Mississippi College is pleased to announce an enhancement to the student billing system with the implementation of TouchNet, an electronic billing and payment solution for higher education. We believe this will streamline the student billing process, reduce costs and eliminate excessive paper handling. It also helps meet the growing expectation of students and their parents for online payment services and provides you an accurate, current and secure statement of your account that is available anytime you want to see it.
eBill is Mississippi College’s official method for sending student account statements. Students will receive email notification at their MC email address when a new statement is available online, enabling them to review their statement and make payments online. This service is a secure method for viewing student account information and making online payments.
In addition to students receiving statement notification at their MC email address, they will have the ability to add an alternate email address and cell phone number in which to receive new statement notification.
They will also have the ability to add authorized payers/users to their account (typically a parent or guardian). Authorized users will also receive email notification of new online statements and be able to make online payments.
