Kettering University’s preferred method of payment is online through KU•ePay. In an effort to reduce the risk of carrying cash or paper checks on campus grounds, we recommend using KU•ePay, which offers online payment using a standard checking or savings account held at a U.S. Bank at no fee. This payment method requires you to enter the bank account and routing number and will be processed as an ACH transaction. Online payment by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express) may be made. A 2.85% non-refundable service fee will apply to all credit card transactions. Credit card payment will only be accepted at no fee in person for non-tuition and related fees/charges, such as parking fines, library fines, and graduation fees.  As soon as the online payment process is completed, the payment will be posted to the student account in real time. (However, please note that in the case of system outages online payments will be posted in a batch update process by the evening of the next business day.) Also, if there is a financial hold, the hold will be released once the process completes, provided the payment satisfies the amount of the hold.

Those wishing to make payments to the student account via wire transfer should do so using Western Business Solutions through KU•ePay. This option allows the student and authorized users to pay the student account balance in the local currency and provides a simple and secure way of initiating a payment electronically.

NOTE: The Student Accounts Office cannot accept a wire transfer in excess of the amount due on the student account. If a transfer is received that is in excess of the account balance, the excess amount may be returned to the sender. (Families wanting to provide their student with funds for living expenses should transfer funds directly to the student’s personal bank account.)

What are the benefits of using the Western Union Business Solutions option?

Convenience

  • You make payment in the currency of your choice.  This amount is then converted to U.S. dollars.
  • The exchange rate quote is locked in for your payment for three (3) business days after the quote is obtained.

Savings

  • The exchange rate is very competitive when compared to your financial institution’s retail rates, and bank service fees may be reduced since the wire transfer that you initiate is a local transfer.
  • There are no transaction charges from Western Union Business Solutions or Kettering University, though you may be charged a transaction fee by your bank.

Efficient and Timely Posting

  • Payments include your reference information to ensure your payment reaches your Kettering student account quickly. The transaction will appear in “pending” status on the student account until the funds are received by Kettering.

Refer to KU•ePay for the most current balance on your student account.

What if I want to wire money to the student?

Kettering University provides an option for students and authorized users to pay current tuition and related term charges on an installment plan.

Eligibility

Any Kettering undergraduate or graduate student is eligible to participate in the Payment Plan.  Enrollment in the Payment Plan is not automatic. A student must be enrolled in the Payment plan on a term basis.

  • If full payment of each term tuition and related charges is not received by the due date, a late payment penalty will be assessed.
  • A financial hold will prevent you from registering and/or receiving an official transcript or diploma.

Penalties for Returned Checks

A returned check fee may be assessed for payments made by check or online electronic payments processed through KU•ePay. Such fees will be posted to the student’s account.

The following rules and penalties apply:

  • A non-refundable $25 administrative fee may be charged for returned checks and online payments through KU•ePay.
  • Payments returned may cause holds to be placed on the student account which block future enrollment, transcripts and diplomas from being issued.

Students are expected to review their bill monthly and pay amounts by the due date.

Unpaid amounts may result in financial holds being placed on the student account, which block enrollment in the following term, as well as, block diplomas and transcripts immediately.

Additionally, the following may apply to severely delinquent accounts:

  • National credit reporting agencies may be notified.
  • Collection agency placement and/or litigation may occur.
  • Any collection cost, attorney fees and court costs may be the student’s responsibility.

Collection Activity

After multiple attempts by the Student Accounts Office to collect payment and make payment arrangements with students, delinquent account balances will be subject to the collection process. Students are notified by mail of upcoming collection activity and their options. Failure to communicate about payment after notifications are sent will result in the transfer of the full account balance to an outside collection agency. The student will be responsible for the account balance, in addition to fees and credit penalties assessed by the collection process.

For information about refunds of tuition upon withdrawal from courses, see Tuition Refund Schedule.

Students may request a refund of a credit balance on their student account by contacting the Student Accounts Office.
