Online - Electronic Check

Pay your bill by electronic check

Paying your bill by electronic check (eCheck) is fast, easy, and free. To pay by eCheck you need two pieces of information: your account number and your U.S. bank’s nine-digit routing number.

On a paper check, your account number is found on the bottom of the check and can vary in length. Your account number is the number you use when you make a deposit into your account.

Your bank’s routing number is found to the left of the account number. If you do not have access to a paper check or you are paying from a savings account, ask your bank for its nine-digit routing number.

Still not sure? Do not worry. You can get the information you need with a quick call to your bank. Banks get these questions every day, and you will have your bill paid within minutes of making your call.

How to pay by eCheck

Once you have the information you need, follow the instructions below. If you need more help, check out these videos for students and third-party users (that is, someone paying on behalf of a student).

  1. Log into One.IU.
  2. The Account Summary page shows your payment options. To view your bill, choose “Statements.”
  3. On the Account Summary page, choose whether you want to pay your total due, a deferment amount if offered (enter the amount to pay), or other amount. Choose the corresponding “Pay” button to be taken to Higher One’s electronic payment system.
  4. For the payment method, choose “Enter new electronic check information.”
    • To make a one-time eCheck payment, enter your bank account information and choose “Continue Checkout.”
    • To use a stored payment profile, choose “My Account,” and then choose the profile you want to use under “Saved Accounts.”
  5. Make sure your payment information is accurate and then choose “Submit Payment.”
    • If you decide not to make the payment, choose “Cancel.”
    • If you need to change the amount, choose “Cancel” and then choose “Return to IU” at the top of the page. Select another payment amount and proceed to step 4.
    • If you need to edit eCheck information, choose “Edit” and make your changes.
  6. After you have submitted your payment, your receipt will be displayed. If you would like to email the receipt to yourself or someone else, choose “Email Another Receipt” and enter the email address.
  7. If you would like to print a receipt, choose “View Printable Receipt.”
  8. After you are finished, choose “Return to IU” to see your updated balance, or close your browser to log out.

Online - Credit or Debit Card

Pay your bill with a credit or debit card

You can pay your bill online with a credit or debit card, but be aware that you will be charged a nonrefundable service fee each time. To avoid paying a service charge, pay online by electronic check instead, or mail or bring a check to our office, University Center South, Room 103.

The service fee for online credit or debit card payment is collected by the online payment service, not by IU, so it won’t be posted to your student account. IU does not receive any part of the service fee and cannot waive it. You are responsible for paying the entire service fee.

You can avoid a service fee by paying online with an electronic check.

Still want to pay with your credit or debit card? Here is what you need to know:

  • You can pay with your credit or debit card online only. We do not accept credit or debit cards at our payment window.
  • If you pay by MasterCard, Discover, or American Express, one transaction will appear on your credit card statement for the total paid (student account payment plus service fee).
  • If you pay by VISA, two transactions will appear on your credit card statement (one for your student account payment and one for the service fee).
  • For tax purposes, keep your payment receipts. Do not rely on your credit card statements since they include the service charge.
  • We will refund an overpayment made by credit card to the credit card account. We will not refund any portion of the service fee.

How to pay by credit or debit card

  1. Log into One.IU.
  2. The Account Summary page shows your payment options. To view your bill, choose “Statements.”
  3. On the Account Summary page, choose whether you want to pay your total due, a deferment amount if offered (enter the amount to pay), or other amount. Choose the corresponding “Pay” button to be taken to Higher One’s electronic payment system.
  4. For the payment method, choose “Enter new credit card information.” The nonrefundable service charge will be displayed.
  5. To continue with your payment, check the box acknowledging that you understand and accept the nonrefundable service charge, then choose “Continue Checkout.” If you do not agree to the service fee, choose “Cancel My Transaction” instead.
  6. If you choose to continue with your payment, enter your card information, verify that it is correct, and then choose “Continue Checkout.” If you wish to save your card information for future payments, add a payment profile name such as “My Credit Card.”
  7. Make sure your payment information is accurate and then choose “Submit Payment.”
  8. After you have submitted your payment, your receipt will be displayed. If you would like to email the receipt to yourself or someone else, choose “Email Another Receipt” and enter the email address.
  9. If you would like to print a receipt, choose “View Printable Receipt.”
  10. After you are finished, choose “Return to IU” to see your updated balance, or close your browser to log out.

