Late Fees and Financial Holds
Students will be sent an e-mail notification with instructions to log into their My OHIO Student Center to view their account. The account will detail charges and payments, including all applicable due dates. Balances not paid by the due date will be assessed a 1.5% late payment fee on all unpaid balances.
Holds that are applied to your student account are visible in the Holds section of your My OHIO Student Center.
Past Due Balance Holds
Tuition and fees are due by the due date indicated on your My OHIO Student Center Charges Due. If financial responsibilities have not been met, a student will receive a financial hold on their student account. Students with a financial hold are not eligible for registration for future terms and are prevented from obtaining records such as transcripts and grades. In addition, students whose accounts are not paid in full at the time of graduation will not receive a diploma or any other certification of program completion.
Students who have unanticipated financial problems during a term should resolve them with the help of the Office of the Bursar and the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, as well as resources outside of Ohio University such as parents and relatives.
Former students who have failed to honor the terms and conditions of either a Federal Perkins loan or a University long-term loan will have a loan hold placed on their records. These individuals will be unable to register, to receive transcripts, grades or their diploma. Once a hold is placed on a student's record all terms and conditions must be fulfilled before the hold is removed. Questions concerning loan holds should be directed to Terri Powell (firstname.lastname@example.org) at (740) 593-9930.
Ohio Attorney General Hold
Student accounts that have been turned over to the Ohio Attorney General's Office for collection will have a unique financial hold placed on their account. An Ohio Attorney General hold will prevent a student from being able to register for future terms in addition to obtaining academic records such as grades and transcripts. Additional information about accounts that have been placed at the Ohio Attorney General's Office can be found on the University Collections page.
Other Account Restrictive Holds
Additional account restrictive holds may be placed on a student account by other administrative offices outside of the Office of the Bursar. If there is a hold on your student account, please review the Holds section of your My OHIO Student Center for details and contact information.
