Bills are sent electronically approximately four weeks before the quarter opening date. Payment is due two weeks prior to the quarter opening date. Refer to the Office of the Bursar Web page (http://www.ohio.edu/bursar/) for all payment options. Electronic check (eCheck) payments can be made by accessing the student eAccount on the Office of the Bursar Web page. Fees can be paid by check or money order made payable to Ohio University. You may pay through the mail or in person at the Office of the Bursar in Chubb Hall if you are enrolling on the Athens campus, or at your regional campus student services office if you are enrolling on one of the regional campuses.

Credit card payments are accepted at regional campuses for regional campus students only. Credit card payments can also be made using CASHnet SMARTPAY system by logging into your eAccount. This is a service that allows you to pay your University charges on the Internet with a credit card. A service charge based on the transaction amount will be assessed.

You must pay your fees by the stated deadlines or risk a $100 late payment charge. Postdated checks are not accepted, and checks issued to the University and not paid upon presentation to the bank will cancel automatically any receipts given and result in the assessment of penalties.

Fees for tuition include the instructional fee and the general fee. This figure excludes academic course-related fees. The online quarterly Schedule of Classes identifies sections of courses that require additional fees.

This plan is not a loan program, and there is no interest charge on payments. For additional information visit the bursar’s Web site at http://www.ohio.edu/bursar/mpp.cfm.

 

Refund of Fees

  ^ TOP

University Refund Policy for Withdrawal. Ohio University refunds fees or credits your account 30 days after the date of withdrawal, according to the following schedule:

  1. If you withdraw officially from the University (cancellation of registration) before the first day of classes, you are entitled to a 100 percent refund of registration fees if your fees were paid in full.
  2. If you withdraw officially from the University during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter (see the academic calendar http://www.ohio.edu/registrar/calendar.cfm), you are entitled to an 80 percent refund if your registration fees were paid in full.
  3. If you withdraw from the University after the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, you are not entitled to a refund of registration fees.

If you withdraw from the University before full payment of fees is made, you are considered indebted to the University for the amount determined according to the refund regulations. A hold will be placed on your records until your debt is paid.

Refund Policy for Reducing Course Load. If you drop credit hours before or during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, you are entitled to receive a 100 percent refund of the reduction when such changes result in a reduction of fees. For example, if you are registered for 11 hours and drop a five–hour course, you will receive 100 percent of the difference in tuition for dropping from full–time to part–time. However, if you have 15 hours and drop to 11 hours, it does not affect the tuition, because the standard tuition rate applies to a course load of 11 through 20 hours. Course load reductions made after the 15th calendar day of the quarter will result in no refund. Corrected registration that results in increased hours could increase tuition. Further information regarding the refund of fees can be obtained from the Office of the Bursar.

Withdrawal Policy for Financial Aid Recipients

  ^ TOP

Title IV Funds. You are a Title IV financial aid recipient if you receive a Direct Loan (Subsidized, Unsubsidized, or PLUS), Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, Academic Competitiveness Grant, National SMART Grant, or TEACH Grant. If you receive Title IV financial aid and withdraw from Ohio University, the amount of aid earned and unearned will be calculated using the Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy. This policy is a formula that measures the percentage of days enrolled during a quarter. The percentage is determined by dividing the number of days enrolled by the number of calendar days in the quarter, including weekends and holidays. Based on this percentage, Title IV financial aid will be prorated to reflect the amount of aid that was earned during the period of enrollment. The amount of aid that is earned will remain on your student account and the amount of aid that is unearned will be returned to the appropriate program. Once the attendance percentage reaches 60 percent, all Title IV financial aid is considered to be earned.

If it is determined that Title IV funds need to be returned, by Federal Law they will be returned in the following order: Unsubsidized Direct Loans, Subsidized Direct Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal PLUS Loans, Pell Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant, National SMART Grant, Federal SEOG, Federal TEACH Grant, and other Title IV assistance.

State and Institutional Grants. If you receive financial aid that consists of state or University grant funds, they are subject to the University Refund Policy. If you withdraw officially during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 80 percent of the grant funds will be returned to the appropriate program. After the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 100 percent of the grant funds will remain on your student account.

Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships. If you receive financial aid that consists of undergraduate or graduate scholarships, they are subject to a special University policy. If you withdraw officially during the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 100 percent of the scholarship funds will be returned to the appropriate program. After the first 15 calendar days of the quarter, 100 percent of the scholarship funds will remain on your student account.

Unofficial Withdrawals. If you stop attending the University and do not officially withdraw, it is considered to be an unofficial withdrawal and will be subject to the above Withdrawal Policies. The date of withdrawal will be the latest date based on a student’s attendance at an academically related event. If the last date of attendance is not known, the midpoint of the quarter will be used as the withdrawal date. If you never attend all of the courses you have registered for, you are considered to be an unofficial withdrawal. It is determined that you have not earned any financial aid. Therefore, all aid will be returned to the appropriate program.

If you are receiving financial aid, a change in your enrollment status or your withdrawal from the University could result in your having to repay programs from which you received financial assistance. In addition, you may owe fees to the University after funds are returned to the financial aid programs.

A student is not eligible for a refund until all Federal Title IV programs and other grants and scholarships are reimbursed as required and all outstanding balances with the University have been cleared.
