Freshman Fall 2014

Your Student Financial Account

The My OHIO Student Center provides convenient, easy-to-use, and secure access to your account details, account balance, and payment options.  You can also designate an authorized user that will enable other individuals to view your account details and make payments.

Billing

An e-mail notice will be sent to your Ohio University e-mail account when a bill is available for viewing on the My OHIO Student Center. Authorized users also will receive a notification if their e-mail address is provided. The My OHIO Student Center will detail the amount due (tuition, fees, residence hall, meal plan, and other campus charges) and due date.

You will be able to access your secure account using your OHIO ID and password. You may also create an “authorized user” account for parents (or others) to enable them to view your account. This process requires you to create a login and password for each authorized user.

The My OHIO Student Center will permit you to view your account balance, your current account activity, and access the electronic payment options.

Billing Schedule

Upon registering for classes at Ohio University, you have a legal obligation to pay tuition and fees. The Office of the Bursar produces your account balance, which will include charge and payment activity as well as a payment due date.

Payment Options

1. Online Payment Choices
The My OHIO Student Center enables you to make payments via:
  • eCheck - This is a direct debit from a checking or savings account (no fee).
  • Credit Card - This option enables you to make payments using a MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card (2.9% service charge).

2. Payments by Mail to

Ohio University
P.O. Box 960
Chubb Hall 010

Athens OH 45701

Payment Plan

Flexible, convenient payment options assist families in making their education plans a reality. Rather than making a large, single payment each semester, the Payment Plan allows families to spread the cost of education over time. The Payment Plan splits your semester tuition, fees, and room/board into four installments. This interest-free Payment Plan is available to you for a nonrefundable application fee of $40 per semester.

Student must enroll in the payment plan each term on the My OHIO Student Center or through the Authorized User web application.

Refunds

The Office of the Bursar offers direct deposit as a more convenient means of providing refunds to students. Instead of mailing a check, we will deposit the funds directly into the student’s bank account. Visit the My OHIO Student Center to enroll in direct deposit. Refunds via direct deposit are processed daily. Refunds via check will be issued once each week and mailed to the student’s residence hall or local address.

Financial Aid Refunds - If you receive financial aid in excess of your tuition and fees for a given term, a refund will be issued to the student. Refunds of financial aid funds will be issued starting the first day of the semester. All excess credit that occurs on your account will be refunded to you by check or by direct deposit to your bank account. Refunds of Parent PLUS Loan proceeds are mailed directly to the parent borrower at the address indicated on the promissory note.

Non-Financial Aid Refunds - A request for refund of non-financial aid funds can be sent via e-mail to bursar@ohio.edu or by requesting the refund at the Office of the Bursar or at a Regional Campus Student Service Center.
