This guide will show you how to set up Automatic Payments in your student portal if you would like to have payments made on the 1st of each month automatically from any saved payment type you have put in your portal.
Tip: In addition to setting up "Automatic Payments" you can use your personal online banking website to set up recurring checks to be mailed monthly to the Regency! It's quick and easy as many of our residents find this beneficial. Check out this article to learn who to make it out to and where to mail the payment!
Things You Should Know:
Before we get started, here are a few things you should know about Automatic Payments through your online portal.
- You must type in the amount you wish to pay automatically each month (usually monthly rent amount) as it will not charge the full balance due. In other words, if you type in the monthly rent amount it will charge your selected payment method for this specific amount on the 1st of each month. However, if there were any additional fees accrued (late fees, etc.) it will NOT pay this added amount!
- Only one payment method can be selected for automatic payments each month
- Credit Cards cannot be setup to pay a partial amount due
- If you have a concession (athlete or renewal), your setup will need to include the rental amount and the concession amount. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance!
