Payment Options

 ASU offers many convenient ways to pay your account balance.

(Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express)  

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

Via the Parent Portal: Login with the 9-digit Student Banner ID and your 6-digit pin; select the Student Accounts link; select the Review Account; select a Term; 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:
