At IU, how do I view and pay a bursar bill?
Important: The QuikPAY service for electronic billing and payment has been replaced on all campuses with a new method, Higher One.
On this page:
Each IU campus sets its own policy for accepted forms of payment. All campuses accept e-checks, standard checks, and cash. All campuses except IU Bloomington accept credit cards and debit cards. To pay with a credit or debit card, you must use the online IU Bursar Pay service (i.e., you cannot make a credit or debit card payment over the phone, by mail, or in person). For step-by-step instructions on making a credit card payment via IU Bursar Pay, view this video tutorial.
Note: At IUPUI and IUPUC only, bursar payments made with American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa are assessed a 2.7% convenience fee by the third-party company that processes credit card payments. The convenience fee applies to debit cards as well as credit cards, and is subject to change. The fee will not appear on your student bursar account statement. For more, see Credit card convenience fee. To avoid paying the convenience fee, use the e-check option via IU Bursar Pay, or mail a personal check to:
- For IUPUI payments:
IUPUI Office of the Bursar
PO Box 6020
Indianapolis, IN 46206-6020
- For IUPUC payments:
IUPUC Office of the Bursar
4601 Central Avenue
Columbus, IN 47203

Authorized third-party users
A parent, guardian, or other third party can pay all or part of a student's Indiana University bursar bill only after the student has granted that person third-party access to bursar bill information via OneStart. The student should follow the instructions for assigning third-party access, making sure to:
Bursar Balances and Bills.
- Enter and confirm an email address for the person who will be
paying the bursar bill.
- Pass the third-party username and password to the person who will be paying the bursar bill.
Note: For a video tutorial about this, watch Assigning 3rd Party User Access in OneStart.
Once a student has set up a third-party access account for a parent, guardian, or other third party, and the student has given that person the username and password for third-party access, that person can log into OneStart, access IU Bursar Pay, and pay all or part of that student's bursar bill.
If a student has granted you third-party access to bursar bill information, to pay all or part of the balance due:
- Visit OneStart.
- From the OneStart page, select the
3rd Party Accesssection on the left.
- Read the "Agreement to Terms" statement, and then select
Click here to view student information.
- On the following screen, enter the student's University ID
number, and the third-party access account username and password
the student created for you. Click
Note: If you forgot your third-party access account password, the student will need to reset it for you in OneStart by updating your third-party access account; for instructions, see Updating a third-party access account.
- A new
3rd Party Accesswindow should appear. Click any of the links to view the student's information. To return to the
3rd Party Accesswindow, click
- Follow the instructions provided to make a payment.
Note: For a video tutorial about this, watch Accessing Your Student's Information in OneStart.
In Higher One, use the My Account/Recent Payments feature to see electronic payments.
Note: Students see the history of all electronic payments processed; third-party users see only the electronic payments they have made.
