Information on Paying by Credit Card

In recent years, many universities across the country have found it more and more cost prohibitive to accept credit cards for student account payments. In some cases, the situation has become so extreme that institutions no longer offer the option of credit card payment.  Marshall University finds itself in a similar position, given that budget challenges continue to impact operations across all West Virginia state agencies.  In order to continue to offer students the option of payment by credit card, Marshall University must pass the cost along to those who use the service.

  • A non-refundable 2.85% processing fee, per transaction, will be required to make payment by credit/debit card.  The processing fee will be combined with your authorized payment amount and will appear on your credit/debit card statement as a “MU Office of the Bursar” transaction.  Marshall University receives no part of the processing fee. This applies only to payments made through the Offices of the Bursar, Registrar and Admissions.  MU Bookstore, Athletics, Theatre, Cafeterias, and Artists Series are not affected.
  • All major credit cards are accepted as a payment method including American ExpressDiscoverMasterCardVisa .

Student Financial Aid Refunds

Spring 2024 refunds for overpayment of financial aid released to your student account will be processed beginning on the first day of the term, January 8, 2024.
