Student Accounts accepts payments online, by mail, in person, and via phone. We also accept payments through employer reimbursement and direct billing programs.
Students and authorized payers can make payments online via FisherPay, using a credit card, and/or electronic check from a checking/savings account.
Using a Checking or Savings Account
Secure online payments that automatically debit a checking or savings account can be made in FisherPay. Payments can be made only from bank accounts in the United States.
Each time an online payment is made by the student or an authorized payer, an email with a confirmation number will be sent. Payments are posted to the student's account at the time of transaction.
For more details about how to pay online using a checking or savings account, please view our FisherPay Guide.

St. John Fisher College has an affiliation with NelNet Business Solutions. NelNet offers easy online enrollment for interest-free payment plans, which allow families to finance their balance over the course of the semester.
Students/families who choose to establish a payment plan must enroll online and set up automatic payment deductions from a checking account, savings account, MasterCard, Discover Card, or American Express Card. There is a $40 enrollment fee per semester to enroll in the plan. A convenience fee of 2.7% will be charged if you choose to pay via credit/debit card. A down payment is also required on the date of enrollment.
The Spring Payment Plan enrollment option opens on December 1.

Payment/Reimbursement from Employer
If your employer will pay your tuition charges upon completion of the semester, you may use the Payment/Reimbursement from Employer Plan (PREP) form to defer your balance. A completed PREP form must be submitted to Student Accounts by the due date on your bill to avoid a late fee. The PREP form is available in our office and in our Forms & Documents section. Note: Only the portion of your bill that your employer agrees to pay will be deferred. All other amounts should be paid by the due date on your bill.
Direct Billing to Your Employer
You may defer your balance if your employer will pay the College in full upon receipt of a bill. You must provide Student Accounts with a letter from your employer stating your name, the semester, the dollar amount they will pay, and where the bill should be sent. The letter should be submitted to Student Accounts by the due date on your bill in order to avoid a late fee.
Non-U.S. Banks and Currency
The preferred method of payment from outside the United States is to wire transfer funds to St. John Fisher College. St. John Fisher College will only accept wire transfer payments for actual charges billed on a student's account. Any overpayment and/or refund of a wire transfer payment will be wired back to the originating account.
Please contact Student Accounts for additional information.
