Credit/Debit cards are NOT accepted at the UW Tacoma Cashier's Office for payments associated with student account charges like tuition, transcripts or student loans.


In an effort to promote student safety, UW Tacoma Cashier's Office does NOT accept cash payments greater than $500.00.   Personal checks, cashiers/bank checks, and money orders will still be accepted. Or payment can be made online with a web check (no service fee) or credit/debit card (service fees are applied) via MyUW.


UW Tacoma does not accept foreign deposits for student account payments, even when they are drawn in US Dollars (USD). Foreign checks, money orders, cashier's checks, drafts or currency presented for deposit that were not issued by a bank in the United States, including Canada, are considered a foreign item.
