Payment Options

Payment Methods

Students are always able to combine out-of-pocket payments with financial aid, outside resources, loans, or a monthly payment plan to customize a payment arrangement that best meets their needs. The student’s campus ID number is required for all payments. 


Online Payments

  • Manhattan College accepts both credit card and e-check payment online through Self-Service. There is no surcharge fee for online payments toward a student account balance.
  • Credit cards accepted for payment are MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.
  • An e-check is an electronic withdrawal from a checking or savings account at a domestic (U.S.) bank account. Individuals who wish to write e-checks against another type of account (credit card, home equity line of credit, money market account, mutual fund, etc.), must contact their financial institution to verify that electronic checks can be written against that account.

Wire transfer payments are initiated at your bank. Below is the information required to provide to your bank to be sure the transfer is processed successfully.

If your bank charges a fee for the wire, you need to pay that in addition to the amount you wish to wire.  A receipt of your wire should be sent to studentaccounts@manhattan.edu or faxed to 718-862-8027 to ensure it is appropriately credited to the student tuition account in a timely manner.
