One Term – Two Sessions
The summer term will consist of one term – Summer 2018 – with two sessions – Summer I session and Summer II session. Classes begin on May 14, 2018 for Summer I session and June 25, 2018 for Summer II session. Any inquiries concerning your IU Northwest fee assessment should be directed to our office. In order to insure the security and privacy of our students account information will not be released over phone. Students may access their Student Account information by visiting One.IU at one.iu.edu and searching for "IU Bursar Pay" or by visiting our office.

Late Payment Fees
Late payment fees will be assessed if at least the minimum amount shown on your bill is not paid by the monthly due dates above. If you have not paid at least the minimum amount due on your student account by the due date, your account will be past due and you will be ineligible to receive university services (i.e., transcripts, enrollment verifications, process initial enrollment / registration) for future terms. Late Payment Fee equal to 1.5% of your account balance will be assessed to your student account each month your balance remains past due.
Note: All fees and dates are subject to change without notice.
No Automatic Cancellation of Class
An automatic cancellation of classes (wash-out) for nonpayment will not be done. If you do not plan to attend or do not want to be financially responsible for your classes, you must withdraw prior to the end of the 100% refund period for Summer 2018. The 100% refund period for most Summer I session classes ends at 5:00 p.m. on May 18, 2018 in person at the Office of the Registrar or 9 p.m. on May 20, 2018 from any network computer. The 100% refund period for most Summer 2 classes ends at 5:00 p.m. on June 29 in person at the Office of the Registrar or 9 p.m. from any network computer by July 1. If you do not withdraw during the 100% refund period, you will be responsible for all tuition and fees incurred.
Important Note For Financial Aid Recipients
Financial Aid will be packaged based on actual enrolled hours for the summer. Students who expect to use financial aid to pay summer fees should register early for all classes in order for aid to be processed in time for their bill due date.
If you choose to wait to register, you could be subject to a late registration fee, your classes could be full, and most importantly, it will significantly delay your financial aid. Please refer to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website regarding your Summer 2018.
Refunding Excess Financial Aid
The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will not begin packaging student awards until after the student registers for classes. Therefore, it is important for students expecting aid for Summer to register early for one or both summer sessions. The Office of Student Accounts expects to begin processing refunds of excess financial aid on May 2018. Refunds will be processed for those students who either meet the eligibility criteria by registering in only the Summer I session or by registering in both the Summer I session and the Summer II session. July 2018 will be the 1st refund date for those students who meet the eligibility criteria by registering in only the Summer II session.
Anticipated Financial Aid
The Financial Aid Office processes awards under one of two general conditions. “Real” awards that can immediately be applied to your account, and Anticipated Aid, expected awards that are under review because the conditions have not yet been met to qualify for their passing to your student account as usable credits. The amount of Anticipated Aid may change before it becomes “real” and passes to your student account as usable credits. Anticipated Aid will either change to a "real" award and pass to your student account as usable credits or be removed from your account on the date shown on your student account (30 days after it first appears as Anticipated Aid). Anticipated Aid does not reduce the amount of your outstanding student account balance and cannot be figured into the amount to be refunded. Only “real” awards can pay tuition and fees and create a refundable credit. Bank loans will not appear as Anticipated Aid. They will only appear on your student account as a “real” award.
Note: All fees and dates are subject to change without notice.
Check Your Bursar Account Status Online
Paper bills are not generated for currently enrolled students. All students will receive an email when the monthly e-bill is available on the web. In addition any authorized payer created by the student has the option of receiving these bill notifications.
Please refer to the section about the Payment Options on our website for details about how to setup a 3rd Party User and making payments on your Student Account.
Note: The move to electronic billing does not mean a change in your payment options! You are not required to pay your bill on-line. You will be able to see your statement history through IU Bursar Pay and print copies as needed. You may elect to pay via IU Bursar Pay, but you may also print a statement and mail it with your check to our payment processing address.
Personal Deferment Option
The Personal Deferment Option (Payment Plan) is offered for the Summer terms. If you prefer to pay your tuition and fees in installments instead of one lump sum, we offer several payment plans (personal deferments) to fit your needs. You can pay your bursar bill in two, three or four payments spread out across the semester. The number of payments available to you will depend on when you register for classes.
The first bill of summer (April) will offer the 4-pay plan and indicate the minimum amount due if the deferment plan is desired, the May bill will offer the 3-pay plan and June bill will offer the 2-pay plan. Each bill will ndicate the minimum amount due if this plan is elected. If the student pays the minimum amount offered on each bill, the final bill due in July will reflect the balance due in full. There will be a minimum charge of $15.00 for each monthly installment for a maximum charge of $45.00
There is no contract to sign but by remitting the first payment shown on your e-bill, you are agreeing to the following terms and guidelines:
Your current balance must be at least $450 in order to participate.
- Initial payment must be received by the payment due dates.
- Payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and Novus/Discover). You may pay in person at the Office of Student Accounts (Hawthorn Hall 109) or online at one.iu.edu.
- This option is available only to students who maintain a favorable credit history. If eligible, the minimum amount calculation will appear on the account statement.
- If you make schedule adjustments prior to the due date, the minimum amount must be recalculated by a Student Account Representative if you wish to participate in this plan.
- The payments will be due as billed for each plan. You may either pay an additional installment or pay your balance in full at each installment due date, with the balance due on the last payment due date for the semester. (the value of installments will be calculated and appear on the billing for eligible students.) Failure to make the minimum amount due by each installment due will forfeit the ability to make additional installments and your account will incur late fees.
- A payment received that is less than or greater than the required minimum payment will be treated as a personal deferment payment and the personal deferment plan will be invoked. The service charge will be applied to your account.
- The only way to reduce your total obligation is to officially withdraw from classes during the appropriate refund period.
- Any refunds resulting from dropped classes during the refund period will be credited to your outstanding personal deferment balance. Class withdrawal processed after the refund period will not result in a refund or reduction of your personal deferment balance. This means that the balance of your personal deferment will still be due and payment expected by the due date.
- Failure to make payment in full by the due date will result in the denial of university services and may result in the assessment of late payment fees.
