Student Accounts now accepts payment by credit card

The Student Accounts and Cashiers office will now accept credit cards for payment.

The move is in response to a 2012 survey indicating student interest in paying accounts by credit card, even with a convenience fee.

Student Accounts and Cashiers will now accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and the Discover card for payments.

The convenience fee for the service is 1.95 per cent.

Payment by credit card is an online service only and is accessed by clicking the “Pay Now” button on either the student’s Payment Agreement or student Account Statement.

McMaster’s online payment options are the preferred methods of payment for students to pay their university account. In addition to the newly introduced credit card method, the other methods include: online banking, telephone banking, INTERAC online and for international students, Western Union or International Wire Transfer.
