Effective June 1, 2024, payments made via credit card and debit card will be assessed a non-refundable service fee of 2.95% (minimum $3) for domestic issued cards and 4.25% (minimum $3) for international issued cards. 

Governors State University (GovState) has been offering the convenience of payment of tuition and fees by credit or debit cards through a 3rd party partnership with TouchNet (via their PayPath service).  TouchNet PayPath is certified compliant with credit card security regulations, ensuring continued protection of your financial data when processing credit card and debit card payments.  Charging of credit and debit card service fee will allow GovState to continue offering the service of credit card and debit card payments.  This service fee offsets the credit card transaction fees charged by the credit card companies.  GovState does not control these credit card transaction fees and proceeds from this service fee goes to the credit card companies. 

Additional important information:

  • The service fee percentage is established by the credit card processor (TouchNet), and not by GovState.
  • The service fee will be automatically added to your card payment. 
  • The service fee is non-refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is canceled, refunded, credited, or charged back.
  • Effective June 1, 2024, the current card information stored in TouchNet will no longer work. You will need to set-up your credit card or debit card information again so that it will be available through the TouchNet PayPath service system. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

  No service fee will be assessed on payments made by cash, check, and electronic check.
