Billing Cycle & Due Dates

Billing Cycle & Due Dates

Student Business Services will begin sending billing notifications electronically to each student’s official Oakland University email address the first week of classes each semester. Tuition,  university housing and meal charges, other allowable educational charges (Graham Health Center, lost ID card charge, etc.) and student account adjustments are generally due three weeks into a semester. Students may access their student account information, including bills, via the eBill system.

IMPORTANT!! If you have not set up your official Oakland University email address (@oakland.edu) you will not receive your billing notification.  FAILURE TO RECEIVE AN ELECTRONIC NOTIFICATION DOES NOT EXCUSE STUDENTS FROM REQUIRED PAYMENT ON THE SPECIFIED DUE DATE.

Students who have a past due balance from a prior semester will be taken out of their future semester classes. To stay in good financial standing, please pay all OU bills on or before their due dates. Read more about de-registration.

The best way to avoid billing problems is to resolve all issues and questions before the first bill due date of the semester. Waiting until the bill due date, the first day of registration, or the first week of classes to ask questions or get information will likely mean long waits at the office and busy telephone lines. 

 Below are some tips to avoid billing problems:
  • Know your Grizzly ID number and PIN.
  • Know how to access SAIL to check on your registration records and financial aid information.
  • Make sure to read the Billing and Payment Information section of your student bill on eBill.
  • Make sure to read the Important Semester Dates for each semester. Review the calendar showing the dates for the 100% refund period. This date is very important for students who are expecting to receive financial aid. Review financial aid policies for eligibility/requirements.
  • Read your housing contract, including the section that discusses cancellation policy.
  • Keep your address and phone numbers updated at all times. 
  • Access eBill and establish any person that would need to pay your account as an authorized user.
