October 14, 2011 - Bursar
On March 11, 2011, Cornell University implemented a lockbox payment processing center through Tompkins Trust Company, Ithaca, NY for those who currently pay Bursar and CornellCard accounts by check mailed to our Day Hall address.
If you are making payments by check, we strongly encourage you to consider making payments via the Web through our Cornell Net.Pay site. Currently, 65% of our students and families use our secure Net.Pay site to make or schedule their payments, and the feedback has been very positive, as it saves both time and postage. Also, your payment is posted to your account within one to two business days.
If you wish to continue sending payments by check, please use the payment coupon at the bottom of your E-bill to send payment to the Office of the Bursar, P.O. Box 6738, Ithaca, NY 14851-6738. Do not send payments to our Day Hall address after March 11.
Payments sent to the lockbox without the completed payment coupon will cause delays in processing and posting your payments in a timely manner.
While we believe payments made online via Cornell Net.Pay to be the most secure and efficient way to pay, we hope that the lockbox implementation also will provide a beneficial service for those who pay by check.
