How to Pay
The University will accept the following forms of payment in addition to financial aid and loans toward a student account balance: cash (U.S. dollars), checks (must be drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. dollars), and wire payments.
Please keep in mind that funds for a student's personal expenses or off campus living should be given directly to the students and not sent to the student account. Payments applied to the student account are for the balances due on the student's account related to tuition and fees and on campus housing. Payments in excess of what is due may be refused or if paid online, will not be refundable until the end of the term minus a $50 service charge, according to the University's "Overpayment Refund Policy".
If paying by paper check, please be sure to include the student's full name and University issued ID number on the face of the check. Checks should be made payable to: Pepperdine University.
Paper checks may be dropped off in person at the Office of Student Accounts, OneStop or the Cashier's Office, all located on the second floor of the Thornton Administrative Center on our Malibu campus.
Or mail your check to:

eCHECK (electronic check):
eCheck payments may be made online through WaveNet. Before making a payment, you will need to have the following information for the bank account you would like to pay from: the US Bank routing number, the account number of the checking or savings account, and the primary bank account holder's name. Please make sure this is an account that you may use for ACH transactions. If you are not sure, please contact your bank. Do not enter a debit or credit card number as it will not go through and will be returned. The student account will then also be charged a $25 returned check fee. After three returned checks, you will no longer be able to pay by check or eCheck, only cash, Cashier's Check or wire transfer from then on.
International Wire Transfers
The most efficient means for an international student to pay their student account balance is through Flywire. This can be accessed through your WaveNet account under the "Make A Payment" button. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts at 310-506-8000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need additional assistance.
Domestic Wire Transfers
If paying by domestic wire transfer, please contact the Student Accounts Office at email@example.com for the information necessary to make a domestic wire payment.
