PAWS - Online Payment/Billing

Students can use PAWS to pay their bills online. The following is a tutorial for how to pay online using PAWS.

Pop-ups must be enabled/allowed.

PAWS charges may be paid online through your PAWS account. Electronic checks (eCheck), VISA, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards are accepted on PAWS.

Each PAWS online Credit Card transaction will be assessed a 2.85% non-refundable convenience fee. The convenience fee will not appear on your PAWS account but will appear on your credit card statement.

No convenience fees are charged for ACH (Electronic Check) Payments, mailed payments, or in-person check payments made in the Office of Student Accounts.

How to Make a Payment Using PAWS

    1. Log into PAWS.
    2. Click on the Make a Payment link below the Account Summary in your PAWS Student Center.
    3. Log into the NelNet QuickPay site, previously called TouchNet. Click the View & Pay Accounts navigation link.

    How To View PAWS Online Billing Statement

    Students will now be able to view an online billing statement on their PAWS account by clicking on the "View Billing Statement" link located on the Student Center page under the Finances section and then clicking the "Get Billing Statement" button.

    When they click on the Get Billing Statement button, the statement that displays will be in PDF format so the student can view it, print it, or save it as a file on their computer. This online statement has been tested on PCs, Macs, and Linux (all with Adobe Acrobat of 7 or higher). It also works with the most up-to-date versions of our supported browsers.

    Allowing others to access your PAWS account for payment

    PAWS allows you to designate access to special accounts that are limited to: To Do Lists, Making a Payment, and View Grades. To do so, select "Grant Access to Others" in the Personal Information section near the bottom of the page.
    The user accounts the student creates for the designated account(s) are limited to the username of ePantherID_D1, ePantherID_D2, or ePantherID_D3. An example of one is JOHNDOE_D3. After you create the account, make sure to choose 'Give access' to Financial Make a Payment. The account you created for designated access will login at PAWS Login(make sure to select the gray Parents,Designates, and Guests button) with the password you chose and username provided.
