Your Payment Options

  • Electronic check
    Set up electronic checking using the account number and routing number for the personal checking or savings account you would like to use. (Sorry, we cannot accept corporate accounts.) Once this payment method is saved, future payments are quick and easy.
  • Credit card
    We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. Please note: PayPath charges a 2.95% convenience fee. We recommend you avoid this fee by using electronic checking, if possible. Refer to our FAQ’s if you have questions regarding this convenience fee.
  • Pay With Your Smart Phone
    You can log into MyPNW on your smartphone to make a payment, review your account information, set up payment and refund account profiles, and more.

**Policy Regarding Overpayments:

Purdue Northwest cannot accept a wire transfer in excess of the amount due on the student account. If a transfer is received that is in excess of the account balance, the excess amount may be returned to the sender. Families wanting to provide their student with funds for living expenses should transfer funds directly to their student’s bank account.

We have friendly staff eager to help you at either location:

  • Hammond Campus: Lawshe Hall, Room 130
  • Westville Campus: Schwarz Hall, Room 127

We do not accept credit cards in the office, though. Please bring a personal check, cashier’s check, money order or cash. Outside of regular business hours, you may use the drop box at either campus. In Westville, the drop box is located right outside the office entrance. In Hammond, the drop box is located on the outside of the building.

When paying by mail, please do not send cash. You can mail a personal check, cashier’s check, or money order made payable to Purdue University Northwest. Be sure to include your PUID number and student name on the check. Please allow seven days for the mail.

Be Aware of Your Financial Obligations and Responsibilities

Students should make every effort to keep their credit good in the community for their own benefit and that of all students.

A student’s failure to pay the University amounts owed by established due dates may result in the imposition of holds preventing access to student services such as registration, delivery of transcripts or diplomas. In collection of any indebtedness owed the University, the University shall also be entitled to all additional costs referenced in Indiana Code 21-14-2-11, as from time to time amended or recodified.

Expenses associated with collection of indebtedness by means of the Indiana state tax off set program shall be added to the indebtedness. Expenses associated with collection of indebtedness by means of a collection agency shall be added to the indebtedness. Any judgment entered shall be without relief from valuation and appraisement laws.

As to all disputes or collections relating to indebtedness owed the University, student consents to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in any competent court within the Indiana county in which the University campus enrolling the student is located, except as pre-empted by or prohibited by 15 USC 1692i, as hereinafter amended from time to time, other federal statutes, or state laws and regulations, including consumer protection laws but excluding general preferred venue rules and laws. All returned checks, drafts, or orders are subject to a service charge not exceeding the maximum allowed by Indiana law.

Students with past due financial obligations to the University may have their official university records placed on hold, including placement of a hold on registration eligibility for any future academic terms.

Degree candidates with delinquent financial obligations to the University must pay or satisfy such debts at least one week before the close of any term. If any such debts have not been paid or satisfied upon terms acceptable to the University before the close of any term, a candidate’s diploma may be withheld from graduation ceremonies, or if the degree is granted without knowledge of such delinquency, the diploma and transcript will be held until the financial obligation has been satisfied.
