Business Office


The Business Office has just been made aware that there is an issue preventing students from paying their student bills online via e-check. We are working on this and will hopefully find a solution soon, however, for the time being, you cannot pay your student bill online via e-check. Please note that credit card payments online are not affected by this issue, so you may still pay online with a credit card. You may also mail in your payment, or come in to the Reardon One Stop in Florence Evans Hall and pay in person.

Hello Students. The first Summer Refund checks will be mailed June 26, 2014 for most students who are registered to start summer I. Students cannot pick up their checks from the university. If you are a resident student living on campus AND you have a university post box, your check will be placed in your campus mail box. Commuter students with a campus box will have their checks mailed to their permanent address on file. Please contact the financial aid office 740-245-7218 for questions regarding financial aid, or the Business office  740-245-7226 for questions about your charges. As a reminder, if you have an outside organization paying for your education costs, please have your authorizations in to the Business office by the first week of summer classes.

When you register for classes, please check your student space account within 48 hours to assure accuracy. All account balances are due the week prior to the start of the semester. For any unpaid balance there is a late fee assessed each month. It is your responsibility to check your account. If there are any questions or concerns please contact the Business Office. Our hours of operation for the Summer are Mon-Thurs, 8 am - 5:30 pm.

You will need to check your student space account weekly for any updates or changes. Do not wait on a paper bill to pay your account. If you cannot pay in full we have a payment plan available for the current semester. Any unpaid balances at the end of each semester will be subject to collections. 

Important Notice! Any student bills not paid in full by the first day of class will be assessed a late fee of 1.5%. You may make payments in person in the business office, through the mail by check, over the phone by credit card, or online through student space. You can also avoid this fee by signing up for our monthly installment payment plan. Forms can be obtained under the resources tab to the right.
