If you are an ECU student or parent, then you may have noticed when you went to pay tuition for this upcoming year, that there were some changes in how you can pay.
Some students said they understand the university is trying to save money, but they don't like that it means they have to pay.
ECU officials say this year they have outsourced to a company who takes care of credit card tuition payments.
But because of this there are some changes students should be aware of. Students can only pay with a credit card online. And that new company charges a 2.75 percent agree.
Also, that company does not accept visa cards, so you must pay with a Discover, Mastercard, or American Express.
Some students we talked to say this has made things more of a hassle, and pricey when paying with a credit card.
But ECU officials say the switch is saving the university a lot of money.
If you pay with a check, money order, or cash there is no fee.
ECU officials say this is a change that many universities in the state are going to in order to save money.
