Notice of debit/credit card payment changes
July 3, 2018
Effective July 10, 2018, a 2.75% ($3 minimum) nonrefundable service fee will be assessed on each debit/credit card transaction made through MyAccountManager.
Pima is committed to providing students and their families a range of options for paying educational expenses. For many years, we have accepted debit and credit card payments and paid the processing charges imposed by the credit card companies. As the use of these cards and the transaction fees have increased, the processing charges have become a significant expense and, as a public institution, we believe it is in the best interest of our students and Pima County to use educational dollars in the most efficient way.
Effective July 10, 2018, a 2.75% ($3 minimum) nonrefundable service fee will be assessed on each debit/credit card transaction made through MyAccountManager. The fee is being charged by our third-party processor, PayPath. This arrangement enables the College to continue to provide students with a debit/credit card payment option while reducing the overall cost of payment processing. The service fee ensures the cost of using debit and credit cards is carried only by the students using them rather than being shared by all students.
The College will continue to accept the following payment methods that do not incur a service fee:
- E-Check (ACH)
- Paper Check
- Money Order
- Cashier's Check
