How to Pay Your Bill

Online payment (Credit Card or eCheck) is the University at Buffalo’s preferred payment method. When paying online, payments are posted to the student account in real-time. For release of an unpaid bill hold, please allow 24-48 hours after payment has been posted to your account.

  • The University at Buffalo is committed to maintaining the security of customer information and follows best practices, as directed by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) for protecting payment card information. To be compliant with these standards, UB will not store any sensitive cardholder data. Credit card payments on a student account are not accepted by mail, telephone, or in person at Student Accounts at 1Capen.
  • Online payment on account will be done in your HUB Student CenterAuthorized payers may pay online as well.
  • You are able to pay your bill and review your account through your HUB Student Center. Payments received before 6:00 p.m. (EST) on any day will be credited to your account as of that day. Payments received after 6:00 p.m. (EST) on any day will be credited to your account the following day. To avoid a late fee, payments must be posted by 6:00 p.m. (EST) on a payment due date.

Methods of Payment

If You Overpay and Have a Credit Balance

If you have a credit balance on your account, you will receive an automatic refund beginning the third week of classes. Refunds will be given in the form of a check or a refund to the credit card originally used for payment. To receive your refund faster, sign up for direct deposit by logging into your HUB Student Center. Click on Billing / Payments and then click on Payment Options.  You will then be brought into QuikPAY where you can click on Manage Refunds in the menu.

Wire Transfers

Wire transfer payments should be not be made in excess of the semester cost of attendance. Where the intent is to provide a student with funds for personal expenses, those should be wired directly to the student’s local bank account. Please note, wire transfer payments received in excess of cost of attendance may be wired back to the originating account in its entirety.

Currently, credit balances as a result of a valid wire transfer payment will be refunded via direct deposit or paper check.

Returned Checks

If your payment is refused by your bank, UB will add $20.00 in charges to your total account in addition to a late payment fee if applicable. You will be required to make future payments with a credit card through QuikPAY  or secured funds (i.e. certified bank check or money order).

Declined Credit Cards

You will be notified if your payment has been denied by your bank. A late payment fee will be applied to your account if applicable.
