Payments & KatePay

Student Accounts distributes all statements electronically using KatePay. Students must log into KatePay via KateWay using their KateWay login and password. Parents and other third parties may log into KatePay to view statements and make payments if they have been set up as authorized users by the student. KatePay is the easiest way to make payments to your student account, but you can also pay in person or by mail, and only using a check, money order or cashier’s check. Credit card payments cannot be made in person, over the phone or via mail or email. This is a security measure that ensures confidentiality of your payment information. If your tuition and fees are billed to an outside agency, we have a third-party billing option.

Login to KatePay to check your balance, view and print your statement, view your payment history or make a payment.

Make a Webcheck payment using your checking or savings account, and no fee is charged.

Paying by a credit or debit card, including but not limited to, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, will result in a 2.75% per-transaction service fee (as of Fall 2015).

Enroll in a payment plan so your family can budget the cost of tuition and fees by spreading them over easy-to-manage payments throughout the semester. KatePay shows you your current payment plan status, lets you make a payment toward one of your installments or schedule future payments.

There is a one-month window at the beginning of each semester when you can sign-up for a plan. You will pay a $50.00 enrollment fee per semester, but the fee is waived if you schedule automatic electronic payments. You may use your checking, savings or credit card to make payments.

Enrollment and due date information will be emailed to each student one month prior to the start of the semester. The payment plan is scheduled so that current balances are paid in full prior to registration for the following semester.

For the Standard Payment Option or the Installment Payment Plan, a student’s account must be paid in full prior to the first day of registration for the following semester. Otherwise, a hold will remain on the student’s account until the balance is paid in full.

Sign up for the Installment payment plan:

  • Sign onto KatePay
  • Click on the "Payment Plans" tab
  • Click on "Enroll Now"
  • Select the current term
  • Read the plan details and “Continue”
  • Review the Eligible Charges and Credits then select “Display Payment Schedule”
  • Review the Installment Schedule then select “Yes” or “No” for scheduling payments then “Continue”
  • A message will pop up about your answer to the last question, select “OK” or “Cancel” then “Continue”
  • Choose a payment method
  • Review your Payment Agreement then select "I Agree"
  • Print your agreement then “Continue”
  • You will receive a confirmation that you are on the payment plan

Electronic refunds are fast and secure. There's no waiting in line, no trips to the bank, no waiting for the check to clear, or no paper waste. Enter your checking or savings account information in KatePay so refunds can de deposited into your account electronically.

To sign up for e-refunds:

  • Sign onto KatePay
  • Click on E-Refunds
  • Click on Set up Account
  • Enter your checking or savings information
  • Scroll down
  • Click on Continue
  • Click on I Agree
  • Scroll down
  • Click Continue

A screen should come up that says "Your new ACH payment method has been saved"

Your refund will be electronically deposited into your bank account on the same day that the refund would normally be processed. Refunds are processed weekly on Fridays. If a check does have to be printed and it is lost or not cashed there will be a $35 stop payment fee assessed to your student account. If a student account was paid with a credit card, any refund or financial aid will be refunded back to the credit card before any money is refunded to the student.

Excess Financial Aid Refunds
Excess financial aid refunds are processed beginning 14 days after their disbursement, and they must be processed electronically through KatePay. There are no exceptions to this policy. Monitor your KatePay account online to verify that refund has been processed and issued. If it has, the balance on your account will be zero and your recent activity will indicate, “Electronic Student Refund."

Student Withdrawal
If a student withdraws from school, makes changes to their registration and/or room and board after receiving a refund, the student may be required to repay all or a portion of the refund amount back to St. Kate's. Repayment should be made immediately.

In compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), your student records may not be shared with a third party without your written consent. Adding an authorized user is your written consent that an individual may view your student account information and make payments on your behalf. This does not give the authorized user access to your stored payment methods, academic records or other private information.

Follow these steps to set up an authorized user in KatePay:

  • Click on the Authorized User link
  • Click on Add an Authorized User
  • Insert the authorized user's e-mail address
  • Select "yes" or "no" to the next 3 questions
  • Click Add User

1098-T forms are available electronically in KatePay under the eStatements tab. Your 1098-T will be available no later than January 31 of each year, unless it falls on the weekend. Use Internet Explorer for the best experience, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer, and disable your pop-up blocker.

Signing the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement form authorized St. Kate’s to provide the form electronically on your KatePay account.

