Making Payments

Northwest University requires that payment for all semester charges, tuition and fees, be paid in full on or before the first day of classes each term. There will be a 1.5% service fee for credit card and online debit card payments.

There are a few ways to make a payment:

Cashier’s Office

You can pay in person on the first floor of the Davis Administration building (cash, credit/debit, check), or over phone 425-889-5241.


Log-on to your Eagle Profile and click on Transaction and Running Balance to view transactions and the current owing balance. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Make an Online Payment."


Log-on to Student Account Balance and make a payment. This site will not list an owing balance, it is just a payment site, so you will need to be prepared with the amount you want to pay and you will  need your student ID.
