Fall 2015 charges have been assessed and can be viewed on your bursar account. This is not your bill. The first Fall e-bill will be available on 8/20/2015 and the due date will be 9/10/2015.

The Bursar's Office will begin ordering Fall 2015 refunds on 8.14.15. If you have set up direct deposit, the funds should be in your personal bank 2-3 business days after your refund is ordered. Paper checks will take 7-10 business days.

Fall 2015 Students can charge their books

Students wishing to charge up to $650.00 of their school books to their bursar accounts can do so if they register before August 29th. On the "Optional Fees" page, click on the Book Allowance fee button. This will add the $650.00  book allowance charge to your bursar account. The campus bookstore will begin processing web orders on 8/3/2015 and in-person orders on 8/17/2015. They will continue processing orders through 9/4/2015. After Labor Day when the Bursar's Office receives the charge file from Barnes & Noble, the $650.00 fee will be waived and your actual charge amount will be posted to your bursar account.

If you plan to use excess financial aid to pay your book charge, you must have a Title lV Authorization on file on your One.IU account.

  • Go to One.IU and log in
  • Go to:Services & Information>Student Authorizations>Grant Authorizations>South Bend Campus>Title lV Authorization
  • Read the Authorization
  • Select Next
  • Click on the box stating that you have read the Authorization
  • Click Submit

If you choose the book allowance fee, but your total comes to more than $650.00, you must provide a credit/debit card number on the Barnes & Noble website. Your order will not be processed without it.


Welcome to IU South Bend's Office of the Bursar web site. The Office of the Bursar, located in the Administration Building, is responsible for the timely dissemination of accurate information relating to a student's bursar account. We interact daily with students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators as well as with outside agencies. It is our goal to provide outstanding customer service while maintaining a high level of integrity, honesty and professional ethics.

The Office of the Bursar also acts as a clearing house for student charges and credits, in addition to processing payments, credits, charges and refunds. This office monitors student accounts and generates monthly electronic bills (e-bills).

Attention New IU South Bend Students

IU South Bend must comply with federal regulations for disbursement of Title IV financial aid (Stafford Loan, Pell Grant, Perkins Loan, Graduate PLUS Loan, Parent PLUS Loan, etc.). Without a signed Authorization, Title IV aid can be applied only to certain charges(tuition, mandatory fee, course-related fees, program fees, contracted housing charge). With a signed Authorization, Title IV aid can be applied to all IU charges (Health Center charges, parking permits, library fines, optional fees, etc). Even with a signed Authorization, current academic year (fall and spring terms) Title IV aid cannot pay more than $200 of any prior year charges.

If you wish to sign an Authorization and ensure the most inclusive use of your federal aid, you may do so on One.IU Self-Service by following these steps:

  • Go to One.IU and login
  • Go to: Services & Information, Financial > Student Authorizations> Grant Authorizations > South Bend Campus - Title IV Authorization
  • Read the Authorization
  • Select Next.
  • Click on the box stating you have read the Authorization.
  • Click Submit

Even if you have no Title IV aid, we encourage you to review the Authorization and consider signing it now. You might need Title IV aid for the future semester and if you do, you will already have the Authorization in place - once you sign it, it stays in effect for your IU South Bend career unless you revoke it.

If you have a balance which becomes past due, it is subject to a monthly late fee and it may prevent you from registering for a future term until the balance is paid. In addition, your ability to obtain a transcript, verification of enrollment, or diploma is restricted while your account is encumbered. Please remember to check your monthly e-bill in One.IU and pay any balance owed by the due date to prevent late fees from accruing and your IU services being stopped.
