Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences students who need to make a payment can view payment instructions.

Please note that if you make a payment after your term bill due date, you will be assessed a late payment charge of $125

Electronic Checks

E-check transactions are electronic withdrawals from either your checking or savings bank account. Payment with e-check is the most secure and convenient way to pay your tuition and fees and offers the following benefits:

  • No waiting on lines or paying for postage
  • No additional fees or percentages charged for the electronic check
  • Payments are applied to your account faster, eliminating the check transit time in the mail
  • E-checks are safe and secure, no more lost or stolen paper checks

When you review your term bill and confirm your attendance online, you will be required to enter bank information and your email address. Click to view instructions for completing the e-check payment process via your online student account.

  • E-checks through the web are accepted.
  • No money market, investment accounts, or credit cards accounts are accepted.
  • No additional fee is charged for the e-check.
  • If your e-check is returned as unpaid from the bank, a $60.00 returned payment fee is assessed. The $60 fee consists of a $50 administrative fee and a $10 returned check charge assessed by our payment processor when a payment fails. You may also be assessed additional late fees if you fail to make payment by the due date indicated on your student statement of account.
  • Any payments not honored by the bank will be redeposited and will incur applicable late and penalty fees.
