The primary function of the Student Accounts office is to issue bills, receive payments and provide information to help understand the aspects of a Vanderbilt account. Student Accounts posts miscellaneous charges and credits by the department from which they originate.
Online Billing and Payment Systems Upgrade
Vanderbilt University will be upgrading our online billing and payment systems (payment plans included) over the next few weeks. Due to this transition, all “Other Payers”, both new and existing, will need to be (re)assigned by the student into the new system. Please note that if existing payers are not set up in the new system, these individuals may not receive notification of balances due or have access to make payments moving forward.
As part of the upgraded system, the other payers will also now have the ability to enroll in the Vandy Plan, an interest-free monthly installment option available for enrollment beginning May 1, 2015.
To add an “Other Payer”, please follow these simple instructions.
- Log into your YES Landing Page, and click “Billing Portal”.
- Choose “Enter your Vandy Plan Portal” (Please understand this is to add other payers for the upgraded e-bill and payment portals also, not just for the Vandy Plan).
- On Your Account page, click "Add New" in the Other Payers section.
- Enter the information that is requested, and click "OK". (You must enter the username that your additional payer will use).
Once completed, the username and temporary password will be sent to your additional payer via e-mail. Simply repeat this process to add more than one additional payer to your account.

- Invoices are created at the beginning of each month.
