Students can now make electronic check payments online using a U.S. checking or U.S. savings account. No more writing checks! We encourage you to use this method of payment to avoid the 2.85 percent convenience fee assessed on credit or debit card payments.
Follow these steps to make an electronic check payment from a U.S. checking or U.S. savings account:
- Log in to my.newschool.edu.
- Click on the Services tab.
- Click "Make payments online" under Student Accounts. A new window will open.
- Click "Make Payment."
- Select "Amount due," enter the amount to be paid, click "Add" to the right of the amount, and then click "Continue."
- Select the payment method from the drop-down menu: Electronic Check (checking/savings).
- Follow the instructions to complete your payment.
- Log in as an authorized user to the ePay site.
- Use your email address and password to log in.
If you have problems logging in, please use the email password option located directly below the Authorized User log-in. Reset your password and wait 20 minutes before attempting to log in again. If you still have problems logging in, please notify the student and ask them to delete you as an authorized user and then set you up again as an authorized user.
- Once logged in, click on Make payment on the account.
We recommend submitting a paper check payment to our office 14 business days or more before the payment due date of the term to allow for official clearance of the check.
Returned Check Policy
All checks returned from the bank are automatically redeposited for payment. If for any reason a check does not clear for payment after being deposited a second time, a penalty of $30 is charged to the student's account. The university cannot presume that the student has withdrawn from classes because the check has not cleared or has been stopped; payment and penalty remain due. Payment for the amount of the returned check and the $30 returned check fee must be made with a certified bank check or money order; another personal check will not be accepted.
An additional 10 percent penalty is charged if payment for a returned check is not received within five business days. After a second returned check, all future charges must be paid with a certified bank check or money order. Personal checks will no longer be accepted from the student. If it becomes necessary to forward an account to a collection agency, an additional 10 percent penalty will be charged on the remaining account balance.
