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:

Payment options

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

Multiple-installment deferred payment options are available at each campus for students whose bursar accounts are in good standing. For details, including due dates and deferment fees, see:

For campus-specific bursar payment options, see:

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:

  • Select 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:

  1. Visit OneStart.

  2. From the OneStart page, select the 3rd Party Access section on the left.

  3. Read the "Agreement to Terms" statement, and then select Click here to view student information.

  4. 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 Submit.

    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.

  5. A new 3rd Party Access window should appear. Click any of the links to view the student's information. To return to the 3rd Party Access window, click Return.

  6. Follow the instructions provided to make a payment.

Note: For a video tutorial about this, watch Accessing Your Student's Information in OneStart.

Viewing payments

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.
