Payment Methods

The University accepts the following forms of payment (in addition to financial aid and loans): Checks or money order drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. dollars, cash (U.S. currency), cashier's check, and wire payments.

Please note that Pepperdine University does not accept credit cards or debit cards for payment of tuition and fees.

Online Payment

To pay by eCheck, select the "Make A Payment Online" link on the Finances page in WaveNet. A new browser tab will open, click the "Student Account Payment" link and follow the prompts; a receipt will be emailed after your transaction, and the eCheck payment will be posted to your account immediately. You will need the routing number and the account number of your checking or savings account (only use a U.S.-based bank), and the primary account holder's name. (Do not enter debit or credit card numbers as the payment will not go through and will result in a returned check. See "Related Disclosures" below for the implications of a returned check.) There is no fee for an eCheck payment.

Wire Payment

International Wire Transfer

The most efficient means for an international student to pay their student account balance is through Flywire. This option allows students to send payments from another country in the local currency. It is accessed through the "Make A Payment Online" link on the Finances page in WaveNet. Please find instructions on how to make an international wire payment with Flywire here. (For a list of currencies offered by Flywire, click here.) Follow the instructions to send the money to Flywire; once the payment is received, Flywire will process it and send it to Pepperdine. After Pepperdine receives the payment, it will be posted to the student account.

Domestic Wire Transfer

If paying by domestic wire transfer, please contact the Student Accounts Office at 310.568.2307 or from your Pepperdine email for the information necessary to make a domestic wire payment.

Campus (Monday to Thursday - please call or email us first) or at the Cashier's Office located on the 2nd Floor of the Thornton Administrative Center at the Malibu Campus (8 AM to 3 PM and Drop Box after 3 PM).
