Pay Tuition Online

For your convenience, you can make tuition payments online using your checking or savings account. This method is the most efficient way to make payments and offers additional benefits, such as quicker processing time and paperless transactions. The statement of account will be updated monthly, and you will have access to your account summary online at any time.

You can still make tuition payments by check if you prefer. Also, parents who have enrolled in TMS should continue sending the check to that company.

If you would like to pay the balance due online, log on to the payment website (by clicking the button at right) or refer to the FAQs below before proceeding.

e-Check FAQ

Q

What is an eCheck payment?

A

Paying via eCheck is similar to paying by regular check but instead of mailing the check, you submit the payment information online via a secure form. This allows for faster processing and saves you the trouble of mailing the check.

Q

What is an ABA routing number?

A

The ABA routing number is located in the bottom left corner of a check.

Q

In addition to eCheck, what are the alternative methods for paying tuition?

A

You may send a check to:

ECFS
P.O. Box 30679
New York, NY 10087-0679

You may enroll in Tuition Management Systems (TMS) for monthly payments.

Q

Can I pay only part of the tuition statement by eCheck and the rest via some other means?

A

Yes. In the payment section, you can change the amount before proceeding to the payment submission page.

What are the 'incidental' charges mentioned on my balance?

A

Incidental expenses include tuition insurance and late fees. A 1.5% late fee is charged to any outstanding balance after 30 days.

A

In that case, the payment would not be processed. Your bank may or may not charge you a fee.

If the check bounces due to insufficient funds, the school will charge you an additional fee of $35.00. Your bank may also charge you a fee.
