Please Note: UMass Boston does not charge a fee and does not share in any convenience fees assessed by the vendor. Although UMass Boston will facilitate your use of the Higher One® CASHNet SMARTPAY Services, if you choose to use your debit card or credit card, please remember that this is a transaction between you and Higher One® CASHNet. If you have questions about your Higher One® CASHNet transactions, contact the Higher One® Hotline at 1.800.239.4211.
Credit Card Payments
Credit card payments can be processed through the Higher One® CASHNet SMARTPAY Services (MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or American Express cards are accepted). If you choose this option, you can login to the WISER self-services account then go to "Student Financial Center" and select "Credit Card/Electronic Check" payment link. You will be taken to a secure site operated by Higher One, Inc. dba CASHNet to process your payment.
When you use this CASHNet SMARTPAY service to make a payment, CASHNet will add a non-refundable convenience fee as a "Service Charge". You will be informed the amount of the non-refundable service charge prior to the completion of your transaction. Service Charges are paid to CASHNet.
Important: The non-refundable convenience fee will also apply to debit card payments processed through Higher One® CASHNet.
E-check Payments - Automated Clearing House (ACH) Transactions
Tuition and fees can be paid online by e-check from your checking or savings account through Higher One® CASHNet SMARTPAY Services. This type of payment results in an electronic debit of your bank account. Bank information like routing number, account number and account holder name are required to complete an ACH payment. If you choose this option, you can login to the WISER self-services account then go to "Student Financial Center" and select "Credit Card/Electronic Check" payment link. You will be taken to a secure site operated by Higher One, Inc. dba CASHNet to process your payment. ACH payments are not subject to the convenience fee.
*Before making an Automated Clearing House transaction (ACH payment), please verify your account information and that your bank allows electronic debiting of your account. Online payments made with incorrect bank routing number or bank account number will not be recognized by your financial institution, and the payment will "bounce" within one to five business days. Return fee will be applied to the student's account if ACH payment is returned by the bank, and you may be unable to process future ACH payments through WISER.
Important: Payment made online cannot be cancelled or stopped once they are submitted. All payments are subject to verification which will take more than 24 hours and could delay the removal of the Administrative Hold. Please arrange your online payment accordingly. Call the Bursar's Office with questions.
Online Debit / Credit Card Refunds
If the refund of a credit balance on your student account is the result of your last method of payment via a debit/credit card, the portion paid by debit/credit card would be credited back first unless the online payment was made more than 120 days ago.
