Billing and Payment

Important Information Regarding Credit Card Payments

FIT does not accept credit or debit card payments in person, by mail, or by fax. FIT uses a third party company to manage all online payments for tuition, dormitory, and other college-related costs. If you choose to use a credit card for any of these expenses, you must pay the servicer a non-refundable convenience fee of 2.85% for each transaction. There is no charge for online payments using a checking or savings account.

FIT will continue to accept in-person payments in the form cash and checks at no additional cost. 

Tuition Billing

The Office of the Bursar does not send bills by U.S. mail. Your billing invoice is available to view and print through the Student Bill Payment website. When your semester bill is ready to be viewed online an email will be sent to your FIT email address or alternate email or text message. Visit the Student Bill Payment website to set up your alternate email address and opt into text messaging.

Tuition and dormitory payment due dates are determined in advance and may vary from one academic year to the next. The Fall semester's payment is generally due on or about August 1st. The Spring semester's payment is generally due on or about January 2nd. Students who register after the payment due date will be required to make payment in full upon registration.
