Methods of Payment

The University of Mary Washington accepts several methods of payment for charges on a student’s account. Use the links at left for detailed information about the following payment methods:

Making a Payment – direct payments in the form of cash, check, money order or cashier’s check

EagleOne Payments – accepted at the Cashier’s Office to pay incidental charges such as Parking fines, Library fines, Health Center fees, small remaining balances on a Student Account or other miscellaneous charges.

EaglePAY – an online billing and payment system that allows students and Authorized Payers the ability to view and print bills and make payments online.

Financial Aid – awards not included on the billing statement may be deducted from the bill balance, provided the student’s financial awards have been accepted and verified. Please note: All initial financial aid packages are based on full-time enrollment. Enrollment is then reviewed after the add-drop period each semester. At that time, it is determined if changes will be made to financial aid awards based on enrollment.

Payment Plan, Credit Card & ACH Payments – the options to either make one-time payments via credit card and ACH  or set up a payment plan through EaglePAY.

Prepaid Education Programs – prepaid education funding through the Virginia College Savings Plan and other outside agencies.

Tuition Assistance/Third Party Billing – tuition funding through employee, military or rehabilitative assistance programs.

Outside Scholarships – private scholarship funds paid either directly to the University or to the student.


Your UMW Cashier’s Office is committed to reducing paper, ink cartridge and printer use!

Beginning 6/15/2017, details related to payments posted to a student’s account will be directly emailed to the student’s UMW email address.

Responsibility for Payment of University Expenses

Payment of all University education expenses is the responsibility of the student. If a student fails to pay an amount owed, state law allows the University to assess an administrative fee and late payment penalty. Further, all past-due accounts will be submitted to a private collection agency or the Attorney General’s Office for collection as well as credit bureau reporting. The University will recover all collection fees and attorney’s fees from delinquent debtors.
