 How will I receive my billing statement? 

  • Electronic Billing (e-bills) is the official means of providing student account statements to all current UNA students.  When a new bill is available an e-mail notification will be sent electronically to the student’s UNA Portal e-mail account and any Authorized Users established by the student.  Students are advised to check their e-mail regularly.   

Can I have my bills mailed to me?

What types of payments are accepted online?

  • Within the E-bill account, a student and authorized individuals can make online student account payments with an electronic check (e-check) or with a credit card (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover).  The option to pay by e-check and credit card are available online or in person only.
