To pay your bills by electronic check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover), the university partners with Higher One to provide secure on-line payments, via their CASHNet product, 24 hours a day. Payments made via CASHNet will post to the student's bill within minutes of confirmation.
To make a payment on-line go to the Catalyst Student Portal (https://catalyst.uc.edu) on the "My Dashboard" or "My Finances" tab, then locate the "Account Summary" section in the middle of the page and <click> on the "MAKE A PAYMENT" button. You will be transferred to CASHNet securely hosted by our payment partner, Higher One.
Once the payer is transferred to CASHNet payers will be offered 2 methods of payment, eCheck/ACH or credit card. Please note that there is a non-refundable service fee to pay by credit card. The service fee is 2.75% when using a U.S. credit card and 4.25% when using an international credit card. There is no service fee when paying by eCheck/ACH...it's FREE!
Parents, grandparents, a spouse, etc. who want to pay their student's bill will need to be established as a delegated relationship with the student. To comply with Federal regulations, students must initiate this relationship via the Catalyst Student Portal (https://catalyst.uc.edu). In the "My Dashboard" tab <click> on the "Give Parent/Guest Access" link and follow the instructions.
NOTE: In general, electronic checks and credit card payments should post to the students account with a few minutes of confirmation.
