Payment Types Accepted

  • Personal Check (ACH – Electronic Check – No Fee)
  • Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express)

An ACH eCheck is an electronic withdrawal from a checking or savings bank account. No additional fee is charged for online echeck payments unless the electronic check is returned unpaid to the college.  Multiple returned payments may result in the inability to use checks as the payment method.

There are no convenience fees assessed for debit/credit card transactions however the fees are assessed by the credit card processor.  In order to assist Southwestern College with lowering expenses incurred by processing credit card payments, we request that the eCheck be utilized when possible.
