Electronic Payments

Electronic payments are preferred because they post to your student account immediately.

We accept checking/savings account (ACH) transfer payments. (Unsuccessful ACH transfers are subject to a $25.00 fee.)

There is no charge for electronic payments from your checking or savings account. Credit card payments are not accepted.

  • Students can make online check payments in the “pay/view online” area of the billing section of HomerConnect. For check payments, you will need your bank account information including the account number and routing number located on the bottom of your check.
  • Parents can make online check payments through QuikPay. To do so, the student must first add you as an Authorized Payer in HomerConnect by choosing view/pay in the billing section of HomerConnect.

Cash and Check Payments

Cash and check payments also are accepted, but not processed as quickly as online payments.

Payments can be made in person at the service windows in our office or mailed to:
Office of Student Financial Services

953 Danby Rd
Ithaca, NY 14850-7000

Checks should be made out to Ithaca College and include the student’s ID number.

Payment Plan

Ithaca College participates in a tuition payment plan administered by Nelnet.

This plan may be used to cover the tuition, room and meal plan balances after all financial aid, loans and scholarships. There is a $25.00 enrollment fee per term.

  • Students initiate the plan through their Homerconnect account.
  • If you have questions, contact us at 800-429-4275
