Paying Your ACU Bill

Electronic bills (eBills) are available within the first week of the month. Students will receive an email notification in their ACU email account stating that their eBill is available in the Wildcat Pay Portal. All charges are due according to the terms on the eBill. Official notification regarding the eBill and other university business is sent to the ACU student email account. Students are responsible for this information and any action that may be required by receiving this information.

To reach financial settlement each semester, students must either: pay the net balance in full, enroll in a Wildcat Pay Plan for the entire net balance, or have an approved loan in place to cover the balance.

Note: Wildcat Pay Plans are not available to ACU Online Program students.
