Payment Method Options for Students and Parents

Be sure to read the Tuition and Fees Payment Policy for All Students.

Students may authorize parents or other designated individuals to access the e-bill system and make payments on their behalf. To enable this feature, a student MUST access the e-bill system and set up those individuals responsible for payment of their student account as an "Authorized User." Students may set up an Authorized User by clicking on the link in their e-bill message, selecting the Authorized User tab and following the instructions.

Authorized Users will receive e-mail notification when a new e-bill statement is issued. Click on the link in the e-mail or enter the link in your browser to access the e-bill system and make a payment.

On-line Payments with Check

Payment by electronic check using the e-bill system is the most efficient and Samford's preferred method of payment. Payment by electronic check can be made by using your checking account.

On-line Payments with Credit Card

Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express can be used to make online payments. A 2.75% (minimum of $3.00) convenience fee will be assessed by third-party web processor. Reminder: Fee (2.75%) will not be assessed if payment is made by electronic check.

Other Payment Options

The Bursar's Office continues to accept payment by check through the mail, but the University is not responsible for delays of the postal service, and late fees will apply if payments are received after the due date. Payment by check or cash can be made in person.
