The University's student account billing is done electronically with our new ONLINE BILLING SYSTEM. Students and parents can now view their student account statements and daily student account activity online. St. Bonaventure University’s e-billing system offers students and their families a safe means of receiving electronic billing statements and a secure method of making Web-based payments. We are pleased to offer Electronic Check (ACH) payments for tuition, room and meal plans, fees, and incidental expenses. There will be no service fee if processed through our new Web-based system. Credit cards are accepted online only with our partner CASHNET SmartPay. They accept MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and VISA.
Students enjoy having 24/7 access to student account statements. To view current account activity and statements, students should log onto http://my.sbu.edu, select Student menu and click on View/Pay Student Account.
Students are encouraged to register parents as authorized users, which gives them access to the system and e-mail notification when a new bill is available. If the student needs to set up an authorized user, the student logs onto http://my.sbu.edu, clicks on View/Pay Student Account, and then selects Add Authorized User. After setting up an authorized user, the student will need to give them their login and password. Once the authorized user has access, he or she logs in through the https://commerce.cashnet.com/sbupay site. There, they will be prompted to reset their password.

Frequently Asked Questions about e-billing and online payments.
How does e-billing work?
When a new e-bill is available for viewing, students will receive an e-mail to their St. Bonaventure University e-mail account. Authorized Users (i.e. mom, dad or another third-party) who have been set up by the student to receive a notification will also receive an e-mail.
To access their bill, students will be linked to http://my.sbu.edu, where the student’s login and password will be used for authentication. Authorized Users will be linked directly to the e-bill site to log in and view the e-bill. Authorized Users will receive their login information from their student once the student has set them up on the system. The system will prompt the Authorized User to reset his or her password, keeping the account separate and secure from the student's.
The e-billing home page is designed to provide a general overview of the student account. Included on the home screen is a link to the student’s current account activity, summary information concerning the most recent bill, recent payments, and financial aid.
Authorized Users will need to have Acrobat Reader loaded on their computer. It can be downloaded for free from Adobe at www.adobe.com/products/reader/.
Payments can be made the following ways:
By check: Mail checks payable to St. Bonaventure University, Business Office, P.O. Box 2448, St. Bonaventure, NY 14778. Please indicate the student’s I.D. number on memo line of the check.
By e-check: Once on the e-billing home page, click on Make a Payment and follow the instructions. There is no convenience fee for this service. Make sure that you follow the instructions very carefully and properly input your bank’s routing number and your account number. Returned electronic checks are treated the same as any dishonored item and you will be charged a $35 fee if your check is returned.
By credit card online: Click on “Make a Payment” and follow the instructions. MasterCard, Discover, American Express and VISA are accepted. .
