Will paying with a credit card cost me more?
Plastiq assesses a nominal fee for the service. For each transaction, two charges will appear on your credit card statement: 1) the principal amount of the payment, and 2) the fee. The service fee is 2.5% of the principal amount. This rate is subject to change at the discretion of Plastiq. The service fee rate will be published on the Plastiq transaction site.

Why am I being charged a fee?
Plastiq provides their payment platform to simplify the payment process, while providing a convenient and flexible option for students. The fee that is assessed is one that is typically paid by the merchant for accepting credit cards, and covers the costs of processing credit card transactions.

Is the use of Plastiq an unofficial way to increase student fees?
No. The fee that Plastiq assesses covers their cost of processing credit card payments and is totally independent of school fees. The school does not receive any portion of this fee.

If I make a payment online with my credit card through Plastiq, how long does it take for the payment to go through?
Normal credit card processing times apply. Payments are approved instantly, and funding may take from 1-3 business days. Contact a Plastiq payment specialist if you have questions. Go to for more information.

Can I still pay in person?
Yes. We are simply adding a new option that allows you to make payments with a credit card.

What can I pay for through Plastiq?
