Cash Payment

Must be presented in the Student Accounts Office in person. Please, for your protection, never mail a cash payment to Drew or anywhere else (this includes Campus Mail) as it cannot be recovered if lost or stolen in transit.

Check or Money Order

May be presented in the Student Accounts Office or mailed to our payment address:

Drew University
Attn: Student Accounts
36 Madison Ave
Madison, NJ 07940

Post dated checks are NOT permitted – all payments are processed upon receipt regardless of date written on them. Please note: when paying a past due balance, the hold will remain on your account for 10 days when payments are made with a personal or corporate check to allow time for the payment to clear (cashier/bank checks and money orders are secured funds and the hold will be lifted immediately as long as the payment satisfies the balance due).

International Payments

Drew University has partnered with 2 vendors to streamline the international payment process. They are:  Flywire and PayMyTuition.

Both vendors allow you to pay securely from any country and any bank, typically in your home currency. By making your payment with these portals, you can:

  • Track your payments from start to finish
  • Save on bank fees and exchange rates
  • Contact their multilingual customer support team with any questions, day or night

To get started click or to go your Nelnet Student Account Center, located in TreeHouse.  Click on the ‘Payment Options” tab and you will see the links for both Flywire and PayMyTuition listed at the bottom. Students have the option to compare these 2 vendors and choose either one that best fits their needs.

PLEASE NOTE: Payments made via either of these international vendor platforms are to be utilized for University account charges only.  Any payments made above and beyond institutional charges will be refunded via Flywire to the original payment source. 

To make a payment without using the Student Account Center in TreeHouse, go directly to:
