Each semester, students have the option of paying in full or signing up for a payment plan.
Please Note: Study Abroad charges are billed and due by the due date stated on the bill and are not eligible for the payment plan each semester.
See Billing Information for more information on the installment fee.
Special warning about failed payments: You will be charged a penalty of $25 for each check or E-check returned to Illinois State University. Your check-cashing privileges may be suspended when more than one check / E-check is returned to Illinois State University. In most cases, the individual who endorses the two-party check is the one liable for any penalties if the check is returned.
If your payment failed and your check(s) or E-check(s) that was originally issued to clear a delinquency and thus allow you to register for classes is returned, you must pay in full the returned check/E-check fee(s) to avoid those classes being cancelled. Please contact the Student Accounts Office for more information.
