Credit Cards

We now accept payment by credit card, with a convenience fee, for tuition charges, room and board charges, and technology and general fees. Exceptions to the convenience fee are noted below.

When making a credit card payment, available through “My E-Bill Suite” via PayPath, a convenience fee of 2.95% of the transaction amount is assessed in addition to the amount owed. The amount of the convenience fee will display before you submit payment and will appear as a separate charge on your credit card statement. Make sure to note the total amount of the payment before initiating the transaction.

Once the charge is assessed, the 2.95% fee is NON-REFUNDABLE, even if we refund your credit card for the amount owed. Fordham receives no part of the convenience fee.

PayPath will accept Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express.
