The Student Financial Services Office assists families with making payments for tuition, refunding excess financial aid, setting up direct deposit, and answering billing questions. We also offer assistance with third party reimbursements and guaranteed tuition plans.
You have two options to pay your account on EagleNet. Pay by E-check with your bank account and routing number at no charge. You can pay by credit card using a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover. When using debit or credit cards you will be charged a non-refundable 2.95% convenience fee. You can securely store payment information on EagleNet to facilitate future payments.
Students can setup parents and others as authorized users so that they have the ability to make payments on the student's behalf. Please see the instructions at the link below for assistance with setting up an authorized user.
Payments received by EWU consisting of cash, cashier’s checks, bank drafts, traveler’s checks, and money orders that total in excess of $10,000 (in one payment or a series of payments within 12 months) are reported to the IRS/FINCEN in accordance with IRC 6050I. This reporting may require additional information to be collected at the time of payment. Reporting is done on form 8300 filed with the IRS/FINCEN and a letter will be provided to each payor subject to this reporting requirement.
If you would like to mail in a check make it payable to Eastern Washington University and write the student identification number or NetID on the check. The cancelled check will serve as your receipt.

Our office implemented e-bills in Fall 2007. We no longer mail out paper bills. An e-mail will be sent to your EWU e-mail account the week before the quarter starts and on the 15th of the month if you owe a balance. When you receive the e-mail you can log into EagleNet under the Statement and Payments History tab to view and pay your bill online.
Students can access and pay their account online 24 hours a day. You can save a copy of your bill or forward it to your parents or other payers if needed.

Receiving Your Excess Financial Aid
We refund financial aid daily. You can determine if your financial aid has disbursed to your student account by checking your EagleNet account. Financial aid is first applied to the outstanding charges on your student account; any excess credit would be refunded to you. Refunding options include direct deposit or mail out check.
DIRECT DEPOSIT: To sign up for direct deposit complete the Direct Deposit Authorization form. Direct deposit funds are available the first day of the quarter.
MAIL OUT CHECK: A check will be mailed out the first day of the quarter; it takes an average of 3 to 5 days for delivery. Checks can be cashed at any Bank of America branch with a $6.00 fee for non-Bank of America customers.
Non-Financial Aid Refunds: To request a refund for a non-financial aid credit send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org (please include student ID and name), or call us at 509-359-6372. For students that do not have direct deposit set up there is a $15.95 check processing fee.
To sign up for Direct Deposit, you can download a Direct Deposit Authorization form, fill it in and turn it into Student Financial Services with a voided check.
Your account information is verified by a process called pre-noting. The account verification process can take 4-5 days. If a refund is processed while your account is in Pre-note status it will be generated as a check.
Short Term Loans
The Short Term Loan Program is available to all registered EWU students enrolled at least half-time (five credits for master's/doctoral candidates, six credits for all others). Applications are available in our office, EWU Spokane Student Services, or online.
Loan applications can be turned in the day before the quarter begins with a check available for pick up the first day of school after 10am. The Short Term Loan Program will close at the end of the seventh week of each quarter (Fall, Winter, and Spring) or at the end of the fourth week of the eight week session during Summer. The program may close earlier if funds are depleted.
The loan is $400, less a $15 processing fee. The loan must be repaid within 60 days*. Short Term Loans may be repaid at any time before the due date without penalty. We reserve the right to deny loan applications if:
1) You already have an outstanding Short Term Loan;
2) You are currently past due on a Short Term Loan; and/or
3) You have paid a prior Short Term Loan after the due date.
Note: Any outstanding Short Term Loan balance prior to the beginning for Fall Quarter must be paid in full before Fall financial aid will be disbursed.
There is one hold that is placed by the Student Financial Services office for past due accounts.
Balances over $1,000.00 This hold prevents registration activity and the release of a student's transcript.
A hold can be avoided by paying your account balance in full and on time. To have the hold removed simply log into EagleNet and pay the past due balance, the hold will be automatically removed within one a half hour.
If you have a hold that prevents you from making a payment on EagleNet please contact us at (509) 359-6372 for more information.
