Tuition Online Payment
Complete student account information is available on a secure online site, including current billing and monthly statements. Taylor University has contracted with an outside company (TouchNet) to provide this service. Payments can be made online by e-check or credit card (Discover, MasterCard, Visa, or American Express). There is no cost to pay by e-check, but credit cards incur a convenience fee. The secure TouchNet student account site can be reached by students through the University portal – myTAYLOR. Students can authorize additional TouchNet users – allowing the authorized user to view statements and to make payments. To authorize an additional user, students must:
- Access the Bursar Office Billing Statements under Quick Links on myTAYLOR.
- Choose the authorize user tab and enter the correct e-mail address for the parent or other authorized user.
The newly authorized user will then receive an e-mail notice with the link and password for the TouchNet site. The username is the authorized user’s e-mail address as entered by the student.
The Bursar Office is responsible for ensuring that student accounts are accurate and paid in a timely manner. Due to federal regulations and the desire of Taylor to assist each student in his or her personal growth, all Bursar’s Office correspondence is sent directly to the student. It is the student’s responsibility to work out payment issues with his or her parents or guardians. Students can authorize an additional parent/guardian to receive e-billing by authorizing this access through myTAYLOR.
Federal Work Study
Federal work study earnings are paid directly to the student through payroll. It is generally recommended that students use their earnings for their miscellaneous and personal expenses and not for tuition payment due each semester. If a student wishes to apply work study earning to a student account, the student may contact the Bursar to enroll in the student payment plan.
There are approximately 900 students employed on campus each year. Hiring begins in the spring for the following fall. This means there are fewer positions posted in the fall; so, it is critical for students to begin their job search immediately. Students eligible for federal work study are given first priority for employment.
Student Health Service Fee
The $72 Health Service Fee is mandatory for full-time students. It cannot be waived unless a student is married, commuting from his or her parents’ home, or living outside the Upland area for student teaching. Eligible students can request that the Health Service Fee be waived by contacting the Bursar’s Office. Taylor University does not offer student health insurance.
It is the goal of the Financial Aid Office to help you and your student understand the financial aid process and how it is tied to government and to University guidelines. All routine communications from the financial aid office, including additional information, documentation requests and award letters, are sent to the student’s campus email and the parent e-mail address on file. If the parent does not have an active e-mail account, the student should forward the information to the parent. Student financial aid information, including requested documentation and award information is available online 24/7. Paper copies, however, are not sent via mail. Parents must access My Financial Aid (MYFA) online to view their student’s award package. Students can access MYFA through the Taylor Portal – myTAYLOR – by clicking on the Financial Aid icon in the upper right hand corner.
- Visit MYFA.
- Enter Taylor University Student ID number (include the @ sign).
- Enter the Pin (first eight digits of the student’s Social Security Number).
