IUPUI is committed to providing students and their families a range of options for paying their educational expenses, including e-check, check, cash and credit card. The credit card payment method has become prohibitively expensive because of transactions fees charged to the university.
In order to continue to accept credit card payments made with VISA, MasterCard,Discover, and American Express on bursar accounts at IUPUI and IUPUC, a 2.75%* convenience fee (service charge) will be assessed by the third party vendor on the payment amount.
Payments may continue to be made via e-checks, checks and cash without a convenience fee. In addition, IUPUI has a deferment option to assist with payment options for students and their families.
*Note: the 2.75% rate is subject to change.
Please know we are working to maximize alternative payment methods for our students in the most efficient manner. This will allow us to continue to offer payments via credit cards on bursar accounts to those who choose that method without requiring all students to subsidize this payment method.
