How to Pay

Cash, check, eCheck, and wire transfer are acceptable forms of payment.

Overpayment Refunds:

Payments in excess of the amount due the University may be rejected and returned to the payer. Students are responsible for accurate and timely payments. Any overpayment amounts accepted by the University may be refunded at the end of the term with the student's written request. A $50 processing fee will be deducted from the amount of the refund.


If paying by paper check, please be sure to include the student's full name and University issued ID number on the face of the check. Checks should be made payable to: Pepperdine University. Checks must be drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. dollars.

Paper checks may be dropped off in person at the Office of Student Accounts, or the Cashier's Office. The Cashier's Office is located on the second floor of the Thornton Administrative Center on our Malibu campus.

Or mail your check to:

Pepperdine University
Office of Student Accounts

eCheck payments may be made through WaveNet. You will need the routing number and account number of your checking or savings account.

Wire Transfers

International Wire Transfers

The most efficient means for an international student to pay their student account balance is through Western Union's bank-to-bank transfer. This option allows you to lock in an exchange rate quote in your currency of choice (List of foreign currencies offered by Western Union) and provides a simple and secure way of initiating an international wire transfer.

Domestic Wire Transfers:

If paying by wire transfer, please contact the Student Accounts Office at (310) 506-4981 or e-mail

Penalties on Late Payments and Unpaid Balances

Students are responsible for viewing their student accounts online, for noting their account balances due, and for making the appropriate arrangements for payment to be made by the due date. Finance charges will accrue daily on any past due balances at the rate of 0.027%.

Company Reimbursement

Request a company reimbursement form from Student Accounts. Employer MUST fill out and the original form returned before the term starts. If you need an invoice, you will need to request one in writing (Pepperdine e-mail account is acceptable) Remember, you are still responsible for the payment to be in our office and posted before the due date.
