Receipts are available upon request. Please include your student number on your check or money order. Cash payments must be made in person. Please do not mail cash!

Credit card payments can be made online through My Mercer by accessing the Manage My Account box. We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and  Discover.  All online credit card payments will be assessed a 2.75% convenience fee for each transaction. E-check payments can be made through My Mercer for free. Please be advised that the cashiers are unable to process credit cards payments. 

If you are unable to pay for your charges in full by the payment deadline, or if your employer will pay for your tuition, the following options may be of interest to you:

Monthly Payment Plan

This program is designed for students who wish to pay their balance on a monthly basis, rather than all at once.

For a $40 or $50 per semester enrollment fee (depending on the plan you select), you can participate in the monthly payment plan.  This plan allows you to pay for your fees in equal installments throughout the semester.  Payments are automatically drafted from your checking or savings account or from a credit card that you choose.  (Please note that credit cards will be assessed a 2.75% convenience fee)

To enroll in this plan, simply log in to your My Mercer account.  Select the Manage My Account link, and choose "Set Up a Payment Plan."


Employer Tuition Assistance Payment Plan (formerly Deferred Payment Plan)

This payment plan is designed for students who are participating in a company reimbursement program with their employers.  If your employer requires the completion of your courses and presentation of a grade before reimbursing you for your tuition, you may be interested in this option.  

For a $50 per semester enrollment fee, you can participate in our Employer Tuition Assistance Payment Plan. This plan requires proof of eligibility from your employer that you will be reimbursed for your tuition, and a down payment of $175 per semester if your employer reimburses 100% of all tuition and fees.  Any portion of your bill that is not covered by your employer is due along with your down payment.  The balance of your tuition will be due thirty days after the last day of class for the semester. Please note that the Health Insurance Premium cannot be included in the Employer Tuition Assistance Payment Plan.

To enroll in the Employer Tuition Assistance Payment Plan, download and complete the enrollment application form and return it to the Bursar's Office along with your $50 enrollment fee, your $175 down payment (if you are reimbursed 100%), your Health Insurance Premium (if not waived through CORE), and proof of eligibility.  The enrollment form, proof of eligibility, and your payment should be received by the first day of class for the semester.

International Payments

Third Party Billing

The Atlanta Bursar's Office will be happy to bill your employer for your tuition if you provide a billing authorization letter or form.  This authorization must state that your employer will pay your tuition directly to the University upon receipt of our invoice. This is not the same as company reimbursement.  Billing authorization forms should be turned in by the payment deadline each semester. Please note that the Health Insurance Premium must be paid at the time your voucher is submitted. (unless the premium is waived through CORE)
