• Account Charges and Online Payments

    Hamline University account charges are added electronically. Through the summer of 2021, online statements are produced at the beginning of each semester and monthly thereafter. Beginning in Fall 2021, charges will be available to view in Workday.

    There are many advantages to these services being available online:

    • Paperless and environmentally responsible
    • Students' account charges can be viewed or paid online 24/7
    • Ability to invite a 3rd party to view account charges and make payments
    • Option for either online E-Check payments or online credit card payments
    • Secure transactions that meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCIDSS)
    • Real time processing

    Access Payment Systems

    Students: Through the summer of 2021,  log into Piperline and select Student Account Services > Cashnet Payment Portal. Beginning fall 2021, log into your Workday account and navigate to your Finance dashboard.

    Parents or authorized 3rd party member: Through the summer of 2021, log directly into Cashnet with the username and password provided when your student established your access. Beginning fall 2021, students will sign up their 3rd party member through their Workday account. The invited person will receive an email directing them to finish setup to access the student's account and view charges or make payments.

    Account Charges

    When account charges are added, students will be notified via email and/or their notification inbox in Workday. Students can navigate to their Workday Finances dashboard to view their account and make payments.

    Through the summer of 2021, when a new online statement is available for viewing, you will receive an email in your Hamline email account which will direct you to Piperline to view your bill. The email received by invited Payers will link directly to the website to login and view the statement. Note: Make sure that the computer does not have a Pop-Up Blocker that will block the access to the statement. A reminder email is automatically sent if you have not actually logged into the system and viewed your E-Bill. Only one reminder email is sent per E-Bill.

    View Account Activity

    To view your account charges in more detail, navigate to your Finances dashboard in Workday and select the link to "View Account Activity" or "View Statement."

    Through the summer of 2021, log into Piperline and go to Student Account Services > The Up-to-date student account detail for your most up-to-date account activity.

    The E-Bill is a web-based presentation of your monthly bill. It represents a snapshot in time of your student account. If any new transactions occur, these transactions will show on the next E-Bill.

     

    Online Payments

    The specific ways available to pay your student account include:

    • Direct Debit (no fee)
    • American Express, Discover, VISA, and MasterCard payments accepted only online. A non-refundable 2.75% convenience fee is charged for each transaction.
    • Cash or check payments are accepted at the cashier's window in East Hall. You can also mail check payments to the Student Accounts office at 1536 Hewitt Avenue, Mail Stop A1770, St. Paul, MN 55104.

    For more detailed instructions on how to make payments in Workday, check out our Workday Student Resources page.

    To comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCIDSS), the university carefully processes all credit card payments according to industry standards. The credit card industry implemented PCIDSS to protect the security of your personal information.

    Credit Card Transaction Fee

    The university has contracted with a third party service provider that is compliant with the PCIDSS to process credit cards on our behalf. The 2.75% rate charged by the service provider is determined as the cost of providing the service. The fees collected are retained by the service provider for payment of the bank transaction fees.

    The 2.75% fee is not refundable, even if your student account payment is refunded.

    Installment plan

    The installment plan allows students to split their tuition into more manageable monthly installments over the course of the semester. For more information, please go to our payment options page.
