How can I make a payment online?

An electronic payment can be made on eBill through a checking or savings account or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express). To get to eBill to make a payment, go to http://ebill.umsl.edu. Students will click the Student Login button and Authorized Payers (parents/others) will click the Authorized Payer Login button.

Can I pay on my student account with my credit card?

  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards are accepted for payment online at http://ebill.umsl.edu  from any computer on campus or any computer with internet access.  A service fee of 2.75% of the amount charged will be added to each payment made by credit card. This service charge was set by the third-party credit card processor.
  • There is a payment kiosk available, just outside the Cashier’s Office for your convenience.  Two additional payment kiosks are located inside the Cashier’s Office and a fourth is situated on the third floor of the MSC between the offices of Financial Aid and Admissions.  

Why is there a service charge for credit card payments?

While credit card payments offer a convenient way for students and parents to make payments on the student account, the cost to the University for providing this convenience has grown to approximately $2,000,000 annually.  In our current budget situation, the University must examine all the charges we pay.  Therefore, the University has decided to require those who use this convenience to cover its cost.

What address should I use if I am paying my bill through my banks’ online bill pay service?

Please use our UMSL Campus address for electronic payments through your bank: 
    
University of Missouri -St. Louis 
Cashier's Office
One University Blvd.
St Louis MO 63121-4400

How can I avoid paying the 2.75% credit card payment service charge?

We offer the following forms of payment at no additional charge:

  • Payment in cash is accepted at the Cashier’s office teller stations.
  • Payment can be made by check or money order in person at the Cashier’s office or submitted through the payment drop box located just outside of the Cashier’s office.
  • Electronic check payment can be made from a checking or savings account using your banks routing number and account number. Available at http://ebill.umsl.edufrom any computer with internet access or from any of the four payment kiosks located in the MSC.
  • Pin based debit cards are accepted at the Cashier’s office teller stations.

Why can't I use a credit card at the Cashier’s window?

Credit card rules say that service charges must be charged for all payment types for a given payment location.  Consequently, if we allowed credit card payments at the cashier's stations, we would also have to add the service charge to check and cash transactions.  Therefore, we had to move all credit card payment processing to a third-party credit card processor.  There is a payment kiosk available, just outside the Cashier’s Office for your convenience.  Two additional payment kiosks are located inside the Cashier’s Office and a fourth is situated on the third floor of the MSC between the offices of Financial Aid and Admissions. You could also make a payment from any computer on campus or from any public computer with internet access.

 Will my payment post to my student account right away?

Yes.  Payments made on eBill will post to your student account right away.  You will also receive immediate confirmation of your payment being made.

 Will it be easy for my parent’s to access the eBill site to make payments on my behalf?

Login to the eBill site, then add who you want to be an authorized payer. For help in setting up an authorized payer, see the Cashier's MyView Help page. Your parents/authorized user will receive an email with instructions on how to login to ebill. Once logged in, parents/authorized users will be able to make payments or view your student account and make payments depending on the access that you granted them.

If I make a credit card payment and then later receive a refund back on my credit card, will I be refunded the “service fee” too?

The fee is charged by the processing company and is not subject to refund.
