Before making payment for tuition and fees, please view the payment option information provided below.

  • We accept American Express, Discover, Visa and Master Card debit and credit cards.
  • Official Payments will charge a service fee of 2.49% of the debit or credit card payment amount for their service.
  • E-check (electronic check) will allow you to make a payment online with no fee.
    • A $25 fee is charged for each e-check returned by the bank for non-sufficient funds (NS).
    • A $5 fee is charged for each e-check returned by the bank for invalid account information.

You may also make payment with a check or money order payable to Mansfield University. Mail your payment to Mansfield University, Student Services, 224 South Hall, 71 South Academy Street, Mansfield PA 16933.

Payment Plan Options for Spring 2015

(January 20 - May 8, 2015)

Payment Option 1: Payment in full for the total balance due by the initial payment due date. The payment must be received by the initial payment due date to avoid a $50 deferred fee.

Initial payment due date: January 7, 2015

Payment Option 2: The deferred payment plan requires the student to pay at least half of the total balance by the initial due date. The remaining half of the balance due, plus a $50 deferred fee, is then required to be paid by the deferred payment due date.

Deferred payment plan due date: March 11, 2015

Note: Additional late fees will be assessed for unpaid balances after the deferred payment due date

Students will receive an email via their MU email informing them when the bill will be ready to view. We no longer mail hard copy bills.
