and select “Continue.” Follow the steps as instructed.

  • Electronic check/ACH: Paying with your checking account is a no-fee option for paying online. To take advantage of this, select “New bank account” in the payment method drop-down box.
  • Debit or credit card: CASHNet will allow payments to be made with a debit or credit card, however, a fee of 2.75% will be assessed.
  • Foreign currency: To make a wire payment, choose “Make a Payment,” type in the appropriate amount, click “Continue,” then select “Foreign Currency” in the payment methods drop-down window. This will walk you through the necessary steps to complete your payment.

Paying by paper check:
We still accept payments via check - please remember to put your student’s name and ID number in the memo line. We do encourage payment with your checking account electronically on CASHNet however, as this eliminates the extra time of mailing and manually applying the check to your payment plan.

How to pay a deposit through CASHNet:
CASHNet provides the option of paying several types of deposits online, including Pre-Registration and Housing deposits for the upcoming academic year, and Global Education deposits. Once logged in, choose "Make a Payment" then choose “Deposits.” This will bring you to a list of deposits; select the appropriate one to add to your payment. Click "Add more" if you are paying multiple deposits.

Enrolling in & Adjusting Payment Plans

How to enroll in a payment plan:
On the "Overview" page of CASHNet under “Payment plans”, click on “View payment plan options” and a list of plans will appear to your right. Choose the appropriate option, and then click “Enroll in plan”. Review the payment schedule, terms and conditions.

If you know you wish to be enrolled in a payment plan, it is important to enroll before the semester’s first payment due date. Doing so will ensure an accurate division of payments, and payment will not be required at the time of enrollment. If you encounter any issues in the enrollment process, please contact our office at .

How to adjust the amount of your payment plan:
On the "Overview" page of CASHNet under “Payment plans”, click on the link to the plan you are currently enrolled in and a panel showing your plan details will pop up on the right-hand side. From there, you can click on "Edit Amount" and type in the new "Remaining plan amount". You can access this button right next to your payment schedule, or by clicking on the menu with the three dots at the very top of the panel.

Billing Information in CASHNet

The first bill for both the Fall and Spring semesters will be sent in the mail. All subsequent bills will be posted electronically. Especially for this reason, it is important that students grant bill payers access to CASHNet.

CASHNet also gives you the option to see a list of recent transactions in real-time by clicking on “Activity Details".
