Students who have sufficient financial aid in place by the due date 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 droppedStudents will not be able to enroll in a payment plan until there are charges posted to their student account, Student Financial Services will post tuition, housing, etc. charges a month before the semester begins.

  • Click on the Student tab
  • Under Student Quick Links, click on MyAccount
  • Click on the term heading (ex. Spring, January 8 - May 4) to view single semester, including any pending financial aid that has not disbursed to the account.

Students Dropped Before Late Registration

  • Student Financial Services 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 Student Financial Services 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 Student Financial Services 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 Student Financial Services 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 Student Financial Services registration hold will not be lifted except in cases of a successful approval by the Dean's Office. Students initiate the request with their Dean's Office to enroll for the term and to receive permission for each class they wish to take. The Dean's Office will complete a 4-part form with the classes to be added, including instructor and/or Dean's Office signatures and approvals where applicable. The on-campus students must deliver the 4-part form to the Timme Center for Student Financial Services Counter and off campus students will have their Dean's Office submit the form to the Registrar's Office on behalf of the student. All students must satisfy one of the following requirements with Student Financial Services: have sufficient financial aid to cover the bill in full, submit out of pocket payment in full, or enroll in a payment plan and submit necessary payment. Students registering at this time are subject to a late registration fee of $100. Past due balances must be paid in full.
