Forms of Payment
Payment of your bill is due in full upon receipt of each month's bill. For your convenience, we offer you a variety of ways to pay your bill each month. We accept personal checks, money orders, most major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card), and BuckID. (See restrictions under each subheading below.) Simply choose the payment option that best fits your needs.

This option allows you to pay your bill with a personal credit card through a secured page on our web site. Acceptable credit cards are Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.* For your convenience, this payment option is free and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Each month, your mailed billing statement includes a detachable payment stub and a pre-addressed, return envelope.

Additionally, processing of your payment takes several days; therefore, your payment should be mailed upon receipt of your bill.
