Can payments be accepted over the phone?
We do not accept payments over the phone. Please pay online through our website or the student portal, or mail a check to our business office (see instructions below).
Where should I mail my payment or scholarship check(s)?
Please include your student ID on the memo line of the check. Please submit payments to:
PO Box 338
Due West, SC 29639
How do I view my bill?
You can view your bill in your student portal. On the left-hand column, select “View Active Statement.” To pay, select “Pay Active Statement.”
When does my bill need to be paid?
Your bill must be paid in full, or you must be in a payment plan before moving in each semester. Balances not paid by the due date are considered past due. Any student account with a past-due balance will be placed on hold until the balance is paid. A business office hold will prevent students from registering for classes, requesting a transcript, or receiving a diploma.
Why do I have a business hold on my student account?
It is the responsibility of the student to monitor their account throughout the semester. Student account balances change due to changes in your schedule or your financial aid; these changes may result in additional tuition charges, fees, and/or overload charges. Other departments may also post fees and fines to your account, such as residence life. Balances not paid in full or in a payment plan by the first day of classes will be eligible for a hold. Any student account with a past-due balance will be placed on hold until the balance is paid. A business hold will prevent students from registering for classes, requesting a transcript, or receiving a diploma.
Why was my parent or spouse not able to receive information about my account balance?
Due to FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) regulations, we are not allowed to discuss your student account with anyone other than the student, unless you have given permission to Erskine to provide academic, financial, or disciplinary information to an Authorized User. The student can designate an Authorized User(s) within their student portal under “My Privacy.”
What if I can’t pay my payment plan on time?
Transact charges a monthly penalty for late payments. Any account balance not paid by the due date will be subject to a $17 late fee. If you miss multiple payments, you may be subject to removal from the payment plan and the remaining balance will be due in full.
When will I receive my refund check?
Refunds are available after Erskine receives all federal, state, local, and private funds; this may vary from student to student. The finance division will contact you through your Erskine email when your refund is available to pick up. If you have questions, please call Erskine Central at (864) 379-6545.
