Fees & Deposits
SIS (Student Information System) please see the
"Help Pages and Useful Information" for illustrated "how-to" details on using Buckeye Link for viewing accounts, fee payment, managing FERPA releases, etc.
Spring 2021 Tuition is due January 4, or the day of registration if registering January 4 or after. Please see the Buckeye Business newsletter for detailed fee payment information. Bill notifications are sent via OSU student email, not U.S. mail - make sure you set up & can access your OSU email account and Buckeye Link!
Tuition Option Payment Plan The Ohio State University Tuition Payment Plan is a by-semester election/fee. A $30 TOPP fee will be charged (each semester) as students sign up for the plan on Buckeye Link, and tuition balances will be split into three payments for the summer semester. If you want to use the payment plan, you must sign up for TOPP via Buckeye Link AND make your first payment by the due date to avoid late fees. Due dates are: January 4, February 4, March 4, April 4.
Student Health Insurance (SHI) Online Waiver in Buckeye Link must be completed by January 4, 2021 for new, registered students; it is recommended that new students registering waive the health insurance immediately upon registration. Please see the SHI website link above for the latest information and read your student emails.
Direct Deposit allows you to get your refund of excess financial aid up to ten days earlier than with paper checks. Sign up online via your Buckeye Link account.
