Due dates, interest, and billing charges

Are there interest and billing charges for late payments?
Interest and billing charges are assessed on past due balances after the 10th of each month. The billing fee is $6.00 and the annual interest rate is 9%.
How are the interest charges calculated?
Interest and billing charges are assessed on past due balances after the 10th of each month. The billing fee is $6.00 and the annual interest rate is 9%. The Periodic Rate of Interest is three-fourths (.75%) percent per month, or fraction hereof.

Interest charges on an account are applied monthly to the "past due balance" remaining on the account as of the 10th of the month. The Interest charge is calculated by multiplying the past due balance times the periodic interest rate (.75%).

Credit Card and other electronic payments

How can students make an electronic payment?
Electronic payments are private, secure, and a fast, convenient method for paying the bill from anywhere in the world. E-payment is an option feature of the QuikPAY system. Checking and savings account information from a bank within the United States can entered at the QuikPAY website and payments will be transferred electronically to the University of Oregon. You will have the option to have the site retain your bank account information or you may enter it each time you make an E-payment.

To make an E-payment access QuikPAY from the "Student Menu" on Duckweb. Once within QuikPAY, click on "Make a Payment," and enter the required bank information.

How can Authorized Payers make an electronic payment?
Once an authorized payer is established s/he can make payments through the QuikPAY system. Checking and savings account information from a bank within the United States can be entered at the QuikPAY website and payments will be transferred electronically to the University of Oregon. There will be the option to have the site retain bank account information. Authorized payers will only be able to view their own payments and bank information. Each authorized payer is assigned a separate password for added security and privacy.
Can the student billing account be paid with a credit card?
Credit card payments can be made using the QuikPAY system only. Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit cards are accepted.

The university has contracted with a third party to provide the ability to make credit card payments through the QuikPAY system. There will be a separate fee (2.75%) charged by the third party to the credit card account for processing the credit card transactions. The service charge is not refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is cancelled, refunded, credited or charged back.

Why is a fee being charged for the use of my credit card?
The UO is committed to providing students and their families a range of options for paying their educational expenses. Each credit card company imposes a processing fee on all credit card transactions. The service fee allows UO to devote 100% of the payment amount to academic programs and services for students.
Why is the service fee 2.75%? How was that percentage established
2.75% is the amount established by our third party credit card processor, NelNet Business Solutions, to cover the credit card transaction fees assessed by credit card companies.
Is there any way I can avoid paying a service fee?
You can avoid paying the 2.75% service fee by paying online through our QuikPAY system with an Echeck - an electronic debit to your checking or savings account. Payments can also be mailed or delivered to the Cashiers Office with no service fee to the address below. Always include the name and student ID number on the check.
