Billing, Payment and Refunds


All billing for currently enrolled students is processed electronically through eBill. eBill statements are processed on the 5th of each month for students who have current activity resulting in an account balance or credit. Students are sent an email to their ONID email account when their statement is ready to view and can then view their eBill statement online at

Student account late fee

Unpaid balances of more than $500.00 as of the 1st of the month following the first eBill statement of the term are considered past due, and will be assessed a late fee of $85.00. Students are financially responsible for all courses for which they register. Students are responsible for paying fees by the deadline even if they do not receive a bill. Students enrolled in a payment plan and current on their installment payments will be exempt from the Student Account Late Fee.

Refunds and late registration fees


You are financially responsible for all courses for which you register. If you drop a class after the term begins, you may receive a partial refund of your tuition and fees. For your possible tuition refund when dropping or withdrawing from a class, please refer to the academic calendar and the drop/withdraw refunds schedule.

Requesting a refund

If you feel that you have a legitimate, documented reason to petition for a refund of Ecampus tuition and fees, contact the Ecampus student services at 800-667-1465 (option 1) or via email for instructions and assistance with this formal process.

Requests for refunds for all courses must be in writing. Refunds are granted in accordance with OSU Academic Regulations 11 and 12. Refunds are based on assessed tuition, course fees and mandatory fees, and are calculated from the date you officially drop, withdraw or cancel your registration or reduce your class load, not the last date of class attendance. Read more about withdrawing for the term.

Refund processing

Refunds will be processed as a credit on your account. A check will be issued to you for any remaining credit balance after accounts receivable and financial aid repayments have been satisfied. Allow about two weeks for processing a refund. Your refund will be sent to your current mailing address. Be sure to update your current mailing address online in Beaver Hub.

For more information about your refund or refund check, please contact Ecampus student services at 800-667-1465 (option 1) or via email.

Late registration fees

Late registration fees – $50 and $100

A late registration fee of $50 will be assessed for all initial registrations during the first two weeks of classes. Initial registration after the second week of classes will be assessed a late fee of $100. Students may request a one-time exception if the late registration was due to circumstances beyond their control.

Registration change – $20 per course added

You will be charged a $20 fee to add classes after Week 2 of the term. There is no charge to change registration during the add/drop period: add, drop, withdraw from a course, change credits, change grade option or change to audit. The course fee to audit a course is the same as regular fees in all classes. Please note that late registration fees still apply.
