By Mail

You can send a check, money order, cashier’s check, 529 payment, or certified funds through the mail. Mail payments at least two weeks before the due date. Payments sent in the mail must be received by close of business on the due date, 5 p.m. Mountain Time during fall and spring or 4:30 p.m. during summer. Postmarks do not constitute receipt of payment. Priority mail is not guaranteed to be received on time. Paying online is faster.
