ePayment Center for Authorized (non-student) Users

Students may grant access to individuals (parents, grandparents, etc.) that need to view account information, make payments, access 1098-T forms, or receive bill notifications. Students can do this by logging in to the ePayment center and clicking on the "Parent or Authorized User PINs" section on the lower left side of the home page. 

Authorized users will receive a secure login (PIN and password) which they can use to access the student's ePayment center. Students must reset the password for an authorized user if they become locked out of the account. 

Information for Federal Work-Study Students:

Students may authorize the University of the Incarnate Word to deposit work-study checks into their student account to pay toward tuition and fees. Students must complete the Work-Study Check Deposit Authorization Form every semester for this option.

Students may cancel their work-study direct deposit at any time by completing a cancellation form with the Business Office.
