Payment Options

Find the payment option that's right for you - pay online, in-person, or through the mail. We offer a number of options to make paying as easy as possible.


Using eCheck/ACH deducts money immediately from your checking account online, free of charge. This method will require you to submit your financial institution’s routing and account numbers. A $50 penalty fee is assessed when an eCheck/ACH payment for fees, fines or services is returned unpaid by the bank for any reason, so please verify your information before submitting the payment. Failure to reimburse the university for an uncollectable eCheck/ACH may result in class schedules being canceled.

Credit Card

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Credit card payments may be made online only via the student’s Self Service account or the Authorized User account. Credit card payments are processed by a third-party vendor and assessed a 2.85% convenience fee (minimum $3) on the payment amount. Credit card payments are not accepted in-person or via mail. Credit card payments cannot be cancelled once submitted.


Cash payments are accepted at the Bursar’s Office Payment Center, which is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday-Friday. The Payment Center is located on the third floor of the Enrollment Services building. The Bursar’s Office reserves the right to refuse unwrapped or loose coins. Large quantities of coins must be rolled in order to be considered an acceptable form of payment.

Check or Money Order

Checks and money orders may be mailed or brought in-person to the Bursar’s Office Payment Center. They should be made payable to Towson University and include the student’s TU ID number on the front. Mailed payments should include a copy of your eBill statement and be sent to: Towson University, Bursar’s Office, 8000 York Rd, Towson, MD 21252-0001.

Cash handling accounts are designed for transacting business and may not be used as a check-cashing fund for students, staff or anyone else. Checks may not be accepted for more than the transaction amount. 

A $50 penalty fee is assessed when a check payment for fees, fines or services is returned unpaid by the bank for any reason. Failure to reimburse the university for an uncollectable check may result in class schedules being canceled.

Wire Transfers

Domestic Wire Transfers

For bank information to submit a wire transfer, please contact Annette Tolliver at 410-704-6238 or Ruth Thomas at 410-704-5239. The student's name and TU ID number should appear on the wire transfer document.

International Currency Wire Transfers

Towson University accepts international payments by wire transfer, foreign credit and debit cards, and other international payment options through Towson's International Currency Payment Portal. Please find detailed instructions on how to make an international payment on our International Currency Payments page.

Tuition Payment Plan (Tiger Installment Plan)

The Tiger Installment Plan offers students a monthly budget plan for paying tuition bills and other term costs, including on-campus housing and meals. Certain student housing facilities (including Millennium Hall, Harris Hall and Tubman House) are privately operated, and rent is not included as part of the university’s term billing. Rent for Millennium Hall, Harris Hall, and Tubman House is to be paid to Capstone Management and therefore cannot be included in a deferred payment plan.
