University No Longer Accepting Credit Cards for Tuition Payments

By Monica Vachon

Beginning July 1, 2014, the University of Massachusetts Lowell will no longer directly be accepting credit cards for payment of student tuition, fees, room and board (if applicable).

The University does have a number of payment options available to students and their families. Payments can be made by eChecks, check by mail, money order, bank check, international wire transfer, and monthly payment plan.

The University has secured the services of TMS (Tuition Management Systems) to process all credit/debit card transactions. TMS accepts MasterCard, VISA, Discover or American Express. There will be a 2.5 percent non-refundable convenience fee assessed to each credit card/debit card transaction.
