Spring 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 when they register. On the Optional Fees page, click on the Book Allowance fee button. This will add the $650.00 of book allowance fee to your bursar account. In late January, when the Bursar's Office receives the charge file from the campus Barnes & Noble Bookstore, 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 OneStart account.
- Go to OneStart 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.
The Bookstore will begin processing web orders on 12.22.14 and in-store orders on 1.2.15. The last day to select the optional book allowance fee is 1.21.15, and at that point must be manually done (if your're already registered but didn't choose it) at the Bursar's Office. See either one of the cashiers. The last day to charge books at the campus bookstore is 1.22.15.
Spring 2015 charges will appear on student bursar accounts beginning 12.05.14. Your first Spring e-bill will be available on your OneStart account on 12.18.14.
The Financial Aid Office will begin processing spring aid to student accounts on 01.02.15 and the Bursar Office will begin spring refunding after 01.02.15.
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 OneStart Self-Service by following these steps:
- Go to OneStart 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 for Spring 2014, 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 OneStart and pay any balance owed by the due date to prevent late fees from accruing and your IU services being stopped.
