Christian Brothers University encourages students and parents to use our payment solution partner, CashNet, for making all online payments. Credit Card and Electronic Check payments can be made via CashNet. CBU accepts Mastercard, Visa, and Discover credit cards online and in the business office.
NOTICE: The Business Office at CBU will no longer accept cash over $1,000 as a form of payment per person per day. Please use another form of payment if the amount exceeds $1,000. Options are cashier's check, money orders, checks, or credit/debit cards.
Settling Your Account refers to the process of making the necessary financial arrangements to pay for your tuition so that you will be allowed to attend classes. 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. For Spring 2019 the deadline is Friday, January 4, 2019.
CBU offers two installment payment plans. The 5-month payment plan has an enrollment deadline of December 15 and runs through April. The 4-month payment plan has an enrollment deadline of January 4 and runs through April. There is a $40 service fee per semester to participate in a payment plan. The first installment of the payment plan (down payment of 20% of the account balance) is due at the time of enrollment. Subsequent installments are due on the 1st of each month. The student must enroll in a payment plan even if someone else will be making the monthly payments on their behalf. You must have registered for classes before enrolling in a payment plan, and you must not have an outstanding balance from a previous term.
Interest is charged monthly on payment plan outstanding balances at a rate of 1% per month. A late fee of $20 per month will be assessed for each payment that is past due after the 15th of each month. Payments made with credit cards and debit cards will incur a fee of 2.85% per transaction.
In compliance with FERPA, only students are authorized to access their CBU student account. A student may authorize another individual such as a parent or guardian to view Ebills and make payments online through CashNet. If you are a family member/guardian or someone else wanting to pay for a student, make sure the student has logged into his/her CashNet account through BannerWeb and designated you as an Authorized Payer. Once the student has completed this process, you can view the student's bills and make payments by using the username and PIN provided to you by the student.
To get started as a student:
- Go to Banner Web.
- Enter your CBU User ID Number and PIN
- Click on Student Services tab
- Click on Student Accounts
- Click on Student Settle Account/Payment Plan Enrollment
- Check the accuracy of your Charges, Financial Aid, and Balance.
- Click on either the Pay in Full button or the Enroll in Payment Plan button.
• If you are a student making the payment, on the Payment Information screen click Link to CashNet, and then make your payment online using a credit card or electronic check.
• If someone else is making the payment for you, on the Payment Information screen enter an email address and click Send Payment Information. You must still designate this person as an Authorized Payer in CashNet, so click Link to CashNet and then add a new Parent PIN.
- If you are not paying online and wish to participate in a payment plan, you should follow the steps above to enroll in a plan. Then mail your check or pay in person at the business office.
- You will receive an email at your CBU email address once your payment(s) have been processed and you have met your financial requirement to attend class.
- If you have an outstanding balance, you will receive electronic bills via email at your CBU email address. You must continue to make the monthly installment payments outlined in your payment plan.
- Return to the Student Settle Account/Payment Plan Enrollment screen at any time to see your applied payments, payment due dates, installment amounts, and outstanding balance.
To get started as a parent or authorized payer:
