How do I pay API?

API accepts checks, bank draft/ACH, money orders, direct billpay, and credit cards.

API cannot take any payment over the phone.

To pay by check or money order:

Make checks and money orders payable to Academic Programs International and send to API’s Austin address. Each check should include your full name and API account number, if possible. Money orders MUST include your full name.

To pay by bank draft/ACH:

Log in to your @api account and click “Make a Payment” (located on the Payments tab) and submit a bank draft/ACH payment electronically – OR – complete the form found on page 2 of the billing statement (forms must be submitted via fax or email). There is no fee to pay by bank draft. Payments are processed through a secure online account and bank information is destroyed after the payment has been entered. New payments will require the form be re-submitted.

To pay by online billpay:

This must be done through your bank account. You must log in to your online bank account, add API to the Payee List with the Austin mailing address, and enter your API account number when prompted for an account number.

Credit card payments:

If you wish to pay by credit card instead of one of the methods above, you may pay with a Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. This method involves a convenience fee of 2.9%, if the card is non-U.S. then the 4.5% is applied instead of the 2.9%. To pay by credit card, log in to your @api account and click “Make a Payment” (located on the Payments tab) and submit a credit card payment electronically – OR –  complete the form found on page 2 of the billing statement (forms must be submitted via fax or email). Payments are processed through a secure online account and card information is destroyed after the payment has been entered. New payments will require the form be re-submitted.
