New Online Tuition Payment Website
To better serve students and their families, Oregon State University has combined its two online tuition and fee payment websites into one site. All online tuition and fee payments can now be made through OSU's MyBill portal, eliminating the need for separate websites for credit card and electronic check (e-check) payments. Please note: This change means an update to the credit card service fee.
Like most universities, OSU charges a fee for payment by credit card to cover costs charged to OSU by financial institutions. These fees are typically 2-3%. OSU will charge students only 1%.
OSU is changing the fee charged for making tuition and fee payments by credit card from a current $35 fee per transaction to a fee of 1% of the payment being made. For example, if a $1,000 payment on a student's account is made by credit card, a $10 fee will be applied; and if a $4,000 payment is made, a $40 fee will be assessed. The minimum fee that will be charged is $3.
Online e-check payments remain free of charge.
How to Pay Online
Go to myBill; or myOSU and select the "Paying for College" tab.
Please note that credit card payments for tuition are currently only accepted online, not in person or by phone, to keep costs low. Cash and checks are accepted in person at the Cashier's Office in the lobby of the Kerr Administration Building; or checks may be mailed to: OSU Cashiers Office, P.O. Box 1086, Corvallis, OR 97339.
Student Financial Services Agreement
The student will now be required to complete a student financial services agreement when they log in to myBill. This document constitutes a legal agreement between the student and Oregon State University. In addition, the agreement addresses the financial obligation of registering for classes and the debt incurred as a result. Upon registering for or receiving services from the University, Student agrees to accept full responsibility to pay tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of the Student's registration or receipt of services. The Student understands and agrees registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes an obligation to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date. Student and University agree the services provided by University and the payments for those services by Student constitute sufficient and valid consideration for the Contract.

All billing for currently enrolled students is processed electronically through eBill. eBill statements are processed on the 5th of each month for students who have current activity resulting in an account balance or credit. Students are sent an email to their ONID email account when their statement is ready to view and can then view their eBill statement online at http://mybill.oregonstate.edu.
Unpaid balances as of the 1st of the month following the eBill statement are considered past due, and will be assessed interest at the rate of 1% per month (12% APR). Students are financially responsible for all courses for which they register. Students are responsible for paying fees by the deadline even if they do not receive a bill.

Financial Aid Refunds
Students are eligible to receive a financial aid refund when their financial aid/scholarships exceed the allowable charges their student account. We say allowable charges because federal financial aid funds are restricted in what they can cover. Federal financial aid can only be applied directly to what are termed as "institutional charges". This includes items such as tuition/fees and on campus housing charges. Other items such as parking permits, printing charges etc. cannot be paid directly by federal financial aid funds. Even if a student receives a financial aid refund they should still be checking their student account and monthly eBill statements as they still may owe a balance on their student account.
Receiving Your Refund:
Students who have enrolled in Direct Deposit, and are eligible for a refund, will receive their refund electronically on the first day of the term during fall, winter, and spring. If students are not enrolled in direct deposit, a paper check will be mailed on the first day of fall, winter, and spring terms to their current mailing address. During summer term, Financial Aid will not be released until July 1st.
Direct Deposit: The preferred method of refund processing is electronically by direct deposit. Direct deposit is the electronic transfer of funds into a checking or savings account. It is the safest and most efficient way to receive a refund.
After enrolling in direct deposit, students must update their direct deposit enrollment information whenever their banking information changes.
Students can sign up for Direct Deposit online through MyOSU or download the Direct Deposit Authorization Form to be returned to the Financial Aid Office or the Cashiers Office. For more help, view the tutorial.
Paper Check: If not enrolled in direct deposit, a check is mailed to the student's Current Mailing address. This address can be changed at MyOSU.
