Student Accounting Payment Information

Notice: A service fee will be charged for Credit and Debit Card Payments for Student Account bills beginning Fall 2016.

UNT Health Science Center is happy to provide students a range of options for paying educational expenses. However, those choosing to pay by credit or debit card for the educational expenses billed through Student Finance, will begin paying a 2.7% service fee effective October 1, 2016. The fee covers the cost to UNTHSC for making credit and debit card payments available.

Several payment options remain available without the additional service fee, which are: payments can be made online with an electronic check, you can mail in a check or money order, or you may also pay with cash, check, or money order at the Cashier Window, in the Student Services Center Building, Room 150.

Online payments may be made 24 hours a day through the Student Center. Log onto www.unthsc.edu Then choose MyHSC.

Financial Aid

Accepted Financial Aid will show as Anticipated Aid on your account. If you are expecting aid to cover your bill make sure the Anticipated Aid amount is more than your charges. Some charges may not be paid with federal funds. Therefore, it is possible for you to receive a refund but still have an outstanding balance. It is your responsibility to check your account AFTER you receive your refund and make sure your balance is zero.

If you believe you should be receiving Financial Aid, please make sure you have completed your FAFSA, accepted your aid, and completed the necessary tasks in order for the Financial Aid office to disburse aid to your account. Please log into your MyHSC Student Portal to view and accept aid. You can contact the Financial Aid office at finaid@unthsc.edu or 817 -735-2505.

Payment if You Withdraw from UNTHSC

If you withdraw from UNT Health Science Center, any outstanding balance will be due that day, and if the balance is not paid immediately it will be sent to collections.

FAQs for Service Fees

Why is the University assessing a service fee for credit and debit card payments?

UNTHSC is committed to providing students a range of options for paying educational expenses. However, providing complimentary credit or debit card payment services has become prohibitively expensive because of the processing fees assessed by the credit card companies and financial institutions. The expense is currently paid by University revenue and reduces funds available for other needs.

What is the service fee and how was the percentage established?

The service fee is an additional 2.7% of the payment amount. The service fee is the percentage amount charged by the payment processor to cover the cost of credit and debit card transaction fees assessed by the credit card companies and financial institutions.

Do other colleges and universities assess a service fee for credit and debit card payments?

Yes. Many colleges and universities have implemented a similar convenience or service fee charge for credit and debit card payment.

Are debit card payments also charged the service fee?

Yes. However, you can pay by electronic check to avoid the service fee.

How will the service fee appear on my credit or debit card statement?

The service fee will be listed as a separate transaction.
