Tuition Payment Deadlines
For Spring 2020 sessions the tuition settlement/payment deadlines are:
- Friday, January 3, 2020 (full semester and Term A courses)
- Friday, March 6, 2020 (Term B courses)
To avoid having classes dropped for non-payment, you must either pay your account in full or enroll in a payment plan and pay the required installment by the deadline each semester. A late registration fee of $250 will be assessed for registrations after the deadline.
Full-time students must be registered for 12-18 hours. All financial aid, grants, and scholarships are based on full-time registrations.
To live on campus, you must pay in full or enroll in a payment plan and pay the required installment prior to moving in. You may not have an outstanding balance from a previous term.
No diploma, transcript of credit, or information concerning academic or disciplinary record will be given until your account has been settled. If your account is in arrears, you may be excluded from final examinations, graduation ceremonies, issuance of academic documents and records, and readmission to future academic programs until your account is paid in full.

Credit Card Acceptance and Service Fee Information
Credit and debit card payment processing has become increasingly expensive due to the processing fees charged by credit card companies coupled with the costs associated with securing cardholder data. Christian Brothers University has contracted all credit and debit card processing to TouchNet Information Systems, Inc.
What is TouchNet? TouchNet Information Systems, Inc. is a PCI-PA-DSS-compliant (Payment Card Industry Payment Application Data Security Standard) vendor focused on safeguarding cardholder data for thousands of college students. In fact, TouchNet is the only commerce provider serving higher education that is certified as both PCI-DSS and PA-DSS compliant.
A 2.85% service fee (minimum $3.00 fee) is assessed on all credit and debit card payments processed by TouchNet and they must be processed online. The service fee is established by TouchNet to cover credit card processing costs and will not show up on your student account. It will appear on your credit/debit card statement and is non-refundable. We no longer accept credit/debit card payments at the counter or over the phone, however there are terminals in the Business Office for making these payments online.
TouchNet can be used to make payments online without incurring a fee by choosing the electronic check option. Others (like parents, grandparents, and spouses) can also pay your fees online with either a credit/debit card or via an e-check if you have set them up as an authorized user.
