eBill and ePayments

eBill and ePayment Services

In response to the high expectations of consumers today, and increased vulnerability of data and identity theft nationwide, the State University of New York at Fredonia has partnered with TouchNet to provide a secure environment for online services. TouchNet solutions have allowed us to automate our office services and provide a campus-wide eCommerce solution by securing sensitive payment information. By helping us meet our strict data security requirements, TouchNet has enabled us to provide you with several online services. TouchNet Commerce Management System has been certified to be in compliance with the Payment Application - Data Security Standard (PA-DSS).

 Access to eBill + ePayment services - Convenient links to secure self-service site: Authorized users (parents/guardians) access the TouchNet site directly and Students access through the eBill link on 'Your Connection'. You will have access 24/7 to the following information and services: eBilling statements, email notification, payment reminders, receipts, account activity including updated balance due amounts, secure web-based processing of payments for account balances and advance deposits, FIPP payment plan options, and the ability to provide access to authorized users who may be paying bills on your behalf! See more below.

 

eBill is the official method of sending student account billing statements to current students. Fredonia does not send out paper billing statements; however, students desiring a paper statement can print their own through the TouchNet eBill system. Students can view their monthly billing statements by logging onto ’Your Connection’ and selecting the eBill link. Make sure to have the pop-up blockers turned off so you can view your eBill! Students also receive notification to their official Fredonia student email address whenever a new statement is posted or if any account activity takes place after the eBill is posted. Students can opt for text messages as well! 

Checking/Savings ACH, MasterCard, Visa, American Express & Discover.  

The student or authorized user can have their payment taken directly out of their checking or savings account eliminating the need to write a paper check.  You control when you make your payments and can schedule automatic payments as well.

Students can always print a copy of the eBill for sending paper checks via US Mail. Send payments to Fredonia Student Accounts Office, 306 Maytum Hall, Fredonia, NY, 14063.

Fredonia has partnered with Flywire to simplify the payment process for our international students. Flywire offers excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, compared to traditional banks. You will be able to track the progress of your payment throughout the transfer process via a student dashboard and you will also be notified via email when your payment is received by Fredonia.

FIPP (Fredonia Installment Payment Plans) allow you to divide your payments into 2, 3 or 4 payments per semester. With your first eBill each semester, you may choose to pay your balance due in full by the due date or sign up for one of the payment plans offered. You will see your options on your secure eBill TouchNet site. This may be a convenient option for students who do not have authorized financial aid in place prior to the due date. By selecting a payment plan, once financial aid is approved, the remaining payments are recalculated. This gives students extra time to pay and work out their financial aid issues. There is a small convenience fee charged which is included in your first payment.

We believe that eBill offers many advantages over paper statements:

  • supports Fredonia’s Go Green Sustainability efforts  - eBills replace their physical equivalent, therefore, saving paper (trees), printing and distribution costs while providing a more secure option for payments
  • payments made online post to the student account immediately preventing costly delays and late fees
  • eBills are received immediately after processing with no delays in mailing allowing students and authorized users more time to plan their payment strategy
  • students and authorized users can view an online history of eBills, account activity and payment history
  • it's easy and convenient, allowing access 24/7
  • it's private and secure
  • saves time and money for both students and the university

  • Electronic Checks are ACH payments and they require entering the routing and account numbers of either a savings or checking account from US banks. When using E-Check payments, DO NOT USE home equity checks, credit card checks, starter checks, traveler's checks, or money orders, etc, as they will bounce. Payments may also be returned by the bank as bad checks if you typed your numbers incorrectly, if you have insufficient funds, or if your account is closed. There is a $20.00 Bounce Fee added to your student account in addition to what your bank charges you. E-Check payments can only be reversed by calling the Student Accounts Office at 716-673-3236 before 3:30 on the same day that the payment was made.
