IMPORTANT CHANGES - Student Account Payment Policies



In an effort to control costs that impact students, Old Dominion University has contracted with a third party vendor, PayPath, to process all credit card transactions for tuition, room and board, and fees on student accounts. While credit cards are convenient, the fees associated with processing these payments cost nearly $1 million annually and negatively impacted the university’s ability to keep costs low for all students, whether they used credit cards or not. By using this process, Old Dominion can still offer the convenience of credit card transactions, while also enabling ODU to maintain its lower-cost payment alternatives. There is no change in where you make payments online. You will continue to use Leoonline and authorized users will continue to use Touchnet.

Effective on December 1, 2013:

All students who use credit cards will be charged a 2.75% convenience fee; however, there remain several options to pay a bill with little or no extra cost to you:

If you have any questions about the new credit card convenience fee or any of our payment options, please visit the Office of Finance website or email

Best wishes for a successful academic year at Old Dominion University!
