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.
Bill Payment Information
The easiest method for payment is with an eCheck at http://mybill.oregonstate.edu.

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.
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.
For more information, please see the Financial Aid Refund Policy.
A hold prevents students from accessing a university service such as registration or access to transcripts. An action is required by the student to have the hold released. There are many departments across campus that are able to apply a hold on certain services, and the OSU Student Account Services participates in that program. Holds will be placed on registration and transcripts if a student's OSU student account is past due or delinquent.
To View Holds: Log onto my.oregonstate.edu.
Any holds placed on your account will be visible on this screen. Contact information for the department issuing the hold will be listed next to the hold type. Please note: Not all holds placed on student records/registration originate from the Business Affairs Office.

Registration Hold (BR hold) Registration Restricted
OSU policy requires that currently enrolled students pay their account balances down to at least $500.00, and outstanding charges are from the current term before they can register for the next term. A registration hold generally exists because their student account exceeds $500.00.
If you have a BR registration hold, you need to pay the amount listed in the box on the same line as the BR hold or enter an OSU payment plan at mybill.oregonstate.edu. This is the amount necessary to be paid to meet the registration hold criteria and allow registration for a future term.
Students who are not registered for a term other than summer, must have their entire balance paid in full before they are able to register for subsequent terms.

ALL FORMER STUDENTS WHO HAVE UNPAID BALANCES WITH OSU

Currently Enrolled at Oregon State University
Students who elect to carry a balance on their OSU student account should note that their balance must be paid down to $500.00, and owing from the current term. Also, any unpaid past-due balance is subject to interest charges of 1% per month. In addition if a student owes from a prior term they are unable to access an official transcript until all of their prior term balances are paid.
Not Currently Enrolled at Oregon State University
For those who are not currently registered at Oregon State University the balance of your student account is due in full. If you are unable to pay your student account in full, the account goes into internal debt resolution and your account is billed a processing fee in addition to the monthly 1% interest charges. Both a transcript hold and registration hold will be placed on your student account. Student Account Services can work with you to make payment arrangements with you if you are unable to pay your account in full. However, if the arrangements are not kept or sufficient, escalated collection activity may continue.
Debt Resolution Process
If you are not registered for the current term by the end of week four and you have an unpaid balance, your account will be moved from current registered student status to a former registered student status. Your account will be moved to the Internal Debt Resolution process. Debt resolution accounts are subject to a one-time billing processing fee up to $60.00. In addition, accounts will be charged 1% interest assessed monthly on the unpaid balance.
The Debt Resolution Process is approximately 90 days in length. Notices regarding account status are sent via email and mailed letters to the current mailing address on file. You have the ability to enroll in an OSU Debt resolution payment plan to resolve the unpaid balances. At the end of the Debt resolution process, the account may be turned over to an outside collection agency for resolution and subject to an additional charge to service the account.
Debt Resolution payment plan options are found at mybill.oregonstate.edu.
