Payment FAQs

1. What methods can I use to pay the Summer Welcome fee?

Payments can be made via cash, check, e-check, or credit card.*

*Please note: Credit card payments can only be made online. The University of Missouri provides computer workstations near the Cashier’s office for use by our walk-up customers who wish to make an online payment. A 2.75% fee applies to all credit and debit card payments.

2. What is the 2.75% fee on credit card payments?
  • If you choose to make your payment via debit or credit card, our third-party credit card processor will add a convenience fee of 2.75% to the transaction.
  • To avoid the convenience fee, students and parents are able to make online payments directly from any checking or savings account with a secure Electronic Funds Transfer. Instead of a card number, you will enter your bank/financial institution routing and account number information at the time of online payment.
  • Credit card payments will only be accepted online. The University of Missouri will provide computer workstations near the Cashier’s office for use by our walk-up customers who choose to make an online payment.
3. I paid by e-check and got a notification that the payment was rejected. What happened?

Sometimes this happens if a number was transposed or entered incorrectly. Our office is notified when an e-check payment was attempted but not completed, so this will not affect your reservation and your date will not be cancelled. Please send us a check by mail to New Student Programs, G106 MU Student Center, Columbia, MO 65211.
Your summer welcome account will not reflect the returned e-check until our office is notified by the bank. This step usually takes 3-5 business days and the bank will contact you first and notify our office second.
