Bursar & Cashier Office
The Bursar & Cashier Office is responsible for ensuring that student accounts are accurate and paid in a timely manner. The Bursar & Cashier Office issues all credits as a result of financial aid and records all payments, ensuring that all charges for tuition, room, board, fees, and other miscellaneous items (i.e. campus safety charges) are applied to student accounts.
The office is also responsible for all non-payroll payments to Taylor vendors, faculty, and staff, the annual audit, and other business-related matters.
Online Billing Information
Taylor University bills by the semester and the billing statement and other account information is available online on the student portal Quick Links under Bursar Billing Statements.
- The initial fall billing statement will be available in late July and payment will be due August 20.
- The initial spring semester billing statement will be available in late December and is due January 20.
A statement will be issued on or by the last day of each month if there has been activity to the student account or if there is a balance still due for previously billed charges. Unbilled activity and pending financial aid or payment plans will also be listed on the online account site.
An e-mail notification will be sent to the student’s e-mail address when their new statement is available or there has been a change to the student account, and it is the student’s responsibility to access the account information to keep informed of their account status. Additional e-mails can be sent to the parents’ e-mail address if the parent has been set up as an authorized user by the student.
In order for a parent or other bill payer to view student billing information or make payments online, the student must first enter their parent(s) or other bill payer as an authorized user(s) through the student online site. There is no cost to pay via e-check, but the credit card option will incur a convenience fee. Authorized users must access the secure online billing site, using their e-mail address as the ID.
Questions should be directed to the Bursar’s Office.
Tuition Online Payment
Complete student account information is available on a secure online site, including current billing and monthly statements. Taylor University has contracted with an outside company (TouchNet) to provide this service. Payments can be made online by e-check or credit card (Discover, MasterCard, Visa, or American Express). There is no cost to pay by e-check, but credit cards incur a convenience fee. The secure TouchNet student account site can be reached by students through the University portal – myTAYLOR. Students can authorize additional TouchNet users – allowing the authorized user to view statements and to make payments. To authorize an additional user, students must:
- Access the Bursar Office Billing Statements under Quick Links on myTAYLOR.
- Choose the authorize user tab and enter the correct e-mail address for the parent or other authorized user.
The newly authorized user will then receive an e-mail notice with the link and password for the TouchNet site. The username is the authorized user’s e-mail address as entered by the student.
For questions regarding TouchNet Student Account billing, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 765-998-5123.
