After you register, tuition and fees for summer classes will not be posted to student accounts until late June. Tuition and fees are charged based on the total number of credits for which you register during the entire summer term, not the number of credits during each individual session.
For example, the following scenario would equal 11 total credits of tuition/fees:
|Session 2||4 credits|
|Session 4||4 credits|
|Session 5||3 credits|
Student account statements are produced at the beginning of each month (e.g. July). Unpaid balances remaining after the 1st of the following month (e.g. August) become past due and will be assessed an interest charge. Past due balances may prevent future access to registration and transcripts. Visit the Business Affairs website for more information.
Web registration presents you with a confirmed class schedule. When you finish registering, your schedule is official and you are officially registered in the university. This obligates you to pay all tuition and fees for your classes. If you wish to cancel this commitment and reduce or eliminate tuition charges for the term, you must officially cancel your registration or withdraw from the university (see Tuition/Fee Reduction & Refund Schedule).
Electronic billing statements are sent out around the 1st week of each month. Notification that your statement is ready will be sent to your ONID email address. View your statement online. It is very important that your ONID address is active and that you check it regularly. You may also select to have your ONID email forwarded to an alternate address.
OSU currently accepts eCheck, paper checks, money orders and cash as acceptable payment methods. Students can use Student Online Services as a convenience option for making credit card payments. Please see the cashier's office payment information section for details on all acceptable payment methods.
Financial aid & scholarship refunds
Refunds will be automatically processed for students who have refunds due as a result of authorized financial aid being applied to their accounts during the week prior to the start of summer term. Students receiving paper checks will have their refunds mailed to their current mailing address on record. Students who have active direct deposit will have their refunds direct deposited to their bank account.
To request a refund check after disbursed financial aid, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the cashier’s office in the Kerr Admin. building. Checks are either mailed to the student’s current mailing address or direct deposited depending on which option the student has chosen. Complete information on requesting refunds is available online at Business Affairs.
