IU Email is an Official Means of Communications
The university reserves the right to send official communications to students by email with the full expectation that students will receive and read these messages in a timely fashion. Official university email accounts are available for all registered students. Official university communications will be sent to students' official university email addresses. For the official email addresses for all Indiana University campuses, see the Knowledge Base document Email at each IU campus.
Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with university-related communications. In addition to their university email account, students should also check for course-related email within Oncourse. The IU Network ID provides access to Oncourse and the university email systems. For more information about Oncourse mail, see the Knowledge Base document in Oncourse, What is Course Mail?
Students who choose to have their email forwarded from their official university email address to a private address (e.g.,AOL., Hotmail, or a departmental server) do so at their own risk. The university is not responsible for any difficulties that may occur in the transmission of or access to email forwarded to any other address. Any such problems will not absolve students of their responsibility to know and comply with the content of official communications sent to their official IU email addresses. However, students will not be held responsible for an interruption of service to their official email addresses due to system-related problems (e.g. power outages, email viruses). For instructions to set up, change, or cancel email forwarding, see the Knowledge Base document at IU, How do I forward my email?
Fees for Spring 2014 will be assessed after December 13, 2013. Until that time, you will not see spring charges noted on your bursar account.
Students who register after Sunday, January 12, 2014 will be assessed a late registration fee (one time only) and a late schedule change fee (per class).
Indiana University generates electronic bills for bursar account activity. Students receive an email notification to their IU South Bend email address when the monthly bill is available on the web. In addition any authorized payer, once access has been created by the student, has the option of receiving these billing notifications.
Electronic billing does not involve a change in your payment options. You are not required to pay your bill on-line. By using the "Printable Statement (PDF)" you may print a bill to mail with your check payment to the payment processing address noted on the statement. You may also choose to pay electronically via IU Bursar Pay.
Please refer to the section about IU Bursar Pay on the Office of the Bursar website, http://www.iusb.edu/bursar/ about using IU Bursar Pay.
Fee Payment Information
IU South Bend advanced to all-electronic billing beginning Fall 2006. This means you no longer receive a paper bill in the mail. You will need to view/print your bill online through IU Bursar Pay. You will receive an email to notify you of a new bill when it is available online.
University policy requires timely payment for all charges owed to Indiana University, including but not necessarily limited to tuition, fees, library fines, and parking fines. Failure to make payments on time may subject you to additional charges. Any payment due the University that is not received by the due date is subject to a late payment fee. 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.
Credit card or debit card payments are no longer accepted by phone or in the Cashiers' Office. These can be processed online through IU Bursar Pay .
Payments may be made via the web through IU Bursar Pay at https://onestart.iu.edu for students and for authorized payers. Statements may also be printed from this location and used for mailing with your payment by check. Refer to "Paying on Your Account" on the Office of the Bursar website (http://www.iusb.edu/bursar/) for details.
A late payment fee of 1.5% of your unpaid balance may be assessed to the accounts of all students whose payments are not received in the Office of the Bursar by the due date.
If you have not received an email notification of the bill by your bill availability date noted below, please use IU Bursar Pay in OneStart, https://onestart.iu.edu to determine your balance due. Failure to receive the email notification of a bill will not be accepted as a reason for missing any payment deadline.
Failure to pay does not withdraw you from all classes. Should you decide not to attend the South Bend campus this term, you must officially withdraw from all your classes via OneStart prior to January 18, 2014. There is no automatic cancellation of your registration for nonpayment. If you do not officially withdraw, you risk receiving grades of F in your courses. If you do not take action you will remain registered in your classes and you will be responsible for all course fees, plus any applicable late fees, through the time you complete a total withdrawal. You will owe all or a portion of the fees if your withdrawal is processed after the 100% refund period.
Please note that the bursar payments made late in the term will be time- stamped with the following term's information, even though they will be paying the current term's charges.

The Office of the Bursar is responsible for the collection of University financial obligations. An account that is past due is encumbered by the Office of the Bursar. The Student Loan Administration may also encumber the accounts of students or former students who have not satisfied their obligations to that department. A student whose account is encumbered will be denied certain University services (e.g. registration, academic transcripts, enrollment verification, diploma, financial aid). Payment agreements with the Office of the Bursar will not clear a student to register.
For our standard deferment payment plan, click on "Payment Plan Options" link on the bursar homepage. There is no enrollment process for this. Just pay the "Deferment Amount" indicated on your e-bill. A nominal deferment charge will be added to your next bill. All term charges need to be paid before you will be able to register for a future semester.
A late payment fee may be assessed to the accounts of all students whose payments are not received in the Office of the Bursar by 4:00 PM of the due date noted on your e-bill.
If you have not received an email notification of the bill 7 days prior to the due date noted above in accordance with your registration date, please use IU Bursar Pay to View/Pay Bursar Bill under the Financial section on the Self-Service tab in OneStart, http://onestart.iu.edu/ to determine your balance due. Failure to receive the email notification of a bill will not be accepted as a reason for missing any payment deadline.
It is University policy that all current term charges must be paid in full before bursar clearance will be granted to register for a future semester. Remember to mail your payment at least one week before the due date to ensure that it is posted to your bursar account by the due date. Excess financial aid for a future term CANNOT be used to pay outstanding current term charges.
If you wish to advance register and are making an online payment, be sure to complete your payment at least two days before your registration to ensure that the bursar encumbrance has been removed from your account. Payment agreements with the Office of the Bursar will not clear a student to register.
Financial Aid/Anticipated Aid
Your account has been noted with your anticipated financial aid for Spring 2014. Anticipated aid awards are deducted from the term charges on your statement. The Total Due represents the amount you are expected to pay by the due date.
NOTE: Anticipated awards are subject to change. If, for any reason, your actual awards cannot be credited to your bursar account, the anticipated awards will be removed and you will be responsible for paying the balance.
Please be aware that anticipated awards are notations for information only. We reduce your bill by the anticipated aid as a courtesy to show the amount you are expected to pay by the due date. Anticipated awards do NOT actually reduce the balance on your account.
You can get up-to-date information on your financial aid awards by checking OneStart at http://onestart.iu.edu. Choose the "Financial Aid" tab under Finances in your personal Student Center account. You can also contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance by email through their website at http://www.iusb.edu/finaid/
