Is the personalized link that I receive in my email secure?
Wright State’s TouchNet payment gateway is PCI compliant and secure. If using the Safari browser, you might get a message stating that this is not a secure site. This is because your personal computer is not updated with the latest Safari SSL certificate. If you get this message:
- Use another browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer or Edge.
- Or update your personal computer with the latest Safari browser root certificate.
Why can’t I use my financial aid to pay the Orientation fee?
Your Orientation fee does not qualify for financial aid use because it is a fee that occurs prior to your academic enrollment as a Wright State student. The Orientation fee cannot be added to your Bursar account. However, you can pay conveniently online or by check, cash, or money order.
