Paying Tuition is EZ (easy) with eCheck!

A convenient way to pay your tuition balance is online by using an Electronic check. Students and parents who have a personal checking account with a U.S. financial institution, can make payments through the NYU eSuite. Paying your bill by an electronic check will post to your student account immediately, and will initiate the transfer of funds from your bank account within one to two business days. This service is free of cost.

*Parents must be invited to create an eSuite account in order to make Electronic check payments towards a student's balance.

  1. Students log onto NYU eSuite via the Albert Student Center to make Electronic check payments

  2. Once in the Albert Student Center, click the View Bursar Account link, located under the Finances menu.

Please have the following information available before you proceed:

  1. Amount due
  2. Check Information
    • Bank Routing Number (the nine digit number between the two colons on the bottom left of your check)
    • Checking account number

Before the payment process is complete, the system will:

  1. Inform you of the total amount that will be debited from your checking account.
  2. Allow you to confirm the information provided.
  3. Allow you to print a confirmation and receive an email confirmation of payment.

Payments can only be made from checking accounts with U.S. financial institutions. Note that this is not your debit card number; it is your routing and account number that should be verified with your bank. You cannot use savings accounts, international accounts, money market accounts, e-trade accounts, corporate checks, credit cards, home equity, traveler's checks, etc. If a check is returned, the student will be charged a $20.00 returned check fee and a $25.00 late payment fee. Students will also be prevented from using paper/electronic personal checks in the future.
