Can I pay my tuition bill with a credit card?
Colgate does not accept tuition payment by credit card.
Can I wire money to pay my tuition bill?
Yes, Colgate does accept wire transfers of funds for tuition payments. Contact the Student Accounts office at 315-228-7812 for further assistance.
If I have a credit balance on my account, how can I receive the credit?
Credit that exists from payment of financial aid at the end of the drop/add period will be refunded automatically (usually within two weeks after the end of drop/add). Students with direct deposit set-up will receive their credit directly into their bank account. Students that do not have direct deposit will receive a check at their Colgate mailbox. Non-aided students may request their credit by contacting Student Accounts.
Where do I pay my fines?
Fines appear on your tuition account and you can pay the same way you would pay your tuition online. We recommend this type of payment so that you can avoid standing in line at the Cashier's window. However, the cashier is available to accept payment of your fines Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The cashier's window is located on the ground floor of James B. Colgate Hall. Students can also make payment by check through the campus mail system. Make checks payable to "Colgate University" and be sure to include your name, ID number, and a note indicating that you are paying fines.
