Payment Options

Each semester, student accounts are to be paid in full the first day classes begin, unless you opt to enroll in the semester payment plan. 

We accept cash, money orders, or US and Canadian checks.  The Canadian Exchange Rate is determined the first and 15th of each month and can be viewed online or by contacting the Business Office at (712) 722-6013.

You can also make payments online or enroll in the payment plan through Dordt's new third party servicing agent, ACI. The following processing fees will be applied upon payment 

  • $.75 for a direct payment from your bank account
  • 2.65% ($3.95 minimum) for credit/debit card payments

If you choose to enroll in the semester payment plan, you can make four equal monthly installments. Enrollment opens August 15 for the fall payment plan and January 1 for the spring payment plan.  An enrollment fee of $25 is required through ACI for each semester you sign up. 

Payments can be directed or mailed to:

Statement of Financial Responsibility

Students who do not pay their account in full by each semester due date will not be able to register until their account is fully paid. Past due tuition/fee accounts will accrue interest (9% annual rate) on the unpaid balance until paid in full. Students with delinquent accounts will not be able to pre-register for subsequent terms, receive copies of their grades or transcripts, or receive diplomas until the university receives full payment.

The Business Office will send email notifications to the student's Dordt email at the beginning of each month. A student's account can be discussed with the parent(s) or other responsible party upon written request of the student. Requests can be made by returning the Student Account Release form (note: this form does not allow for the release of information regarding grades or transcripts. Please contact the Registrar's Office for release of any academic information).

Note to students: It is important to understand that as the student you are responsible for coordinating payment of your account. This means it is your responsibility to:

  • File all necessary paperwork for financial aid in a timely manner.
  • Communicate with your parents or other responsible party if they will be paying for your account.
  • Contact the Business Office if you are having difficulty paying your bill.
