Making Payments

Student Online Payments

Credit card and electronic check (ACH) payments may be made using our online secure payment portal, powered by CASHNet. Access to this portal is available through your Banner Self Service account. 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.

  2. Click on Banner Self Service.
  3. Click on the Student Menu.
  4. Click on CASHNet Payment Gateway.

  6. Enter the authorized user's information. Note: The Authorized User ID is the login name that this person will use to login with along with a randomly generated initial password.

International Payments

International students may make international payments with a service called Flywire. This option is available to students using MyIWU and entering the CASHNet payment gateway available through the Banner Self Service account. Parents and friends of international students may be setup to be an authorized user by the student. An authorized user may access the CASHNet payment gateway here: link to access Flywire using credentials the student set up.

No transcripts of academic record are issued and no degree is granted to a student who has not fully discharged all financial obligations to the University.
