Paying by Credit Card - Convenience Fee

The cost associated with processing credit cards has continued to grow each year and Roosevelt University wants to continue to offer you, our customers,  the option to pay by credit card.  Unfortunately, the university cannot continue to absorb these costs.

We have contracted with TouchNet PayPath, a third party company, to provide credit card processing services for student accounts and the Roosevelt University community.  By making this change, we will be better equipped to hold down overall cost which will allow us to continue to provide credit card options. We will continue to offer free payment options including online e-check payments.

Our commitment is to providing a quality education for our students by focusing our available resources towards supporting academic programming.

These changes began on September 1, 2011
