Billing Statement Options

1. All students will receive a paper billing statement each month around the 15th of the month as long as there is a balance due. You may pay this bill by mailing a check to the following address:

Webster University
P.O. Box 191165
St. Louis, MO 63119-7165

2. If you would like to pay by credit card or electronic bank transfer, you must do so through your Online Account: Use the Webster University online portal, CASHNet® via Connections on the university website. When your student is registered with the CMS, you are given a student ID#, activation code and directions for setting up your online account. This allows you to view your account at any time to see your balance due, payments made, and discounts applied. It is a secure system. (Be sure to set up email forwarding so that email notifications will come to your personal email account.)

You will be notified by e-mail around the 12th of the month, when a balance is due, that your statement is ready to be viewed. A link will be provided in the e-mail taking you to the Connections home page:  http://connections.webster.edu You will login to Connections to view your statement and make a payment.

How to Set-up Your Online Connections Account

When a student is registered for a CMS lesson, class or ensemble, a letter is e-mailed to the parent/bill payer with the student ID#, activation code and explicit directions for setting up the online billing account via Connections on the Webster University website:  www.webster.edu.  If you do not have this letter, contact the CMS office for assistance, (314) 968-5939 or e-mail cms@webster.edu. 

Through this process you will establish your Connections username and password.

Log-in to Your Student Account
