  • E-check transactions are electronic withdrawals from your checking or savings bank account. This is the most secure and convenient way to pay your tuition and fees, and there is no additional fee or charge to pay by e-check.  

    If the bank returns your e-check as unpaid, Rutgers will assess a $60 returned payment fee. The $60 fee consists of a $50 administrative fee and a $10 returned check charge. Any payments not honored by the bank will be redeposited and will incur applicable late and penalty fees. 

    Please allow 3-5 days for your payment to be reflected on your online term bill. You will not be charged a late fee during processing time.
