*Card users will be assessed a separate, non-refundable convenience fee - 2.75% of the payment amount ($3 minimum fee) - at the time of each credit or debit card payment for student accounts. Non-refundable convenience fees will be processed by the Third Party processor, Payment Service (PayPath) and will appear as a separate charge on your credit card statement. Additional forms of payment accepted include: Cash, personal check, cashier's check, money order, electronic check (ACH), and wire transfer. Please Note: Once an online card payment transaction has occurred, the Convenience Fee is non-refundable.

eCheck (ACH) payments will continue to be processed in the Wildcat Pay Portal without a convenience fee.  

ACU will continue to accept check payments by mail at:

Abilene Christian University
ACU Box 29117

Please do not send cash through the mail.

If you would prefer to make a payment in person, Wildcat Central (located in McGlothlin Campus Center) will accept cash, personal checks, cashier's checks, and money orders.
