Students, faculty, and staff should view their EKU account regularly by logging into their myEKU account and clicking on “Billing Statement”. A monthly billing notification is currently emailed to all individuals with a balance due to the university to that individual’s official EKU email account. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the student of obligation to pay by the due date. A late fee of 10% of the account balance up to $25 per month will be assessed on all past due accounts.
If a student, faculty, or staff fails to pay in full or make acceptable payment arrangements with the Student Accounting Services Office within 90 days of the original due date, they may be subject to additional fees including collection costs, legal fees, and any other expenses incurred by the university in collection of, or attempting to collect the obligation.
Payments can be made online by electronic check for free or by card with a processing fee.
Domestic card payments will process with a 2.85% service fee
International card payments will process with a 4.25% service fee
The minimum service fee for card transactions between $20 – $106 will be $3.00
