A student information system and network fee is assessed each term and varies depending on full-time ($33) or part-time (based on hours) status. Visit the Bursar's site for more information.
The Ohio University Tuition Estimator is a tool you can use to approximate the cost of tuition and fees per semester. This tool is available on the Office of the Bursar’s tuition and fees page. Special eCampus rates are not included in the estimate. However, students who are taking online courses scheduled from the Athens Campus or one of the regional campuses can get an idea of how much their tuition and fees will be.
Several payment options are available and described HERE.
A payment plan is offered HERE.
Payment for Flexible Courses
All fees must be paid at the time you enroll. If you are enrolled at any campus of Ohio University, the comprehensive fee does not cover flexible course tuition and fees. You must pay the enrollment tuition and fees separately.
Students participating in flexible courses cannot participate in the payment plan offered by the Bursar’s Office.
