As part of the annual fee schedule approved by the Board of Governors, Missouri State University credit card policy is as follows:
Missouri State University accepts MasterCard, Discover, American Express and VISA. The Bursar will accept these cards at its payment kiosk only.
Missouri State University's third party processing company's practice is to charge a 2.75 percent convenience fee.
Missouri State University wants to provide students and their families a range of options for paying their educational expenses. Credit card payment methods, however, have become prohibitively expensive because of the fees charged by credit card companies for credit card transaction processing. Previously, this fee has been paid by the University and by all students, regardless of whether they used credit cards for payment or not. With the new system, only those who opt to pay using a credit/debit card incur the 2.75 percent fee charged by the third party company.
You can avoid paying the convenience fee by paying online with an e-check, an electronic withdrawal from your checking or savings account. You may also mail a check to Missouri State University.
No. The convenience fee is not refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is cancelled, refunded, credited or charged back.
Yes. If you use your debit card like a credit card to pay your student account charges, you will be charged the 2.75 percent convenience fee. For checking or savings account debits, please use the e-check option to avoid paying the convenience fee.
No. The fee does not apply to credit card payments made directly at the Bookstore, Taylor Heath Center or ticketing offices.
