Student Account Payment Options and Due Dates

Payment Plans - Ferris State University offers three (3) payment plans to pay your total semester charges if you do not pay your balance in full by the first due date of the semester. 

Students who have sufficient financial aid to cover their semester charges do not need to make a payment or enroll in a payment plan. Students who do not have sufficient financial aid to cover their semester charges need to select a payment plan and make their first installment or pay their balance in full to avoid having their class schedules dropped. The table below provides general information on each payment plan available:

A student can view their real-time balance through their E-bill account. A student can also check their account balance online through their account balance online through their MyFSU account by completing the following.

  • Click on the Academics & Services tab
  • Under Student Records, click on Account Summary by Term
  • Click on the term heading (ex. Spring, Jan. 12 - May 8) to view single semester, including any pending financial aid that has not disbursed to the account


Students Dropped Before Late Registration:

  • Business Operations will place a registration hold on students who have had their classes dropped for non-payment.
  • Students will be notified via their MyFSU email if their class schedule has been dropped.
  • Students should contact Business Operations at (231)591-3972 to have their registration hold lifted.
  • Dropped students who are rescheduling during drop/add will need to have sufficient financial aid to cover their balance or select a payment plan and pay the required amount due for the first installment (after financial aid), or pay their balance in full to prevent their schedule from being dropped again. Past due balances must be paid in full.

 

Students Registering During Late Registration Before Drop/Add Period:

Students who have their first registration activity during the late registration period (typically during the week preceding classes), will not have an E-bill statement placed online for them. Instead, they will need to look at their current activity in E-bill to view their charges and pending financial aid.  These students will need to select a payment plan and make the required first installment after financial aid, pay the balance in full, or ensure there is sufficient financial aid to cover their semester charges by the business day before classes begin to avoid having their classes dropped.  

Students Registering After Late Registration During Drop/Add Period:

Students who have no registration activity by the end of late registration, will also be charged the late registration fee of $100 when registration is completed. These students will also have a Business Operations registration hold placed on their account and will need to have sufficient financial aid, select a payment plan and make the required payment (after financial aid), or pay their balance in full to avoid having their class schedule dropped for non-payment. The student should contact the Business Operations Office at (231)591-3972 to have their registration hold lifted.

Students Registering For Additional Credits After Drop/Add Is Completed:

Students who wish to add additional credits via a four-part registration form approved by an instructor and/or Dean's Office need to have sufficient financial aid or pay the amount due depending on the payment plan that was selected at the beginning of the semester. If a student is not enrolled into a payment plan the additional credits must be paid in full.

Students Registering After Drop/Add Is Completed:

If a student is not registered by the deadlines below for the semester, the Business Operations registration hold will not be lifted except in cases of a successful appeal to the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs. Appeal forms can be picked up at the Student Service Center, CSS 101. (Appeals must be approved by the VP of Academic Affairs before the student goes to their Deans Office for late registration approval.) As a part of this appeal, students must have sufficient financial aid, enroll in Payment Plan 1 and make the required payment, or pay the balance in full (after financial aid) to have the hold lifted prior to registration. Students registering at this time are subject to a late registration fee of $100. Past due balances must be paid in full.
