As you prepare for Winter Break, please review your statement of account for accuracy. Tuition and Fees are due Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024.
If you enrolled in the Tuition Option Payment Plan (TOPP) in Autumn Semester and you wish to use it for Spring, you need to enroll in the plan. It does not carry over from the previous semester.
The safest and most secure way to make your payment is online through your Buckeye Link. As a reminder, paying with an electronic check does not incur a fee. If you use a debit card or credit card, there will be a 2.85% convenience fee charged by the vendor.
Checks that are mailed and postmarked by January 2nd will be considered “on time”.
Spring semester refunds are anticipated to start on Wednesday, January 3rd.
The first day of class for Spring Semester is Monday, January 8th.
