There is no one right way to pay for an education—each family situation is unique. Most families use a combination of payment options.
The options listed below may be used individually or in combination. If you would like assistance determining the best option for your family, please contact our office and your counselor will discuss your options with you.
The fall 2017 tuition bill payment is due by August 9, 2017, and the spring 2018 tuition bill payment is due by December 15, 2017. Tuition bills are available via EC Online Services in early July for fall semester, and mid-November for spring semester. You may provide parents, and/or others, their own access to view your tuition bill, and/or make payment, by clicking on "Manage Account Access" from your tuition bill home screen.
Accounts that are paid late will be delinquent and charged a late fee.
Checks, ACH and Wire Transfers
E-Checks and Personal Checks
Online Automated Clearing House (ACH) e-check payments may be made via EC Online Services on MySaints using your student login, or at www.emmanuel.afford.com using the option "Make a One-Time Payment" (student login not required). There is no fee charged for paying online with an e-check.
Checks may also be made payable to Emmanuel College and mailed to:
Office of Student Financial Services

A fee of $25 will be charged for any dishonored check, in addition to any late payment fees. Foreign check collection fees will be charged when applicable. Please include the student name and ID number on all checks.

Emmanuel welcomes all college savings plans. If you have a college savings plan such as a 529 plan, please contact the plan provider to have the funds transferred to Emmanuel College.
If you are using a pre-paid tuition plan to pay for tuition, such as the UPlan, please provide the Office of Student Financial Services with the provider name and the amount you will be using for the upcoming academic year. Once we receive this information, we will credit your account and ensure the timely receipt of payment from the plan provider.
Credit/debit card payments may be made online via EC Online Services on MySaints using your student login, or at www.emmanuel.afford.com using the option "Make a One-Time Payment" (student login not required).
Students and families who choose to make payments with a credit/debit card will be assessed a 2.99% convenience fee, which is retained by a third-party service provider. This fee may be avoided by paying with a checking or savings account on the same website. Online bank (or ACH) payments allow funds to be transferred to the College from a designated bank using the bank's routing and account numbers.
