Student Financial Services (SFS) Counselors

SFS Counselors are your first point of contact for any financial related questions, as they are ready and willing to assist you. SFS Counselors are available via email, phone or virtual appointments. They can assist you with all questions from your FAFSA, aid awards, paying your bill, payment plans, refunds and Panther One Cards, book vouchers and other student financial account questions.

At the Student Payment Center, you can:

  • View and pay your bills.
  • View all account activity.
  • Enroll in an automatic payment plan (DU student login required) for current semester only.
    • To enroll in an automatic payment plan for a specific semester, you must agree to pay a $60.00 non-refundable set-up fee. Payment plans are not available to students with a previous balance due of more than $999.00. 
  • Set up authorized user(s), payment profile(s), and text notifications.

Davenport University Accepts

  • Major credit / debit cards*
  • Cashier's checks
  • Traveler's checks

*All credit / debit card payments will be assessed a convenience fee ($3.00 minimum). To avoid paying this fee, students can make their tuition payments directly from a checking or savings account online or can send a check in the mail.

Note: If you expect your balance to be paid through financial aid, scholarships, waivers, stipends, or other awards, do not make a credit/debit card payment for this balance. Any resulting credit balance after financial aid is posted will be refunded to the credit/debit card, per our merchant agreement.

If Your Check Payment is Returned

  • A returned (dishonored) check means the bank refused to cash your check to Davenport University. 
  • The University assesses a $65.00 service charge for any returned check payment.
  • The University will notify you in writing.  You then have 14 days from the date of this notice to pay the total amount due to DU.

If  the University receives two or more returned checks from you, we will no longer accept your personal check for payment. Payment must then be made via Credit Card, Money Order or Cashier's Check.
