Pay an Optional Fee with a Recurring Payment

PATH: My Accounts > Optional Payments

Before you can set up a Recurring Payment for an Optional Fee, you must first make a payment on the optional fee. (See the Pay an Optional Fee topic in this article.) After you make your first payment, Campus assigns the optional fee to your student and the fee displays in your student's list of fees. After you make a payment and Campus assigns the fee to the student, you can use the Recurring Payments tool to schedule a recurring payment for that fee.
