Financial Aid & Billing

Summer term financial aid requires a 2019-2020 FAFSA Application.

 

Learn more about financial aid as it applies to Summer Session at the Office of Financial Aid website. Disbursements of some types of financial aid will begin shortly before the start of Session 1.

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. Our tuition reduction and refund schedule provides you with key deadlines.

Electronic billing statements are sent via ONID email on the 5th of each month. OSU currently accepts eCheck, paper checks, money orders and cash as acceptable payment methods. You can view your billing statement, pay your bill and find more student billing information online at Business Affairs.

Payment Obligation

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
Total 11 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. The Business Affairs website contains more information regarding student billing.

VA Education Benefits

The VA treats Summer Session slightly different than a standard term. It's best to think of summer term as being made up of 6 mini-terms, with each being certified independently. For complete information, please visit Military and Veteran's Resources Summer Term Enrollment.

Additional Fees

All new students (except non-degree seeking) are charged a one-time fee of $350.00 at the start of their first term at OSU. This fee provides access to a variety of OSU programs and services at no additional charge. Programs and services included in the fee include, but are not limited to, open house programs, START, CONNECT, pre-enrollment advising, course drop/add/withdrawal, and official transcripts.

A student ID card service fee of $25.00 is charged to all new and readmitted students their first term after admission or readmission. 

Additional fees may accompany specific courses or be assessed as noted in the online Schedule of Classes (i.e. lab supplies, study abroad, field study, etc).
