UNH is pleased to unveil epay: a new
electronic billing and payment system.
With epay, you are able to view and pay your bill online from the convenience of your own home, or authorize someone else to pay on your be-
half. epay is part of UNH’s “path to paperless” initiative, aimed at creating greater efficiencies through the use of technology, while at the same
time reducing expenses on paper and postage.
You will receive notification through your UNH e-mail account that an e-bill has been posted. You may also authorize someone else, such as a
parent, to view and pay your bill. Students may log in to epay through Matrix self service at http://matrix-sws.newhaven.edu/student
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I really need a UNH email account?
Yes! From now on, important university related information and notification of e-bill postings will be sent
directly to your UNH e-mail account. If you do not have an account, or can’t remember your username or
password, please visit the Campus Card Office in Echlin Hall or call (203) 932-7054. You should check your
UNH e-mail account regularly.
What is an e-bill notification?
An e-bill notification comes in the form of an e-mail to your UNH account, alerting you that your billing state-
ment is available for viewing. Your e-bill will display the same information as a traditional paper bill.
Is this online payment system secure?
Yes it is. UNH has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions which ensures all transactions are handled in a
completely secure environment.
Can I get a paper bill instead?
Yes. The university is planning to transition from paper bills to electronic bills in the fall semester. As a part
of this transition, you will receive paper and electronic bills in the fall. Starting in December, you will only
receive electronic bills. If you wish to continue to receive paper bills, you must submit an Electronic Billing
Exemption Appeal Form for approval (available in the Bursar s Office). To receive an appeal form by mail or
