Payment Options


Financial Institution

Please attempt to make payments through telephone banking, online banking or in person at a financial institution. 

  • Please allow for at least two business days for processing your payment and retain proof of payment.
  • If your payment is rejected by your financial institution for any reason, your balance will be subject to penalties as well as an administrative charge.
  • It is important to know your financial institution's local cut off time for payments. If you pay after this time on the due date, these payments are not processed until the next business day, and therefore would be subject to penalties.
