Student Accounts

NEW! Payment for tuition and fees only can be made online using MasterCard, VISA, American Express or Discover.

All payments for tuition and fees should be made via cash, personal check, certified check, cashier's check or money order. You may charge your tuition and fees by phone using MasterCard or Visa credit cards. The University Cashier can be reached by calling (252) 335-3207. All checks and money orders must be made payable to Elizabeth City State University and include the student's name and student identification number. A $25.00 service charge will apply for all returned checks. In addition, a $25.00 late registration fee will be charged when a return check causes a student to miss tuition and fees payment deadline.

Academic Management Services (AMS) Tuition Payment Plan (Sallie Mae)

Students who are unable to pay accounts in full at the time of official registration should contact Academic Management Services (AMS) Sallie Mae regarding the tuition payment plan at 800-635-0120. Sallie Mae offers low cost flexible payment plans for paying educational expenses at Elizabeth City State University. Sallie Mae payment plans can be initiated prior to the start of the semester. Initiating payment plans prior to the start of the semester gives the most favorable payment terms. Payment plans must be set up properly with the correct amount to ensure full payment of all semester charges by the end of a given semester. Only annual plans paying both Fall and Spring semester balances can be set up using the eight (8) pay option. Since the tuition payment plan is not a loan, there are no interest or finance charges. For more information or assistance regarding the appropriate amount of your plan contact the Office of Student Accounts at (252) 335-3471 or to apply and setup the plan visit Sallie Mae's website at http://www.tuitionpay.com.

New! Monthly eBill Statements

Effective Spring 2010, Elizabeth City State University provides billing statements electronically using the Electronic Billing (eBill) system to provide tuition bills to enrolled students. Paper billing statements will no longer be mailed to students.  Instructions on how to view the billing statement online have been communicated to students.  Students and authorized users will receive an email notification when a new billing statement is available online.  This is the same system used to make online payments, view billing statements and/or print billing statements, and it can be accessed from any computer.  Because the information is available online, the Office of Student Accounts will not print bills for students.

Any student with an outstanding balance will receive an email notification when the new billing statement is available.  Please note – it is the student's responsibility to ensure that he/she has received the billing statement. Therefore, students should check their campus email for updates periodically.  It is also the responsibility of the student to submit payment by the scheduled due date each semester.  Charges to the account will appear as debits, and payments will appear as credits.

Please understand that the eBill statement will only reflect charges and credits applied to a student's account at the date the bill was generated.  If additional charges are incurred after an eBill statement has been generated, it is the student's responsibility to monitor their student account to ensure that there are sufficient financial aid/resources and/or payments to cover all charges on the account. 

Students and/or parents who have questions pertaining to the financial aid awards are advised to contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at (252) 335-3283.  Partial payments will not secure a student's schedule for the semester.

Please note: Outstanding balances from a prior semester must be paid in full by the due date. Current semester financial aid will not be used to pay out prior semester balances.
