How can I pay my tuition?

Options are listed below:

  1. Directly wire funds to the university.
  2. Open up a local bank account at First Miami and pay the University online or write a check with your account. Have more flexibility to trace and manage your money in case errors happen during a tuition payment transaction.
  3. Pay by credit card. It is convenient but you will be charged a convenience fee that is 2.9% for bills up to $3,000 and 2.3% for any amount over $3,000.

Note: pay on time to avoid a $150 late fee.
