Visa Credit Cannot Be Used for Tuition, Fees

By Connect2Mason Director Christian Smith

Starting Aug. 31, the University will no longer accept Visa credit cards for payment of tuition and fees. Visas will still be accepted at other locations such as the bookstore and dining facilities.

The change will be made because Mason was spending approximately $1.5 million per year on credit card fees.

Residential students were informed of the change through notices placed in their mailboxes. Students without on-campus mailboxes have not received an official announcement of the change but, says University Press Secretary Dan Walsch, “we will be getting the word [out]…students will be informed.”
