How does billing work?

Guild funding will be reflected on your OSU student account by the end of the first week in each academic term. General questions about OSU billing can be directed to If you have additional questions about billing, please contact

How does billing work if I also have other forms of financial aid?

Financial Aid begins disbursement a week before the start of each academic term and Guild funding is reflected on your OSU student account by the end of the first week in each academic term, so your financial aid award will likely be applied to your student account bill first, except Veteran’s benefits. Your aid type has an impact on billing.

  • Student Loans – Guild funding support is applied to your OSU student account in the amount approved by your employer.  If this results in a negative balance on your OSU student account, you will receive a refund.  
  • Scholarships/Grants (Gift Aid) – After these funds are applied, if a balance remains, Guild funding support will be applied to your student account in the amount approved by your employer.  Students do not receive a refund if the amount of gift aid plus the Guild funding support exceeds the OSU student account balance. 
  • Veteran’s Benefits – Guild support is applied to your OSU student account.  If a balance remains, veteran’s benefits will be applied.
