How to Pay / eBill

All payments must be in U.S. currency. Remittance should be made payable to “Oakland University” and identified with the student name and the last four digits of the  Grizzly ID number. We do not accept payments over the phone.

Payments returned by the bank are considered nonpayment and may result in cancellation of registration. A $25 charge will be assessed for returned items.

Pay Online

Oakland University uses an electronic billing notification and payment system known as eBill. Students can authorize parents or other third parties to access the eBill system to view bills, enroll in payment plans, and make payments. Students can log in to eBill at to set up an authorized user.

Online payment methods include:

  • online checking or savings account, or
  • debit/credit card through a third-party processor.  The processor accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, and will add a 2.75% (minimum $3) convenience charge to the transaction. This charge is assessed by the processor, not Oakland University, and will not appear on your student account nor be covered by financial aid. Revenue from the charge goes directly to the processor to cover the cost of processing the credit/debit card. The convenience charge is not refundable under any circumstance.
Payment plans are available each semester to spread your costs into smaller payments.

You will need your Grizzly ID number and six-digit SAIL PIN. The account will be credited immediately when paying by eBill. Electronic payment confirmations will be sent to the student's OU email.  

Please remember that Student Accounts Past Due holds will be removed 5-10 minutes after paying the amount due. Partial payments will be reflected in the hold amount within 24 hours. 

Access the mobile eBill page at . Students and authorized users can opt-in to receive eBill notifications and scheduled payment reminders via text message. In eBill, select “My Account”, then “My Profiles", then “Communications” to opt-in to text messaging.

They also offer excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing students to pay in their home currency (in most cases) and save money, compared to traditional banks. Students will be able to track the progress of their payments throughout the transfer process with a student dashboard and e-mail notifications.
