Payment and Collection of Tuition


Classes will NOT be automatically cancelled for non-payment. You will be responsible for payment of tuition and fees unless an official withdrawal or drop is completed by the required dates published in the class schedules. Non attendance does NOT constitute an official withdrawal.

Domestic & International Payment Options

You may make a payment of any amount at any time after enrolling in a particular semester.

Walk-In Payment: Payment may be made in person at the Cashier's Office in the McMahon Centennial Complex (MCC) at the One-Stop location between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Telephone Payment: Payment may be made via telephone using a VISA or Mastercard. Please have your credit card ready when calling. Call 580-581-2219 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Mail-In Payment: Make checks payable to Cameron University. Mail the check or money order to Cameron University Cashiering Office, 2800 West Gore Boulevard, Lawton, OK 73505. Include your name and social security number on the check.

International Payment: Cameron University has partnered with peerTransfer to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make international tuition payments. peerTransfer’s mission is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. With peerTransfer, you can pay from any country and any bank. You are also offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. In addition, the posting of the payment into your Cameron University account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard and you will be notified via email when it is deposited into our account.

For further information and instructions, please go to the peerTransfer information page.

Students Receiving Financial Assistance

Students receiving any type of financial assistance must process their financial assistance at the Cashier's Office in the McMahon Centennial Complex (MCC) at the One-Stop location. All debts to the University will be paid in full from your financial assistance before any funds will be refunded to you. A Financial Aid Disbursement schedule is published in the class schedule each semester and published on the Financial Assistance Webpage.

Tuition Statements

Monthly tuition statements are mailed to the address you have on file with the University. If you move, it is your responsibility to report the new address to the University. This does not change the due dates or your responsibility to pay on time. Address changes should be reported to the Transcript Office, 2nd Floor, North Shepler, phone 580-581-2239.

For fall semesters, the mailing schedule is mid September, October, and November. For spring semesters, the mailing schedule is mid February, March and April. For summer, the mailing schedule is mid June and July. 

Interest Charges

Interest charges of 1.5 percent of your unpaid tuition balance is added to your account on the last day of each month. Charges for classes that have not started prior to the date that the interest charges will be applied are deducted from your account balance before the interest is computed.

Late Payment Penalties

A late payment penalty of $50.00 is added to your account if you still have a tuition balance on the last day of the semester.

Financial Holds

If you have an unpaid tuition balance when pre-enrollment for the next semester begins, a financial hold is placed on your account. Enrollment in future semesters while you still have a tuition balance is prohibited.

Collection Procedures

If you still have an unpaid tuition balance at the close of a semester, you will receive a final notice. This final notice gives you approximately 30 days to pay your account in full before it is sent to the Credit Bureau of Lawton for collection.
