Online Payments

Radford University, in partnership with Nelnet Business Solutions, offers a secure site through which you can make online credit card(American Express, Discover,MasterCard and VISA) or e-Check payments to your Radford University student account charges.

There is no fee for the use of e-Check. A 2.7% service charge will be charged by the service provider for processing your credit card payment. This means that the service charge amount is calculated based on 2.7% of your payment amount. The 2.7% service charge is charged to your credit card and will appear as a separate item on your credit card statement. The service charge is not a fee assessed by Radford University. The service charge is not refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is cancelled, refunded, credited or charged back.
