              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
