Paying by e-check is a fast and secure method to electronically pay your bill. 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 and authorized payers must be invited to create an eSuite account in order to make electronic check payments towards a student's balance.
Benefits of e-Checking
- 24/7 available access: You can pay your bill online from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- Convenience: No waiting on lines
- Reliable and Faster: Your payments are applied to your student account real-time, eliminating the 3 to 10 day check mailing time.
- Security: eCheck is safe and secure. Your check cannot become lost or stolen.
Payments can only be made from checking accounts with U.S. financial institutions. You cannot use savings accounts, debit cards, 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.
