Student Account Center - Online Bill Pay

Pay Tuition and Fees Online

Rockhurst students can pay their tuition and fees online through the Student Account Center (SAC) in partnership with Tuition Management Systems (TMS).  This service is available to current students with a valid Rockhurst account.  Rockhurst will generally no longer be mailing paper bills or statements. All information is available online through our TMS Student Account Center located at https://my.rockhurst.edu.

View Up to the minute activity

The TMS-Student Account Center is linked directly to the University system to display all charges and payments immediately. A summary page is displayed after login that shows the current balance due, pending aid total, and payment plan total.

To view detail of the totals, select the “Account Activity” button. Once on that screen, we recommend that you select the “All Dates” option for viewing the activity. This will show detail of all semesters.

To view detail of pending aid, select the dollar amount displayed under the Pending Aid column on the Summary page. This will show aid that is expected or tentative. Expected aid is included in the calculation for current balance. Tentative aid is not included in the balance. Please contact Financial Aid immediately for tentative aid as you have to complete the process.

Make one-time payments towards the balance owed using EFT from checking/savings or the credit card type of your choice.


Enroll in a Payment Plan

You can set up a 5 month payment plan through TMS to divide the semester account balance into equal payments. Payment plans are set up per semester NOT per year. If you have a payment plan in the fall and want one for the spring, you must enroll in a new plan. There is a $75 fee incurred when enrolling. Your plan is active when the enrollment fee is paid.


Tuition Protection Plan

Rockhurst University has proudly partnered with GradGuard™ to offer Tuition Insurance from Allianz Global Assistance.  The Tuition Protection plan is like an extension of our refund policy. It can reimburse up to 100% of your nonrefundable school costs after a midsemester withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, psychological condition, and more—protecting your investment in higher education.

To get a quote or learn more about the Tuition Protection Plan, call 1.866.724.4384 or go to: www.Gradguard.com/tuition/rockhurst

Tuition insurance plans also come with Student Life Assistance: a 24-hour hotline to help students stay safe on and off campus.  At Rockhurst University, we want our families to have peace of mind during their entire time with us.

Insurance must be purchased prior to first day of classes. Coverage extends through the end of that semester.

Tuition insurance is completely optional. The agreement you enter into is with GradGuard, not with Rockhurst University.