Personal Deferment

If eligible, your account statement will display a "Deferment Amount" which is the down payment necessary to elect a personal deferment contract. To elect the personal deferment option simply make the Deferment payment by the payment due date.

What do I know about personal deferments?

  • Available to all students enrolled in at least 3 credit hours and in good standing with the Office of the Bursar.
  • Splits your account balance into up to 4 installment payments.
  • $15 fee for each deferment payment
  • The deferment balance is calculated after all financial aid, scholarship, and sponsor authorizations have been applied.
  • Prior term fees and late fees are not included in the calculation and are due in full.

DROPS AFTER THE REFUND PERIOD WILL NOT RESULT IN ANY KIND OF REFUND OR REDUCTION TO YOUR PERSONAL DEFERMENT. THIS MEANS THAT THE BALANCE OF YOUR PERSONAL DEFERMENT WILL REMAIN DUE AND PAYABLE.

Failure to make payment in full by the personal deferment due date will result in a 1.5% late fee being assessed and denial of University services.

Foreign Currency & International Payment

If you’re an international student, you may pay your student account from your home country by using Flywire or GlobalPay for Students.

Flywire and GlobalPay for Students are simple and secure ways to make an electronic payment in your own currency. The exchange rate is competitive and there’s no transaction fee for students from Indiana University, though your bank may charge a fee.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Flywire and GlobalPay are more convenient and cost less than wires directly from your bank to Indiana University.
  • Follow all directions for whichever foreign currency payment processor you choose.
  • We’ll post the U.S. dollar equivalent to your student account, usually within five business days after your local bank transfers the money. Make sure you start the process in plenty of time before your bill is due.

IU Employee Tuition Benefits

What is the IU Tuition Benefit?

Employee or IU Retiree

The IU Tuition Benefit is a subsidy of covered tuition up to a benefit dollar maximum per semester based on the Indiana resident per-credit-hour rates at each campus, and in the case of some employees/retirees, on class standing (undergraduate, graduate, or professional). The actual benefit amount applied will be based on the number of credit hours per semester.

Spouse or Domestic Partner

The IU Tuition Benefit for a covered spouse or domestic partner is a subsidy of covered tuition up to a benefit dollar maximum per semester based on the Indiana resident per-credit-hour rates at each campus. The actual benefit amount applied will be based on the number of credit hours per semester.

Dependent Children

The IU Tuition Benefit value is a subsidy of 50% of the Indiana resident undergraduate rate, up to the completion of a bachelor’s degree or up to a maximum of 140 credit hours of IU Tuition Benefit awards as long as they meet the dependent child requirements as listed in the policy.

  • Tuition Benefit is not a cash award; rather, it is an employee benefit that pays a portion of the tuition credit-hour fees, and in some cases, audit fees.
  • Tuition Benefit for the dependent child does not apply to audit hours.
  • Tuition Benefit does not apply to special fees, such as those for music performance studies, student teaching, laboratories, early education experience, dissertation advanced research (G901, B798, G831, or equivalent), rental of special equipment or facilities, and fees for non-credit courses.
  • Tuition Benefit does not apply to mandatory student fees, such as student technology, activity, or athletic fees.
  • A Tuition Benefit application needs to be submitted each academic year.  Once eligibility is verified, the Tuition Benefit award is credited to the student's bursar account.
  • Tuition Benefit awards are reduced or canceled if the student or employee's eligibility ceases.
  • Any changes in the student's enrollment may also result in changes to the amount of Tuition Benefit. The Office of the Bursar will then bill the student for applicable fees.
  • ·         Tuition Benefit for graduate level courses as well as courses taken by Domestic Partners are treated as taxable income. In accordance with IRS regulations, these taxes will be withheld from the employee's pay. The employee's pay notice will include reference to the amount of Tuition Benefit included as taxable income.
  • Covered individuals are responsible for all tuition costs over the benefit maximums and excluded fees

Additional plan details and benefit amounts can be found on the IU Human Resources Tuition webpage.

Employer Deferment

You qualify for a Fee Reimbursing Employer Deferment if all or a part of your fees are to be reimbursed by a sponsoring agency or company, and reimbursement will not be made until the end of the semester when grades are turned in. Learn more about Fee Reimbursing Employer Deferments »
