Electronic Billing Instructions

Cadets may pay by eCheck or credit card.  VMI accepts MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit or debit cards.  A convenience fee will be assessed at time of payment if paying by debit or credit card.  VISA is not accepted. 

The Student Accounting Office will accept credit card payments over the phone as well as paper checks.  

Make checks payable to the Treasurer of VMI, and mail to:

Student Accounting Office
Virginia Military Institute
Lexington, Virginia  24450 

If you need to wire funds directly to VMI, please contact Student Accounting for instructions. 

Cadets should designate an authorized bill payer only if someone else will need to view or pay the bill.   In Post View, cadets may designate an authorized payer(s) by going to Students / Financial Information /  Authorized Bill Payer.  The cadet must create their own unique pass code.  The cadet may enter up to three email addresses to be notified of the pass code and billing instructions to access the billing information.

Once a cadet has designated an authorized bill payer, an email will be sent with instructions.  The bill payer can view the cadet's Statement of Account or make a payment through the Guest Menu on Post View.  Click on the Cadet Statement of Account link to view the bill.  Click on the Make a Payment for a Cadet link to pay the bill.  Each of the links will prompt the bill payer for the cadet ID and pass code included in the email.  

VMI will assess a late fee of $100 or 10% of the unpaid balance, if less, for failure to pay tuition and fees by the due date.  VMI will dismiss cadets from the Institute for failure to pay tuition and fees and any other required obligation to the Institute as required.  The Institute also reserves the right to hold grades, transcripts, and diplomas until all financial obligations to the Institute have been satisfied.  Cadets must satisfy all financial obligations to the Institute for past semesters or terms before they are allowed to register for a succeeding semester or term. 

Unpaid accounts will be submitted to a private collection agency or the Attorney General's Office for collection.  All costs for collection including attorney fees will be added to the unpaid bill. 

Checks may be cashed in the Student Accounting Office, Smith Hall, Room 310. Government and personnel checks may be cashed, with proper identification.
