Because paying in person may involve waiting in line, students are encouraged to pay on-line using credit card, check or saving account, by mail, or by using the drop box. Mailing your payment at least five business days prior to the due date will help ensure receipt of payment by the due date.
NOTE: A convenience fee/service charge will be assessed for using your credit card. To learn more, click the following link: Credit Card Convenience Fee

The Personal Deferment Option (PDO) is available to students whose bursar accounts are in good standing. PDO allows current term charges to be paid in multiple installments, depending on when you register for classes. If you are eligible, a Deferment Amount will be indicated on your bill. Most tuition and fees are eligible for the deferment option, however repayments of short term loans and refunds are due in full.
To use the PDO:
Bursar bills are due on the 10th of each month. Below is a list of due dates* and approximate deferment percentages by term.
|FALL TERM||SPRING TERM||SUMMER TERM|
|September||January||May||defer 75% of current term charges for a $15 deferment fee|
|October||February||June||defer 66% of current term charges for a $15 deferment fee|
|November||March||July||defer 50% of current term charges for a $15 deferment fee|
|December||April||August||balance due in full|
All dates* are subject to change. Refer to the Due Date noted on each bursar bill for the payment deadline.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Sponsored students are those for whom an agency outside the university is paying student fees. This usually is an employer but includes government agencies, Vocational Rehabilitation, Military branches, foreign governments, Trusts and other such funding sources.

A qualified tuition program (or 529 Plan) is a program set up to allow either prepayments or contributions to an account established for paying a student's qualified education expenses at an eligible educational institution. (IRS Publication 970.)
These plans are designed to help parents set aside money for their children's college. Almost every state and many financial and educational institutions have 529 Plans. Contact your state's Department of Higher Education to learn more.
The account owner has four options for making/requesting payment:
The first three options allow for payment to be made to the account owner, the beneficiary or the school. The fourth option only allows payment to the account owner, unless a prior payment has been made to the school. Once the request has been made, it takes approximately 15 days to receive the check.
Please make sure the student's name and 10-digit University ID number is included in the memo section of the check. Checks should be mailed to:IUPUI Lockbox
Other 529 plan payments require specific information from the University. Please contact your plan’s administrator for specific requirements and additional information.
Mail-In your check or Money Order Payments
If you wish to mail in the payment you must print a PDF version of your bill and mail it along with your check payment to:IUPUI Lockbox
Cash, Personal Check or Traveler's Check Payments
Upon the return by the bank of any nonnegotiable check or electronic payment, your account will be assessed a nonrefundable service charge. Nonnegotiable payments for fees may cause termination of enrollment in addition to the service charge.
The current service charge is $27.50 or 5% of payment value, whichever is greater, but not to exceed $250. The return by the bank of two or more nonnegotiable items will restrict the ability to pay with checks in the future.
University policy requires timely payment for all charges owed to Indiana University, including but not limited to, tuition and fees, room, meals, parking, library fines and any other departmental or college costs. Failure to make payments on time will subject you to an additional charge. Any payment due by you to the University that is not received by the due date is subject to a monthly late payment charge of 1.5% of the past due balance, with a $2.00 minimum.
In addition to monthly late fees the University reserves to the right to restrict services such as future registration, transcripts, diploma and other certifications until such time as your account is paid in full. Indiana University may refer your past due account for collection, report your delinquency to the credit bureau system, and may authorize legal action against you for the collection of this debt.
Timely payment of your account with approved financial aid, personal check (unless restricted), credit card or cash will ensure that you avoid the late fee assessment and keep your account in good standing.
