Credit/Debit Card

Marquette does not accept credit or debit cards directly. As a convenience to you, this option is available through a third-party provider. Payment may be charged to a Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. This service is outsourced to a third party and may be accessed through the link on our Web site or by calling (866) 893-4518. The service fee for using this option is variable depending on the amount of the charge. This system alerts the user to the service fee before they are asked for their credit or debit card information. 

Confirm the correct Student ID number and Account number are entered to ensure proper payment.   

*Note: Refunds resulting from a credit card payment will be refunded back to the credit card used.

Fall/Spring monthly payment plan

Marquette offers a payment plan administered by Nelnet.  The Marquette Monthly Payment Plan (MMPP) allows students and their families to pay tuition, fees, university housing and/or food charges in five equal monthly installments for the current term of enrollment. Payments are due on the fifth of each month. The fall semester program begins August 5th and runs through December 5th. The spring semester program begins January 5th and runs through May 5th.  Families must re-enroll each semester.  There is a $35 per semester enrollment fee, but there are no interest charges involved.

Please note: There is not an option to enroll in the payment plan for the summer term and the summer balance should not be included in your fall payment plan.
