ABOUT E-CHECK

Read about E-Check, the payment process that allows you to pay your student bills electronically from your personal checking account.


IMPORTANT

As a UCSD student, you can go to the Billing and Payment tool to make E-Check payments. You can also authorize a parent or other payer to make E-Check payments.

Only your personal checking account will work with E-Check. Please do not attempt to use personal savings, investment, or brokerage accounts, as they will be rejected.


SETUP YOUR PROFILE

You can store your account information as a payment profile so you won't have to re-enter it each time you use E-Check. To create a payment profile:

  • Locate your bank's ABA routing number and your checking account number at the bottom of your checks.
  • Create your account profile while you're making a payment, or by using E-Check Payment Tools.

PAY YOUR BILL

With E-Check, you can choose to pay either of these amounts:

  • Last statement amount, the amount shown on your last billing statement
  • Current balance, an updated account balance that includes your last statement amount and any adjustments since the last billing date.

You can pay for specific charges or different amounts at the Cashier's Office.


E-CHECK FEES

  • $0.50 service fee for each transaction, added to the payment amount deducted from your checking account.
  • $2 fee for transactions returned due to an invalid account number.
  • $35 returned check fee for transactions returned due to insufficient funds.

SECURITY

E-Check uses the latest security technologies, including Secure Sockets Layer software, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and database level encryption technology. Information is stored on secure computers located in a biometrically locked data center.