St Catherine University's IRS reporting method uses Box 2 (Tuition and Fees) and Box 5 (Scholarships and Grants). The University does not report to the IRS using Box 1, so you will never have an amount in that box. You can obtain payment information by logging into your KatePay account and printing your billing statements or your account activity for the tax year.

Box 4 will show any adjustment made for a prior year for qualified tuition and related expenses that were reported on a prior year's 1098-T. Box 6 shows adjustments made to scholarships or grants for a prior year.

If the boxes on the form are blank, please verify that you have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed in your computer. You can link to the Adobe Reader update from KatePay, and once it is installed, you will need to restart your computer.

Payment by personal check, money order, cashier's check, or cash is accepted Monday through Friday during published office hours.

For after-hours payments, a drop box is located outside the Student Accounts Office. Please do not deposit cash in the drop box.

The Third Party Billing option is for student's whose tuition and fees are billed directly to an outside agency. The University must receive an authorization form from the sponsoring agency before third party billing can be processed. All billing authorizations, which may be a letter, purchase order, or voucher, must be on official agency letterhead and signed by an officer of the organization. Students, who charge their books to their student account, are responsible for providing copies of the receipts to the Student Accounts Office or the sponsoring agency directly.

Third party billing statements are prepared after the drop/add period for the term in order to limit changes that might impact the amount due for tuition and fees. Statements are sent directly to the sponsoring agency.

Authorizations may be mailed, faxed, emailed, or hand delivered to the Student Accounts Office.

Mail Authorizations to:

All students are required to complete the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement form once per academic career. All other forms are voluntary. If you have any questions regarding the forms, please contact Student Accounts at 651.690.6503 or

The Student Financial Responsibility Agreement must be submitted once per academic career. This document contains the official explanation of the University’s payment policies. Failure to complete this form will result in a HOLD being placed on your student account and will prevent future registration and release of transcripts or diplomas.

To qualify for an extension of the final payment due date, students must submit an Employer Tuition Reimbursement form prior to the beginning of each semester for which they will be receiving this benefit. Any portion of the bill not paid by the employer must be paid by the first day of class each semester. The employer paid portion will be due no later than 30 days after grades are due. A 1% monthly finance fee is assessed on any unpaid balance. The student is responsible for all finance fees assessed the day they are assessed. If the employer does not pay for the classes, the student is responsible for any unpaid balance. It is the student’s responsibility to follow up with the employer to ensure timely payment. Account balances not paid by the required date will be considered in default and the student will no longer be eligible for this extension to pay late.

If you have not submitted a Title IV Authorization form, you may be receiving a refund and still have a balance due on your student account. If you have filled out the Title IV Authorization form and selected "Do Not Authorize," you may receive a refund and still have a balance due on your student account. If you are on a payment plan, you may receive a refund because we cannot use current academic year Title IV financial aid funds to pay prior academic years charges. The refund should be used to pay your payment plan balance.

If you have a past due balance from a previous academic year, your current academic year financial aid Title IV funds must be issued to you as a refund. The refund should be used to pay your past due balance.

Non-Title IV funds, such as St. Catherine grant funds may be used by the Office of Student Accounts to pay prior term and prior academic charges.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), prohibits postsecondary educational institutions from disclosing the education records of students to most third parties without the student's written consent. This form is for the use of students who wish to voluntarily consent to the release of their student account records to their parents or another authorized third party upon the request of the parent or third party.

It is the policy of the University to allow students to appeal the Tuition Refund Policy under the following circumstances:

  • Serious medical condition
  • Death in the family
  • Military activation
  • University Error

Appeals for tuition refunds will not be approved for reason of failure to drop or non-attendance. An appeal must be received prior to the last day to withdraw for the applicable term. Students must explore all other options, including taking incompletes prior to completing an appeal.

Students must complete a Request for Exception to Tuition Refund Policy form and include supporting documentation, including a letter of explanation. If an appeal is approved, a W (Withdrawal) will remain on the student’s academic record for each course.

This form must be printed before you complete it.

Defaults: If you default (fail to pay back your loan), your account will be placed with a professional collection agency for further collection action, which means your loan will be accelerated (made fully due). You would then be responsible for paying all collection and/or legal fees. A hold will also be placed on your Student Account which will prevent you from obtaining a transcript or registering for further classes.

Loan Consolidation: Consolidation may be a consideration for some borrowers. Please look at all your Perkins and/or Nursing Benefits on your Master Promissory Note before consolidation so you have a complete understanding of your benefits. If you have additional questions, contact UAS.
