Summer 2013 Information

Summer 2013  

Summer Discounted Fees Announced

Last year, IU unveiled a plan to significantly reduce undergraduate tuition for 2012-2013 summer semester students in order to provide financial relief to students, promote year-round college attendance, and decrease the time it takes many students to earn a degree.

This summer, all undergraduates enrolled at any of the seven IU campuses statewide, including IUN, will receive a 25 percent discount for summer courses.  The discounted fees are available by clicking the link below:

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 bursar 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 bursar account each month your balance remains past due.

Note: All fees and dates are subject to change without notice.

Withdrawal Info  

No Automatic Cancellation of Class (Wash-Out)

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 2013. The 100% refund period for most Summer I session classes ends at 5:00 p.m. on May 17 in person at the Office of the Registrar or 9 p.m. on May 18 from any network computer. The 100% refund period for most Summer 2 classes ends at 5:00 p.m. on July 5 in person at the Office of the Registrar or July 6 at 9 p.m. from any network computer. 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 2013.

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 2013 to register early for one or both summer sessions. The Office of the Bursar expects to begin processing refunds of excess financial aid on May 6. 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. June 25 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 bursar account as usable credits. The amount of Anticipated Aid may change before it becomes “real” and passes to your bursar account as usable credits. Anticipated Aid will either change to a "real" award and pass to your bursar account as usable credits or be removed from your account on the date shown on your bursar account (30 days after it first appears as Anticipated Aid). Anticipated Aid does not reduce the amount of your outstanding bursar 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 bursar account as a “real” award.  

Please check your bursar account and financial aid activity via OneStart. Through OneStart you will see your bursar account and aid activity as it happens.  Both types of financial aid awards can be viewed on-line in real-time.  You also will be able to see details that explain reasons why your aid may not have passed to your bursar account and what you can or should do about it.

Check Status Online and Third Party Access  

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 QuikPay (QP) on our website for details about using QuikPay for bursar information.

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 QP and print copies as needed. You may elect to pay via QP, but you may also print a statement and mail it with your check to our payment processing address.

Third Party Access

Third party access is a OneStart role that, as a student, you can assign to any person(s), such as a parent or guardian, to whom you wish to grant access to your personal information available through the "Self-Service" tab in OneStart. You can assign third party access to as many persons as you wish, for example, both of your parents. Note: Third party access is read only for all information. You can allow third party access to holds on your record, grades, unofficial transcript, class schedule, final exam schedule, bursar account summary, financial aid awards and summary, and your personal info and to do list. You select and chose what access the third-party will be able to view and you are in control of deleting or changing the access as well.

Personal Deferment Option

The Personal Deferment Option (Payment Plan) is now 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 or three payments spread out across the semester. The number of payments available to you will depend on when you register for classes.

The first e-bill of summer (April) will offer the three-pay plan and indicate the minimum amount due if the deferment plan is desired. The May e-bill will offer the two-pay plan and indicate the minimum amount due if this plan is elected. If the student pays the minimum amount offered on the May e-bill, the final e-bill in June will reflect the balance due in full. If you register after the June 18 for Summer 2, the full balance for Summer 2 will be due on August 6. There will be a minimum charge of $15.00 for each monthly installment.

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 the Bursar (Hawthorn Hall 102) or by using the Indiana University's on-line payment services.
  • 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 Bursar 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.
Parking  

Parking Permits

Summer parking permits will be mailed to students who register for either session by May 10, 2013 and request parking during the registration process. For students who do not select parking when registering or who registered after that date, parking permits can be purchased and picked up starting May 13, 2013 at the Office of the Bursar and Parking Services, Hawthorn 102. It is important that students pick up parking permits before the end of the first week for Summer 1 or Summer 2 to avoid ticketing. If you register for both sessions, only one permit is required, it will be valid for each session.  Ticketing is only waived during the first week of each session and only if the student is parked in student parking areas.

If you forget your permit at home or in your other car - purchase a $2 one day temporary permit from either the Office of the Bursar and Parking Services (Hawthorn, Room 102) or at one of the two parking permit kiosks on campus. One kiosks is located in lot 2 and the other is in front of the Library Conference Center.
