A nonrefundable convenience fee will be added to all card payments. This charge is assessed by and paid directly to our payment processor CASHNet SMARTPAY - Higher One, Inc.  The fee is as follows: Domestic Cards - 2.85% ($3 minimum) International Cards - 4.25% ($3 minimum)

Using your debit card?  Consider paying by Bank Account instead.  Bank Accounts payments have no additional cost to you. You DO NOT use the numbers off of your card. Instead, you use the routing and account number from the underlying bank account your debit card is associated with.  If you do not have a blank check to obtain these numbers, your bank can provide you with the appropriate routing and account numbers for payment.

International Payments

A foreign currency payment can be initiated via MyRED. After you have completed the requested fields, you will be presented with the payment methods available to you.  Your quoted exchange rate is valid for 72 hours, and a new quote must be obtained each time payment is made or if this timeframe expires. Once the payment is recieved via Convera, the payment will post to your student account on MyRED. Until this settlement, the payment is only PENDING and will nto be seen on MyRED.
