Payment Methods

Texas A&M utilizes online statements and electronic payments in its efforts to provide timely financial information to students and to control costs. Student account payment options include:


Students can view their account and make online payments using E-Checks, American Express, Discover Card or MasterCard by selecting “Pay Bill/Manage Account” on the My Finances tab in the Howdy portal. Payments made with credit cards will incur a convenience fee charged at the time of payment. Payments made with credit cards will incur a 2.25% convenience fee minimum charge of $3.00. Additional forms of payment accepted include: personal check, cashier’s check, wire transfer and Pin Debit. (Please Note: Once an online payment transaction has occurred, the convenience fee is non-refundable).


  • Checks – Students may still use paper checks for payments. The University reserves the right to utilize check conversion technology to convert paper checks into electronic format.
  • Cashier checks
  • Money orders


  • Cash is not accepted.

Any payment that is rejected for payment by the paying bank, credit card company or other financial institution is subject to returned item charges of $30 or more. Rejected payments may also result in cancellation of the student’s registration and additional late registration penalties if the student is required to re-register on or after the first day of classes.
