Domestic student payment options

Make sure you allow plenty of time for your payment to be processed by the due date. Your payment due date is printed on your fees invoice. If you don't pay in full by the due date, you risk losing your place in class and AUT may suspend your access to university services.

There are many ways you can pay your domestic student fees at AUT.

  • Company legal name
  • Company address
  • Company contact person (full name, title, email, phone number)
