At IU, how do I pay a bursar bill?
Important: QuikPAY has been replaced by a new electronic billing and payment system for bursar accounts on all Indiana University campuses.
Higher One is a method for IU students to pay bursar bills electronically, as well as view and print receipts. Additionally, in OneStart, students can authorize third parties, such as parents or guardians, to view bursar bills, and to pay all or part of the balance due. Together, these two systems are known as IU Bursar Pay.
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.
Note: Due to transaction fees charged to the university, payments made with MasterCard, Discover, and American Express on IUPUI bursar accounts will be assessed a 2.7% convenience fee by the third-party service provider. The 2.7% rate is subject to change. Because of limitations imposed by Visa, IUPUI can no longer accept Visa as a payment method for bursar accounts.
In addition, IUPUI has a Pay-4 payment plan to assist with payment options for students and their families.
For more, see Credit card convenience fee and the tutorials linked above.

Student Self-Service section should be visible; if it is not,

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.

- Visit OneStart.
