Payment Options

Effective July 1, 2014, Azusa Pacific University will no longer accept credit card payments for any charge appearing on the student account. For more information about this decision, read our Credit Card Policy FAQs (PDF).

Students can choose to pay for their degree in full or they can choose to pay for each course in increments through a scheduled payment plan.

Note: All past balances must be paid in full or secured by verified loans or company reimbursement before a new term can be started. Proof of payment must be provided in order to register.

Payment in Full

Students make full payment of the tuition and fees for the current term before the start of his/her first class. All payments must be made through CASHNet, which students can find in the Billing and Payment area of their university portal account ( Students will be charged each term for the full amount of the term.

Payment with Stafford Loans

If a student is using Stafford Loans to pay for their program, a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be on file. If the FAFSA has not been filed, the student will be required to pay 20 percent down for that term.

Company Reimbursement

Some employers will cover part or all of students' tuition and fees. Check with the human resources department of your company or organization to see if this option is available to you. If so, then follow the steps below to take advantage of this benefit.

If your company requires you to pay APU first or grades to be posted before they will reimburse you or the school, please consider applying for loans or call our office immediately to set up a payment plan.

Scheduled Payment Plans

Students can also opt for a payment plan, which spreads out the cost of each course, making payment amounts more manageable. This means making a down payment of 25 percent of the total charges for tuition, books, and fees on the first night of each term. The remaining balance is then spread out over the next four months.
