Grand View will be partners with Official Payments to offer a secure, convenient and interest-free way to automatically withdraw payments from your banking account or credit card over the course of the semester.  The GV Payment Plan option allows students to divide the total amount due from the billing statement into three, four, five or six installments per semester.  Access to those payment plans is available through Official Payments using the link above.  Depending on the plan selected, an enrollment fee of $30 to $50 will be assessed.  This fee allows for the deferment of tuition throughout the semester and waives late fees on the outstanding balance as long as the account remains in good standing. 

ALL BALANCES REMAINING UNPAID as of the due date WILL BE ASSESSED A 1.5% LATE PAYMENT FEE PER MONTH. Further registration will not be allowed and transcripts will be withheld until balance is paid in full.

Payment Due Dates
Tuition payment is due the Friday before classes begin each specific term.  For those students enrolled in accelerated coursework, all payments are due the Friday before the course begins.

The tuition account is the responsibility of the student. If the student has a credit balance, the refund is provided to the student, not the person who paid the account. A credit balance that occurs because of an overage of a Federal Parent Plus loan will be refunded according to the parent’s instructions.

Direct Deposit of Student Account Refunds (E-Refunds)
Grand View University is pleased to offer direct deposit of student account refunds.  This new service will allow students to receive semester tuition account refunds more quickly.  Additionally, students will have the added convenience of email notification when funds are transferred out, and direct deposit allows for immediate access to funds (according to each banks’ policies).  This new service is now Grand View University's preferred method of delivery. Students who do not choose direct deposit will have their refund checks mailed to the address on record at the university.  There will be no pick up of refund checks in person.Students may enter their bank account information at myView> myTools > Financial Information > Bank Information.  Please note a login is required to access myView.
