Billing & Payment Dates & Deadlines
Billing statements will be forwarded to students' UIndy email accounts beginning eight weeks prior to the start of a term. (UIndy email accounts may be activated at accounts.uindy.edu.)
Thereafter, statements will be emailed on a weekly basis until the beginning of the term. A link will be included in the email message that will allow easy access to the online bill payment system where a student may view, pay, print a statement or sign up for mobile alerts.
The student also may add an unlimited number of authorized users to the system, which may include parents/guardians or employers. An authorized user must have a valid email address and only will have access to a student's billing information.
Any student enrolled in an undergraduate day class in the fall semester must pay a tuition deposit of $100 by May 1. Some graduate programs also require a deposit. Students who will live in campus housing also must pay an additional $50 deposit to reserve a room. Students who will live in Greyhound Village Apartments must pay an additional $250 to reserve an apartment. Deposits will appear as an advance payment on the fall billing statement. If a student decides not to attend UIndy or cancels a housing contract, the deposit may be forfeited.
Regular semesters: Payment is due by the payment deadline each semester, which is approximately four weeks before the start of each term. Unpaid balances are subject to a $50 late payment fee. The payment deadline for accelerated programs is the Wednesday prior to the week a class starts. Some special programs may have other payment deadlines. Contact your department or the Bursar’s Office for assistance.
Summer term: Due to the condensed nature of the UIndy summer term, payments are due on Wednesday one week prior to the course start date. Summer unpaid balances are subject to a $50 late payment fee.
In addition, students who do not make satisfactory payment arrangements by the due date may be dropped from their classes. The student may be reinstated in classes on a space available basis after payment arrangements have been made with the Bursar's Office and with the approval of the Registrar's Office.
Appealing a late payment fee
To appeal a late payment fee, write a letter explaining why you feel the late payment fee should not be assessed. Provide as much information as possible in your letter about your situation. Mail or fax your letter to the Accounting Office.

The Accounting Office will review your letter and forward it to the appropriate office for a decision on the appeal. If your appeal is granted, the late payment fee will be reversed on your account and a refund will be issued if applicable.
UIndy offers interest-free payment plans to qualified students enrolled in eligible programs. There is a $40 fee to enroll in a payment plan. A late fee of $20 is assessed each month payment is not made. Students or authorized users can see which payment plans are available for their account and apply using the UIndy e-bill system.
The 100% refund deadline for individually dropped classes is the first Friday of each semester. After the first week of the semester, refunds are calculated only upon complete withdrawal from the University. The refund rate drops daily for complete withdrawal through the eighth week of the semester.
