Online Payment

Payment of fines and fees can be made online.

Direct Payment

Direct payment of fines and fees can be made at the Student Payment Services Office, located in Building D Room 101. All checks must be made payable to Northeastern Illinois University.

Payments for ticket fines may be made with cash, check or credit card, with the exception of fines for booted vehicles and permanent holds that require immediate release. Fines for booted vehicles and immediate permanent hold releases must be paid in cash, money order or cashier’s check.

Payments by Mail

Please address your payment to Northeastern Illinois University, 5500 North St. Louis Avenue, Building D Room 101, Chicago IL 60625. Be sure to allow sufficient time for postal delivery when making payments by mail. Do not send cash payments in the mail. Only send a check, money order or certified cashier’s check.

Fines not paid within 14 days from date of issuance will be assessed an additional late fee of $15. Continued failure to pay fines may result in collection enforcement processing, such as academic and transcript holds, collection agency transfers, collection through the State of Illinois Comptroller’s Office Offset Program, immobilizing vehicle “boot” and towing.

Payment Plans

Payment plans are established only for owners/operators of vehicles not currently booted with outstanding balances of more than $100. Once a vehicle has been immobilized or “booted,” full payment of all outstanding parking debts is required in the form of cash, money order, credit card (Visa/MasterCard/Discover) or cashier’s check.

One-third of the complete balance is required to start a payment plan. The minimum installment payment is $15. Maximum time limit for payment plans for all balances due is three months. Payments are due no later than three business days after the due date. A student’s account will remain on hold until the account is paid in full.

Outstanding balances of $100 or less do not qualify for a payment plan. If the scheduled payments are not paid on time and the account is more than 30 days past due, the payment plan is subject to being cancelled by the Parking Office.

The establishment of a payment plan only allows a temporary hold release for class registration. Diplomas and transcripts will not be released until the owner/operator has paid the total outstanding parking debt in full.
