At this time, the Cashier’s Office is not accepting cash payments.  Students are encouraged to make payment online through our Bill & Payment System.

For those not able to make payment online and, who traditionally pay with cash, you may purchase a Money Order made payable to George Mason University and send to us by mail.  Money Orders can be purchased at the following places, as well as banks and credit unions:

  • U.S. Post Office
  • Giant grocery stores
  • Safeway grocery stores
  • Walmart
  • 7-11 stores

We have partnered with our bank, Wells Fargo, to provide lockbox services.  This service will ensure that payments sent to us are processed in a timely manner, especially during times of University campus closure.

We ask that payments for student account balances (including scholarship checks) be sent to:

George Mason University
P.O. Box 76475

Please make sure that the student’s ID number (G#) is included on the check or in correspondence with the check.
