Billing and payments

Virginia Commonwealth University issues bills electronically, and payment is due at the start of the semester. Additional charges and balances are due on or before the date specified on the invoice. Students will be notified at their VCU email address when their eStatement is available. The email is not the eStatement. Students should view their detailed invoice on the billing and payment site.

Note: VCU does not mail paper bills to enrolled students.

Installment Payment Plan

Did you know that VCU offers an Installment Payment Plan? This plan lets qualified students pay their bill in four equal installments throughout each semester.

How to view and pay your bill

Students can access their eStatements through eServices. To make an online payment, select: Student > Student account > Make a payment > eStatements

Assign an authorized user

Students may assign authorized users on the billing and payment website. Authorized users will receive emails when the eStatements are available and can view eStatements and make online payments on behalf of the student.

To assign an authorized user, access eServices and select: Student > Student account > Make a payment > Authorized users.

Authorized user access

Once assigned, an authorized user should go directly to the billing and payment website and sign in with their email address.

Accepted payment methods

The university reserves the right to decline payment from a non-enrolled student who does not owe a balance to VCU.

Personal payments that exceed the student's charges are not encouraged. Total personal payments for the semester that exceed the enrolled student's charges by more than $5,000 may not be refunded to the student. The payment may be applied to a future semester, reversed or returned to the originator of the payment.

VCU accepts the following payment methods:
