Cashier’s Office

The mission of the Cashier’s Office is to collect money due to the University. The Cashier’s Office is dedicated to providing courteous and outstanding customer service, and accurate posting of student accounts. The Cashier’s Office will continue to develop innovative ways to provide customers with quality and timely service. Internally, the Cashier’s Office will continue to monitor operational functions in order to reduce processing time; while maintaining a high level of internal controls and professional accuracy.


The Cashier’s Office is closed and is not accepting cash payments.  Students are encouraged to make payment online through our Bill & Payment System.

For those not able to make payment online and, who traditionally pay with cash, you may purchase a Money Order made payable to George Mason University and send to us by mail.  Money Orders can be purchased at the following places, as well as banks and credit unions:

  • U.S. Post Office
  • Giant grocery stores
  • Safeway grocery stores
  • Walmart
  • 7-11 stores

We have partnered with our bank, Wells Fargo, to provide lockbox services.  This service will ensure that payments sent to us are processed in a timely manner, especially during times of University campus closure.

We ask that payments for student account balances (including scholarship checks) be sent to:

George Mason University
P.O. Box 76475
Baltimore, MD 21275-6475

If payment is being sent for overnight delivery by courier, please send to:

Lockbox Services 76475
Wells Fargo Bank
Attn:  George Mason University Lockbox 76475

Please make sure that the student’s ID number (G#) is included on the check or in correspondence with the check.
