Payment Options

 ASU offers many convenient ways to pay your account balance.

(Visa, Mastercard, or American Express)  

Payments are made through either the Student Appalnet or the Parent Portal.  ASU does not asses credit card convenience fees at the present time.  We do not accept payment over the phone. 

Via the Student Appalnet: Select the Self Service tab; select the Student Tab; select the Student Accounts link; select the Account Detail by Term Link; select the PAY NOW button.

Student Credit Card Payment via AppalNET

Via the Parent Portal: Login with the 9-digit Student Banner ID and your 6-digit pin; select the Student Accounts link; select the Account Detail by Term link; select the PAY NOW button.

 Parent Portal link

* Parent Portal access is granted by the Student on the Parent Access link of the Student Tab on the Appalnet.  If a parent pin needs to be reset (if it is forgotten) or an email address needs to be updated, the student must do this by selecting the same Parent Access link on their Appalnet and entering the new information and submitting.  More information on Parent Access and the FERPA law can be found at this link:

Note:  ASU does NOT store credit card information.  Credit/debit card account information must be entered each time a payment is made.

  • Payments made to Higher One are disbursed weekly to ASU, so please be aware of the delay between your payment to Higher One and it being reflected on the Student Account at ASU.
  • It is the bill payer's responsibility to ensure that the payment plan contract amount is modified as neccessary to cover what is owed on the Student Account per semester.  Bills from ASU will continue to be generated and they should be reviewed for this purpose.  There is no cost to change or cancel your contract amount and this can be done at any time by logging into your Higher One account portal at:
  • Upon completion of the Tuition Payment Plan contract, any balances left owed to ASU should be paid directly to ASU through online Credit/Debit payment or by remitting a check. 

    Accounts must be current in order to register for upcoming semesters - this is extremely important!
