Payment methods

Direct debit

Don't want to miss payment deadlines? The easiest way to pay tuition fees and university accommodation fees is by direct debit where your payment will automatically be debited from your account on the due date or the next available working day. We will notify you via your University email address of amounts and dates at least 10 days before the collection so there won't be any unexpected payments taken from your account. There is no extra charge for direct debit payments but you will need to have a UK bank account.

Setting up a direct debit

The quickest way to set up a direct debit for your tuition fees and accommodation is by logging in to your e:Vision account. Go to the 'Your finance' tab, click on the 'Direct Debit' tab and find the 'Direct debit mandate' button at the bottom of the page to set up and manage your direct debits.

If you don't want to set your direct debit up online - or if you are a paying on behalf of a student - you can complete the paper direct debit mandate form and return it to the Fees Office, Market Square.

If you want your tuition fees and accommodation fees to be paid from different bank accounts, complete a paper direct debit mandate for the second account and return it to the Fees Office.

Direct debit mandate deadline

You need to submit your completed direct debit mandate form online or to the Fees Office by Saturday 30 September 2017 in order for it to be processed before your first payment is due.

Managing your direct debit

You can update your bank details or cancel your direct debit using e:VisionGo to 'Your finance' section and find the 'Direct debit mandate' button at the bottom of the page in the 'Direct debit' tab.

You can also cancel your direct debit by visiting the Fees Office or by instructing your bank and advising the Fees Office that this has been done.

Online

To make one-off payments to the University, you should use e:Vision or the Online Payments Service.

This is the cheapest way to make one-off payments by credit card as online payments do not incur surcharges.

In person

You can pay in person at the Cash Office in Market Square, open 10.00am - 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Paying by card

Credit card payments made in personincur an added 1.71% surcharge but you can avoid this if you pay by credit card online.

Unfortunately, there is an added 1.71% surcharge if you pay with an overseas debit card. If you're an international student, you may need to arrange authorisation with your card company when making a payment to the University in order to avoid your card company declining the payment.

All payments made by UK debit card do not incur a surcharge.

Paying by cheque and bank draft

Cheques should be in British pounds and made payable to 'University of York'.

Please make sure you write your student number and family name on the back of the cheque and include a paying-in slip or covering letter stating what the payment is for.

You should ensure that you have enough money in your bank to cover the cheque. If this is not the case then your bank may refuse to honour the cheque (the University will not receive any money) and the bank may charge you. In addition, the University will charge you administration costs.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept Travellers Cheques.

Paying by bank transfer

You can pay by bank transfer but your bank may charge for this service. You should include your student number and your family name in the reference information.

When arranging a bank transfer, you need to make sure there is enough time for the payment to reach the University before the due date. Check with your bank how long the payment should take.

Please note that you are liable to pay any charges levied by the banks and for any losses that may be incurred due to fluctuations in exchange rates.
