Other Payment Options

There are a few payment options in addition to online payments and the Budget Tuition Plan:

Pay Online

Virginia Tech, in partnership with e-commerce service provider Nelnet Business Solutions, offers an electronic bill and payment system called QuikPAY. The QuikPAY system is used by many universities to manage their on-line billing services. It provides financial account management 24 hours a day 7 days a week and was developed under the highest Internet security standards. More about our online eBill and Payment options here.

Pay by Check

When paying by check, please be certain to write your account number on your check and enclose with it the bottom portion of your statement – the remittance advice. Checks should be made payable to “Treasurer of Virginia Tech”.

Current enrolled students and faculty/staff are sent monthly eBill notifications when a statement is generated and available. Paper bills will not be mailed. While our online bill and payment system is a convenient and secure option, clients may still use the traditional option of using a paper check. If a paper check is used, please access the eBill system and print the [pdf] version of your statement, enclose the bottom portion (remittance) with your check, and mail to the address indicated:

Please be aware that a delay may occur if payment is mailed without remittance advice.

If you are an authorized payer for a current enrolled student, faculty, or staff member you may likewise access the eBill system and print the [pdf] version of the statement.

The Office of the University Bursar must receive the reporting form, sponsor letter and/or check if sent to student from sponsor) by July 1 for pending credit to show on the Fall semester bill and by December 1 for pending credit to show on the Spring semester bill. If received after these dates, and the pending credit does not appear on your billing statement, you can monitor your account on Hokie SPA to determine when the pending credit appears on your account.

Failure to send a sponsor authorization letter by the payment deadline may result in a late fee of 10% of the past due balance (not to exceed $125 per term) and account hold. If payment has not been received from the sponsor before the end of classes for the semester, pending credit will be cancelled and the student will be billed. Students will be notified before pending credit is cancelled.

Payment Option for International Students
