Payments & Deadlines
Credit Card Convenience Fees
The cost of processing credit and debit cards keeps going up. It’s now a significant annual expense for universities and Purdue Northwest is no exception. Unfortunately, the university cannot absorb these costs, and keep a PNW education as affordable as we would like. However, we do want to continue the convenience of allowing students to use credit and debit cards as payment options.
