Saint Louis University will accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express bank credit cards for payment of miscellaneous charges at University locations approved by the Treasurer's Office. Departments are responsible for the deposit of credit card payments with the Cashier's Office.
Departments processing charges by bank credit card must do so electronically using a terminal and printer or e- commerce product approved by the Treasurer's Office.
Valid MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express transactions may be accepted at approved locations; however, the University is not liable for improper use. It is the department's responsibility to recover chargebacks from the customer incurred due to invalid charges.
The University's depository account will be credited within two business days after the bank card transactions have been submitted to the bank. Departmental accounts will be credited upon receipt of a Web Departmental Deposit.
A fee is charged to the University by the bank for each credit card transaction. The cost associated with the acceptance of bank credit cards for payment will be allocated to the departments by the Controller's Office. Bank merchant numbers are used to record fee allocations.
To request authorization to accept bank credit cards for payment, contact the Office of the Treasurer.

At the end of each business day, submit the batch of daily transactions to the bank via a modem to charge the customer's bank card and credit the University's depository account.
