2. Credit Card Payment at the Part-Time MBA Office
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The deadline to pay tuition at the Part-Time MBA office is now aligned with the Student Accounts deadline of April 1st.  Therefore, credit card payments through the Part-Time office will no longer run through the first week of the quarter unless the Student Accounts deadline falls after that.  For Spring Quarter 2014, no credit card payment payments will be processed through the Part-Time MBA office after Tuesday, April 1, which is the second day of the quarter.  A fee of $200.00 will be charged for late payments made to Student Accounts after April 1, 2014.  Below is the payment schedule.  NOTE: Hours are subject to change so please check the payment schedule prior to coming in to pay tuition at the PTMBA office.

Credit cards now accepted: American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa. 

NOTE: Payment of tuition by credit card can only be made IN-PERSON* in the Part-Time MBA Program office on the 2nd Floor Mezzanine. The card must be presented at the time of payment. Payments will not be taken via fax or over the phone under any circumstances.  You do NOT need to present your tuition bill when paying by credit card, but you must print your student ID number on the credit card payment slip (this number can be found on your Wildcard).
