Naropa University
Attention: Coordinator of Student Accounts
2130 Arapahoe Ave
Boulder, CO 80302

We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Phone Payments
Make your payment over the phone with a credit card by calling the Coordinator of Student Accounts at 303-546-3554

Online Payments
Make a payment online through the Billing & Payments section of MyNaropa.

If you are an international student and would like to pay your tuition via wire transfer, please contact the Coordinator of Student Accounts at The funds must reach Naropa’s account by the tuition due date in order to be considered on time. Depending on your bank, the transfer may occur instantaneously or take as long as several days to occur. After you have completed the wire transfer with your bank, please email with the following information:

  • student name
  • student ID number
  • wire transfer number
  • exact amount of the wire transfer, and
  • when the wire should arrive in Naropa’s account.

If you cannot pay tuition in full by the due date, Naropa offers a payment plan for the fall and spring semesters that breaks your tuition into three monthly payments.


You must be a degree-seeking student at Naropa and have at least a $500 unpaid balance in order to participate in this plan.


Go to Self-Service and click Student Finance and then the Payment & Refund Center link. You’ll be taken to our TouchNet payment portal where you can enroll in the plan.


There is a $45 administrative fee due upon enrollment. Payments can then be split into three, due in August,
September, and October for the fall semester; and in January, February, and March for the spring semester. No payment plan is available for the summer semester. Please reach out to with any questions or concerns.

A third party is paying my bill. Can I get an invoice on letterhead for them?


Yes! Go to the Student Finance page on Self-Service. Select the semester for which you need the bill. Then click the
View Statement link, on the right of the screen. If you need a statement without your schedule listed, please email and request a transactions-only statement.


Can I give them access to the payment portal?
Yes! This is called an Authorized User. Go to Self-Service. Then click Student Finance to go to your account activity and click Payment & Refund Center to be taken to our payment portal. On the right-hand side of the landing page, click Authorized User and follow the prompts. The third party will receive two emails and must log in within 24 hours of receiving them. They use a unique log in screen, different from the place students log in. Only the bill is visible, there is no access given to grades, courses, etc.


Please be aware that we cannot discuss a student’s account with anyone but the student. While an Authorized User allows an individual to access your account directly, it does not allow us to discuss information such as what charge is connected to what class, what financial aid you are receiving, etc. Many parents and other bill payers do have questions about these things, and if you would like them to have access to this information, you must complete the online FERPA Waiver through the registration department. This waiver will allow us to release all education-related information, including billing information, to whomever is indicated on the waiver.

If your financial aid monies exceed your direct costs, on your Naropa bill, we will refund the difference.


We highly recommend setting up an electronic refund: it’s quick because we schedule the funds to hit your account the day they are available (usually on Fridays); and it’s easy because after setting it up, it all happens automatically!


To set up Electronic Refund (Direct Deposit): go to Student Finance in Self-Service, and then click Payment & Refund Center to go to our payment portal. By clicking Electronic Refunds, you can set up direct deposit of credit balance refunds.


If you choose to receive a paper check, please be sure your address is correct by going to your User Profile in Self-Service (click on the person icon in the left-hand column menu or your name in the upper right-hand corner). Paper checks are mailed the day they are available (usually on Fridays), throughout the semester.
