QuikPAY - Online Billing and Payments


Students may access the online system to view their statement and pay it online by visiting QuikPAY after logging into CentralLink at using their CMU global ID and password. Students can designate third parties as authorized payers in QuikPAY, which allows those individuals to receive notifications when billing statements are available and to make online payments toward their students' accounts.

QuikPAY Features (requires Adobe Reader) 

Parents & Other Authorized Payers:

Authorized Payers may view the billing statement and pay online by going directly to the QuikPAY for Authorized Payers login page. Please remember that the student must first set up an account for the authorized payer and provide a temporary password before the first login.

When logging in, the CMU account number will be required.

Delinquent Account & Late Fee Policies

Returned Check Fee:  
A $25.00 handling fee is charged for paper and/or electronic checks returned by the bank (i.e., insufficient funds, account closed) which were presented to the university.

Statements & Delinquent Accounts Policies :
Central Michigan University issues monthly billing statements electronically via the QuikPAY Billing System.  Billing notifications are sent to CMU global email addresses every time a bill is ready for review. For a schedule of when these statements are issued, please visit the Billing Statement Information and Due Dates page. Students are responsible for accessing these m​onthly email statements for their account balances and payment due dates. Students will incur late fees if the monthly balance is not paid by 5:00pm Eastern Time on the scheduled due date. Past due accounts may be referred to a collection agency and, if referred, collection costs of up to 23% will be assessed. Once the account is referred to a collection agency, the past due account will be reported to the Credit Bureau. CMU reserves the right to place a pre-payment hold on any student account where the student exhibits a poor payment history. This pre-payment hold would require advance payment in full prior to registering.

Late Fees Policy:

Monthly late fees will be assessed to accounts as follows:
$0.01 - $9.99 | No late fee

$10.00 - $59.99 | $1.00 per month

$60.00 and up | $30.00 per month
Please also note that if any portion of a past due balance includes tuition, a $100 non-payment of tuition fee will be assessed to the student account. 

If you have questions, please email us at or call (888)-610-4991.
