Welcome to the Business Office
We recognize that a college education is a major investment for students and their families. Here at Landmark College we try to limit our fee increases and be as generous as possible with our payment schedules. But we also need to ensure that we have the funds on hand to meet our promises to our students, and to provide support for our educational programs. Our goal is to make our programs as flexible as possible to meet individual student needs, and our Business Office team is here to make the process of payments and refunds as easy as possible.
Landmark's financial aid packages typically consist of a mix of state and federal grants and loans, as well as college scholarship support of up to $42,000. The Financial Aid Office is ready to assist you in funding your education at Landmark College and share a wide variety of funding sources available to you.
Quikpay is the College’s convenient online system for credit card, debit card and e-check payments. It can be used to pay tuition and fees, and to add value to student ID cards. Students can set up authorized payers—such as parents—who will receive billing notification via email. They will be able to make online payments, review bills and examine payment history 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Quikpay accepts American Express, MasterCard, Discover and e-check for all payments, and Visa for adding value to student ID cards. A 2.70% service fee applies to credit card payments; there is no service fee for e-checks. Students can set up their payers through their Landmark College Intranet Account and their authorized payers can pay through the College Quikpay system.
The Campus Debit Account is a convenient way for students to purchase books and supplies at the beginning of the semester, as well as ensure access to spending money for snacks and supplies during the semester. Funds can be added to the account at any time (see Frequently Asked Questions).

Frequently Asked Questions about the Campus Debit Account
Where do I get a Campus Debit Card Account?

How do I add funds to the card?

You will need to know the student’s ID number and birthday. There are no credit card service fees charged to use this service.

How do I check my balance?
- Your account balance appears on your receipt after making a purchase with your Campus Debit Card. Students also have online access to account balances through SharkNet.
What happens to unspent funds?
- If a student is planning to return to the College, the funds will remain on the card for use when the student returns. If a student is not planning to return to Landmark, all unspent funds are credited to the student’s tuition account. Any credit balances on the tuition account are refunded several weeks after the end of the semester.
Can I get a cash advance from the funds on my Campus Debit Account?
- No – the College does not give cash advances from the debit card. If a student needs cash, they should use the ATM cash machines located outside the Bookstore near the student mailboxes or in the lobby of the Dining Hall. Campus cards do not work in the ATM. Students can also cash checks in the College Bookstore.
Does the Campus Debit Card work in the laundry machines?
- No – at this time the Campus Debit Card is not compatible with the ChangePoint system used by our laundry machines. The laundry machines accept coins (change machines available in laundry rooms) or traditional bank debit cards (see Laundry Services).
What amount does the College suggest for opening an account?
- For the Fall or Spring semester we suggest that the student start with $500 to $600, which should be enough for books, some supplies and some extra spending money. For the Summer programs, $100 is a good starting amount. The Bookstore also accepts cash, check, VISA and MASTERCARD.
