Online Payment

  1. Why should I use the new online payment system? 

Our online payment system is a convenient way of making tuition payments since it allows you to execute such transactions from the comfort of your home. You no longer have to go to the bank or come to our campus to make your tuition payments. Additionally, your payment is processed quicker when you use the online system relative to Direct bank transfers and POS payment at the school premises. In addition, with the ongoing threat of COVID-19, this new payment method will enable us to further ensure social distancing and safety on campus by controlling the number of people within the premises at any given time.  

  1. How secure is the online payment system? 

The payment system uses encrypted communications, making it very secure. Also, we do not collect or save your financial data as all online payment attempts made by our customers from our website are terminated on either Interswitch or Paystack payment portals (which are both PCI DSS 3.2 compliant as Level 1 Service Providers (loosely referred to as PCI Level 1 compliance). 

  1. Why does the bank account number that appears when I choose the “Pay with Bank” option keep changing for every new transaction? 

The Bank account displayed during this type of Paystack checkout method is a Virtual and Dynamic (temporary and constantly changing) Account number. It is only valid for the time duration of the transaction (an attempt to make payment to this account number outside this transaction will fail). 

  1. How long does it take for my payment to reflect in the University’s account with this system?  

Immediately the transaction success message is shown, the payment is reflected on the University’s portal. 

 

  1. What kinds of bank cards are accepted for online payments? 

All Debit and Credit cards from all over the world, as long as they are issued by Mastercard, Visa, and Verve. 

  1. What does the “USSD” payment method mean? 

USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) Payment method Involves using a short code provided during the transaction to make the payment from your bank from your Mobile phone without the need of an Internet connection (GTB's *737#, UBA's *919# and Sterling Bank's *822#) 

  1. What payment methods do you accept?  

  • Paystack – Pay with Transfer (Zenith Bank Dynamic Account ), Pay with Card (Mastercard, Visa, Verve), Pay with Bank (First Bank of Nigeria, Guaranty Trust Bank, Kuda Bank, Sterling Bank, United Bank For Africa, Zenith Bank)
