Making Payments

Student Online Payments

Credit card and electronic check (ACH) payments may be made using our online secure payment portal, powered by Transact Campus Payments, Inc. (Cashnet). Access to this portal is available through your Banner Self Service account > Student Dashboard > Cashnet Payment Gateway. The student may grant access to other individuals by providing them with their own login and password.

A convenience fee is charged by the provider for the credit card payment option. IWU does not charge nor collect the convenience fee. There is no fee for an ACH payment. Credit card payments and direct debits are not taken at the Business Office.

 

Parents/Designee Online Payments

Students must first grant access to other individuals by providing them with their own login (Authorized User ID) and password in Banner Self Service (see instructions below). Once this is done, the authorized user can then access the Cashnet Payment Gateway here using credentials your student set up for you.

The enrollment fee is considered a finance charge which is defined by federal regulations as “the cost of consumer credit as a dollar amount.” To make it easy for consumers to compare this cost to other forms of credit, Transact Campus Payments, Inc. provides the equivalent annual percentage rate (APR), which takes into account a number of variables, including the number of payments, the term, and the amount financed. Maximum APR limits may be subject to applicable state usury laws.
