Accounting Office

The Covenant College Accounting Office is committed to caring for students and furthering their academic endeavors by accurately and safely stewarding their accounts and payments. We seek to further the mission of the College by providing the tools necessary for it to successfully function during the day-to-day operations, as well as in its strategic goals. We seek to offer biblical hospitality in word and deed and look forward to serving students, parents, staff, faculty, and administration each day.


The Accounting Office is responsible for all aspects of the College’s finances, including cash management, accounts payable, accounts receivable, student account payments, budgeting, purchasing, and financial reporting.


Payment Options

We recommend that student bills be paid by cash, paper check, or e-check (only a $1 flat fee for online e-checks) as these are the cheapest payment options available. However, we also accept credit card payments in our office as well as online.


If you would like to mail your payment, please send it to us at the address below:

If you would like to pay in person, please visit our office, which is located on the North end of Carter Hall in room 147.


If you would like to pay online, please visit and click on the "Pay Student Bill Online" link found on that page. You will need the student’s Banner ID number (it begins with the @ symbol) in order to make a payment online. All online payments received before 7:00 p.m. are posted the next business day.


Online payments can be made via e-check or credit card. To pay by e-check, you will incur an additional flat fee of $1. If you would like to pay by credit card, only MasterCard and Discover are accepted by our online payment site at this time. However, if you visit our office we accept MasterCard and Discover as well as American Express and Visa. Depending on the card, you will incur a 3-4% processing fee on online credit card payments or 2.75-3.5% on credit card payments made in our office.


Please note that all account balances must be paid in full before viewing grades, receiving transcripts, or registering for a subsequent semester.
