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:
- Payments in person: Payments are accepted 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.

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.
