The Office of the Bursar welcomes you and your student to IU Southeast. We know that paying the tuition bill can be a daunting experience, so we are here to assist you.
An official university bill will be mailed the week of about 4 weeks before the start of the semester. When your student receives the bill, he/she will be eligible for a personal deferment option. The deferment option will allow you or the student to make up to 4 installment payments due throughout the semester. The cost to do this is $15 per deferment for a total of $45 for the semester.
Below is a list of tips for making the payment process as smooth as possible:
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), when a student turns 18 years of age or attends a post-secondary institution, the student, and not the parent, may access, seek to amend, and consent to disclosures of his or her education records. Students who wish to authorize access to their confidential student record information may use the Third Party Access feature available in Self Service. In rare circumstances, the University may invoke the FERPA exception, which allows the institution to provide information to parents if the parent can prove their student is dependent by IRS standards. This includes data stored by the Office of the Bursar including details regarding a student’s bursar bill. We can always discuss account information with the student or with a combination of a student and parent. We are unable to give out detailed information on a student’s bursar bill without the student being present.
For more information regarding FERPA, please visit the Office of the Registrar.
