Payments & Cancellation

Effective fall 2017, Oakland University is implementing new bill due and class cancellation dates. The new bill due dates are approximately two to three weeks before the first day of classes for each semester.

Along with the new bill due and cancellation dates, the payment plans have been expanded to allow students to enroll in a three installment or four installment plan, depending upon when they enroll, to spread their tuition and on-campus housing charges into several smaller payments. Payment plans are available for summer, fall and winter semesters.  Payment plans do not cover prior semester balances. Prior semester balances must be paid in full to avoid cancellation.

Final bill due date(s) and cancellation date(s) will be posted to this website once they have been established.

STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT PAID THEIR BILLS IN FULL BY THE ESTABLISHED DATE(S) WILL BE CANCELLED FROM CLASSES.

Stay tuned to this website over the coming months. Additional details on the new bill due dates, cancellation and expanded payment plans will be added as details emerge. The official bill due date, cancellation date and payment plan dates for fall 2017 will be posted to this website in mid to late winter 2017.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all financial services are now being delivered remotely. Our office remains virtually open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 5 p.m. Please contact us at finservices@oakland.edu or by virtual appointment.

Dates

Summer 2020 Dates

Summer tuition and housing charges will begin posting to your student account March 17 or as soon as you register for classes (if you register for classes after March 17). 

Payment due day: April 15, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. 
(for any balance on your student account on April 15)

If you add any new charges to your account after April 15, those charges need to be paid immediately to avoid having your classes (canceled) dropped for non-payment. Access eBill to make a payment or enroll in a payment plan.

Financial aid
Financial aid for the summer semester will appear on your account and be deducted from your account balance. It is important for you to check MySAIL to see if you have any unsatisfied financial aid requirements.

Know which charges financial aid can cover and pay in full any charges financial aid cannot pay.

Payment plan installments
The payment plan is for current semester charges only. The payment plan for summer opened March 17. If you have charges from a prior semester, they must be paid outside of the payment plan. Payments will always pay prior charges first before applying as a current payment plan installment payment. Please pay your payment plan installments by their due date.

Late payments
If you cannot make your payment(s) by April 15, please contact us immediately at finservices@oakland.edu or by virtual appointment. We are ready to work with you and make arrangements to keep you in good financial standing.

*Students who are canceled (dropped) from classes will have their tuition charges reversed. Students may re-register for classes based on class availability as long as registration is still open; new tuition charges need to be paid immediately. Students who are canceled (dropped) from housing will have their charges adjusted according to University Housing's terms and conditions.

How to Pay

Be proactive in paying your OU charges on time to stay enrolled in your classes and university housing (if applicable). You can pay your balance in full:

If your charges are not paid in full by the due date or if you have not signed up for a payment plan and made all required payments, you may be canceled (dropped) from your classes and university housing (if applicable). Students who are canceled (dropped) from classes will have their tuition charges reversed. Students who are canceled (dropped) from housing will have their charges adjusted according to University Housing's terms and conditions.

If you’re canceled (dropped) because your current semester charges have not been paid in full, you can re-register for classes based on class availability as long as registration is still open. If you’re canceled (dropped) because your past semester charges have not been paid in full, you can re-register based on class availability once the prior balance is paid in full. If you re-register for one or more credits, you must contact University Housing to reapply for housing as space is available. In all scenarios, all new tuition charges must be paid immediately.

Know which charges financial aid can cover and pay in full any charges financial aid cannot pay.
