for using this site
This site offers the CASHNet SMARTPAY service (the "Service"), which enables you, the student, and your parent, legal guardian or other third party to pay tuition, fees and other charges. To use the Service, you must have authority to make charges to the credit card or checking account you are using. Not all sites offer payment by both credit card and electronic check. If you are under 18 years of age, you must obtain the authorization of your parent or other responsible adult before making payments on this site.
This site is not for use by children. If you are under 13, please do not submit any personal or other information to us.
You may use this Service to pay charges for tuition, other student services, and the service charges described below, by credit card or electronic check. Your credit card company or bank will make payment to your school through CASHNet. By the end of the business day following receipt of funds, CASHNet will post a payment to your account at the school, subject to withholding or off-set for disputed amounts, chargebacks, reversals, refunds and the like ("Chargebacks"). Your institution has agreed to credit your account upon receipt of CASHNet's payment notice. CASHNet will hold your payment in its bank deposit account and will transfer your payment to the institution within ten days of receipt, subject to Chargebacks. You agree to indemnify and hold CASHNet harmless from any liability in connection with such payment, and, once CASHNet has made such payment to your institution, you agree to pursue any claim for recovery or reduction of such payment solely against your institution and not against CASHNet Funds in CASHNet's deposit account will not bear interest for you.
When you use this Service to make a payment, CASHNet may add a service charge for your use of the CASHNet SMARTPAY service (a "Service Charge"). Service Charges are paid to CASHNet If a service charge applies to your transaction, you will be informed of the amount of the Service Charge prior to the completion of your transaction, and you will be given the option to either cancel the transaction and thus not incur any Service Charge, or to proceed with completing the transaction. The amount of the Service Charge is added to your payment so that one amount appears on your credit card or checking account statement. The Service Charge is not a fee or charge assessed by your institution. BY USING THIS SERVICE YOU AGREE TO PAY ANY ASSOCIATED SERVICE CHARGES. The service charge is not refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is cancelled, refunded, credited or charged back. Your institution has the option to absorb the Service Charge on selected items. In addition, Service Charges may be added to payments for charitable contributions to your institution. Please consult your institution for more information about the items for which it has elected to absorb the Service Charge. There is no charge for informational transactions, for example when you log on to CASHNet SMARTPAY to confirm transactions or view open account balances.
