New Online Payment Option

Elon now offers a secure online payment option—so you can pay tuition and fees right from your home computer! Just go to and follow the instructions provided in the fall bill that was mailed to your home address. Pre-payment deadline for the fall semester is August 1.

Standard Payment Option

Elon sends students/parents a bill for each semester or term. Bills for the fall semester are sent out in early July with a prepayment deadline in early August. For the spring semester, bills are sent in early December with a prepayment deadline in early January. Students who meet the prepayment deadlines and who have preregistered need not go through the registration sessions held on campus at the beginning of each semester. Any financial aid a student is receiving will be reflected on the bill as a credit against the charges.

Full Service Payment Plan

If you are participating in the Full Service Payment Plan, an optional plan that allows you to spread payments over a 10-month period, one half of the yearly contract may be applied against the fall statement. The other half is used for spring. Any difference that remains after the Full Service Payment Plan contract is applied to the statement must be paid to the university. If there are any questions regarding Full Service Payment Plan, please contact the Bursar’s Office.

Credit Cards

For parents who desire to charge some or all costs (after any aid is subtracted) to a credit card, Elon does accept American Express, Mastercard and Discover.
