5. Why does UND only accept credit card payments online?
During the 2005-2006 academic year, UND paid almost $800,000 in credit card processing fees. Due to surcharges from credit card processing, many colleges and universities do not accept credit card payments at all. Because we cannot continue to justify paying these fees, UND considered dropping this payment option. However, we recognize that many students and their families appreciate the convenience of using a credit card, so we searched for acceptable alternatives.

You must notify us no later than 60 days after we send you the first balance due notification e-mail or billing statement (non-students) regarding the disputed charge(s). You may telephone us, but doing so will not preserve your right to appeal.
In your letter, provide us with the following information:
- Your name and Student ID number
- Identify the disputed charge, including the amount, and why you believe there is an error
Or submit an Online Campus Connection Charge Appeal Form.
This form is to be used by students who request an exception to the Withdrawal Tuition/Fee Refund Policies due to extenuating circumstances beyond their control.
**Any supporting documentation must be emailed to UND.studentaccounts@UND.edu.
All appeals must be submitted within the semester that the charge posted to the account.
While we investigate your dispute a hold may be placed on your account.
*Any exceptions will be approached on a case by case basis.
7. I did not receive an email notification when I have a balance outstanding. What should I do?
Verify that your account has a balance owing. If your account has a balance and you still did not receive a balance notification, verify that your UND Email account has been activated. All registered students will receive balance notifications electronically through the University assigned Email account. UND Policy states that "a University assigned Email email account shall be the University's official means of communication with all students on the UND campus. Students can expect to receive official information regarding deadlines, policy/procedure changes, changes in degree requirements, special events, course schedule changes, regulatory changes, emergency notices, as well as other useful information from the Registrar, Office of Financial Aid, the Provost's office, Dean of Students, the Graduate School and information from academic departments. Students are responsible for all information sent to them via their University assigned email account."
If your UND Email account has been activated, please verify that your email inbox is not "over quota" or full. Full inboxes will reject incoming email. Make sure that you have not blocked the Student Account Services email address.
If you continue to have problems receiving your email, please contact UND Tech Support at 701-777-6305.
8. Do I have to pay the entire balance in one payment?
Students must pay their entire balance by the due date. If current term charges are not received by the posted deadline, you may be assessed a late payment penalty and your semester registration may be canceled. If your account balance is delinquent, you will be ineligible to register for future semesters or receive official academic transcripts.
Another alternative may be a payment plan, view the link for more information regarding a possible payment plan.
9. How do I know if I have a Student Account Services hold on my account? How do I clear it up?
A Student Account Services hold, referred to as a "negative service indicator", will appear as a hold on your "Holds & To Do List," on Campus Connection. Please visit Student Center > Holds or To Do List. If you pay the outstanding balance on your account, the Student Account Services hold will be removed automatically during overnight processing. If you have any questions regarding a Student Account Services hold, you should contact Student Account Services at 701-777-3911 or UND.studentaccounts@UND.edu
10. I am being billed the non-resident tuition rate, but think I should be billed the ND resident rate. What should I do?
Students are responsible for their residency status and should verify their status each semester. Residency for tuition purposes is governed by North Dakota State Board of Higher Education Policy 504 and North Dakota Century Code Section 15-10-19.1. More information on residency can be found under Residency Information on Student Account Services website at: UND.edu/finance-operations/student-account-services/residency.cfm
If you qualify for North Dakota resident tuition, you should submit a residency application to Student Account Services by the deadline. Applications received and approved after the deadline will be effective the next term.
11. I have a graduate assistantship tuition waiver. How is this credited to my account?
Graduate assistantships are processed through the Graduate School. If your assistantship tuition waiver is not appearing on your account, you should contact the Graduate School at 701-777-2948 or email gradschool@UND.edu
12. My company/government/other agency will pay all or part of my bill. What should I do?
If the agency gives you a letter authorizing the University to bill your tuition and fees directly to them, you should submit the paperwork to Student Account Services by the posted deadline shown on the Calendar. If the agency needs to see the grade you earned for the course before paying tuition, you must pay the original bill and have the agency reimburse you after grades are posted. If you have additional questions about 3rd Party Billings, you should contact Student Account Services at 701-777-3911 or UND.studentaccounts@UND.edu
13. My family member or another outside party handles my bills. How will they get the necessary information?
It is the student's responsibility to forward all account information to the family member or agency. The student is responsible for ensuring that all payments are received by the deadline. You will need to set them up as an authorized user to your Campus Connection account. Please visit Student Center > Pay Online Now > Authorized Users, for instructions to do so, or if you want the University to release financial information, you must have an electronic FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) form on file specifically to whom the information may be released. The electronic FERPA release form can be found under Forms - Student > Privacy Release Form (FERPA).
14. Do I have to pay the student fees?
All registered students are charged tuition, mandatory fees, applicable course fees, and applicable professional program fees. Unless you are receiving a specific waiver, you are expected to pay all tuition and fees by the due date. If you have questions concerning your tuition and fee charges, you should contact Student Account Services at 701-777-3911 or UND.studentaccounts@UND.edu

22. What is TouchNet?
TouchNet is the third party vendor with whom the North Dakota University System has contracted to provide for secure online payments and with whom UND additionally has contracted to process online credit card payments on student accounts.
23.Why are we using a third party vendor for processing credit card transactions?
UND has been absorbing the credit card processing fees charged by credit card companies. These fees have been increasing at an alarming rate. Although some colleges and universities have chosen to no longer accept credit or debit cards, we felt that with the high number of credit card payers we have, it would be a disservice to our University communities if we eliminated them altogether. The vendor, TouchNet, has the expertise in online payment systems to meet all security and privacy issues and meets the banking and credit card industry compliance requirements. Our contract with them ensures that the processes are compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act.
24. Can I pay my tuition and fees with a credit card?
American Express, Discover Card and MasterCard can be used to pay student charges online. If you use a credit card to pay your bill, a 2.75% (min. $3) service charge will be charged by and payable to TouchNet. You will not be charged a fee if you pay online by e-Check. UND does not accept credit or debit card payments at Student Account Services teller windows.
26.Why is VISA not accepted?
VISA's credit card rules will not permit a company/vendor to a charge a percentage service charge. Also, to accept VISA cards, VISA would require the University to apply a service charge fee for e-Check transactions rather than e-Checks being a free service to the student or authorized user.
27.Are other colleges and universities making similar changes in processing credit card transactions?
Yes. The University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin, and University of South Dakota have recently implemented online payment systems with service fees similar to what we are doing. Other Universities not accepting VISA include Indiana University, University of Illinois, Syracuse University, University of Nebraska and University of Texas. A number of colleges and universities are not accepting credit card payments at all, but UND searched for alternative options that would permit credit card payments.
28. What are the benefits or cost savings by contracting with TouchNet?
The benefits to you, the student will be: you will be able to make payments at your convenience, you will not have to stand in line to pay Campus Connection charges, you will not have to come to campus to make a payment and you will not have to fear a late payment charge due to a delay in surface mail.
