What methods can I use to pay my bill?

1. E-Check/Credit Card

Merrimack College has entered into a partnership with Cashnet to provide e-check and credit-card processing.

Payment via e-check is processed at no cost to the payer.

For those who prefer to use a credit card when making payment, a nonrefundable convenience fee – typically 2% to 3.5% of the amount of payment – will be charged by the servicer to the cardholder at the time of payment. Credit-card payments can be paid using MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express. Any tuition payment made with a credit card must be processed through Cashnet.

Note: E-check and credit-card payments can only be processed through Cashnet. The Bursar’s Office cannot process these forms of payment by phone or in person.

Payment by check will be accepted at the Bursar’s Office or may be mailed to:
