Information on how to pay your student's bill

Cashier & Student Accounts

The Student Account Center on is where your student will pay their bill, enroll in a payment plan, save a payment method and set up direct deposit account for refunds.

Paying Your Bill

Watch for an email from letting your student know the semester bill is ready. Payment can be made online via or in-person with cash, personal check, money order or cashier check at our cashier window on the first floor of Plumb Hall.

Payment Schedule

Tuition and fees are due on the fifth day of class. If your student is enrolled in a payment plan, the first payment is due on the fifth day of class and on the 20th of each month for three more months.

Authorized User Form

Similar to the financial aid office, once your student becomes a Hornet, federal regulations protecting their privacy prevents ESU from speaking to you about your student’s account. Students must complete the Authorized User Form in their student account giving us permission to share information with you. This is a separate form from the financial aid office.
