Payment Methods

  • The university will no longer issue paper bills beginning Summer 2008. With this new electronic billing system, students will need to check their IUP e-mail often, and it is highly recommended that students authorize parents/guardians to view and pay bills through the IUP EasyPay system accessed through the university’s website.

    Once you receive any e-mail stating your bill is available, you may log into IUP EasyPay to review your statement and pay your bill.

    Methods for paying student bills are as follows:

    1. IUP EasyPay: In an effort to deliver services to its students more efficiently, IUP has implemented online payment services, IUP-EasyPay, accessible for authorized users from the Bursar’s page and through MyIUP for students. These online payment services, via the IUP EasyPay system, offer students and authorized users (parent and/or guardian) the flexibility and convenience to view and pay their bills 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Payments can be made by electronic check payments (e-checks) or credit cards.
      • E-checks may be made online through IUP EasyPay for no additional fee by simply entering your account and routing numbers.
      • Credit card payments are accepted with the following cards: Visa, American Express, Discover, or MasterCard. There is a 2.75 percent convenience fee assessed to all credit card payments.
      • Please verify the amount you are paying, as we cannot refund a payment made in error.
      • View instructions on how to use IUP EasyPay or frequently asked questions about the EasyPay process.
    2. In the Bursar’s office: Regular check payments or money orders and cash are also accepted in person.
    3. Depository: Rather than waiting in line, you may drop off your payment in the depository located outside the front entrance to Clark Hall. Be sure to include your Banner ID number on your payment.
    4. Mail: Checks are also accepted through the mail. Please include your Banner ID number on your payment. All payments can be mailed to: Office of the Bursar, Clark Hall, 1090 South Drive, Indiana, PA 15705.

    Payment Options

    Full Payment

    To pay in full, you can pay the entire amount as indicated under “amount due” on the billing statement.

    Installment Payment Plan

    This plan allows students to pay their semester school fees by making monthly payments. The IPP is also available during summer sessions. A one-time, per-term, nonrefundable fee of $40 is charged to cover administrative expenses. You can choose your IPP online through IUP EasyPay.

    Through EasyPay you may also choose to have your payments scheduled and deducted from an account of choice. If you choose scheduled payments, you will not need to log in each month and manually make your payment. They will be deducted on the due date each month from the payment method you select.

    For any student not paying the full amount due on his or her billing statement and who has not signed up through the IUP EasyPay, the Office of the Bursar will assume the student has chosen the IPP and will automatically enroll them. If you are paying less than the full amount because you have an approved deduction that is not listed on the billing statement, please contact Financial Aid at 724-357-2218 or the Office of the Bursar at 724-357-2207 to clarify aid concerns.

    The following IPP options are available:

    • Monthly semester option: A three-payment plan is available for those who are registered by July 28. Pay one-third of your balance by the due date of your bill. Payments are due on the 20th of each month. A statement will be on line each month, indicating the amount due. A nonrefundable, one-time fee is charged for enrollment in this plan.
    • Summer monthly semester option: The first billing available in April will offer a two-payment option. Subsequent bills will be available in May and June. A nonrefundable, one-time fee is charged for enrollment in this plan.

    Note: If you have enrolled in a payment plan and schedule your installments, the system will process your monthly payment for you. There is no need for you to manually process the payment. Please be extremely careful when making any payments for which you are not making a full payment rather than an installment payment.

    A late payment fee of $30 will be assessed on each monthly payment received five days after the due date, with a maximum of $100 per semester. Your financial aid cannot replace your installment payment unless it covers your IPP account in full.

    If a student receives financial aid that will reduce or pay off the IPP, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the Office of the Bursar in Clark Hall and provide a copy of proof of aid.

    The Bursar’s office reserves the right to place a financial hold on any student’s account with no payments or an outstanding balance on the account. All balances need to be paid in full before the end of the semester. The financial hold prevents students from registering, viewing semester grades, and requesting transcripts.
