** Three options are available for payment of tuition and fees. To assist with payment, ECU honors VISA , MASTERCARD and DISCOVER for tuition, room, and board.
OPTION 1: Pay tuition and fees in full by MAIL, IN-PERSON, or ONLINE on your MyECU website by 4:30 p.m., on or before the established deadline date.
OPTION 2: If tuition and fees are paid by an agency or scholarship, the student must present agency voucher or scholarship authorization to the Bursar Office by the established deadline.
OPTION 3: Partial payments may be accepted in the Bursar Office (108 Administration).
However, tuition must be paid in full by the established deadline.
All accounts not paid by the established deadline will be placed on "HOLD." A student will not be allowed to enroll in future semesters, nor receive transcripts until their student account is paid in full.
PLEASE NOTE: If you find that after having enrolled that you will not be attending classes, you must cancel your enrollment in writing immediately. Request for cancellation should be processed in person or mailed to ECU Office of Admissions and Records. The request may also be FAXED to (580) 559-5432 or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. ECU will not cancel an enrollment due to non-payment. Failure to withdraw from classes will result in money owed to the University for tuition and fees, even though not attending.
