How, When, and Where to Pay -
Spring 2013 Fee Payment Process
PAYMENT OF ACCOUNT CHARGES
PLEASE NOTE: If you are enrolled but DO NOT PLAN to attend ESU for Spring 2013, you must withdraw from your classes by the end of the 100% refund period to completely reverse assessed tuition and fees from your student account. If you withdraw, after receiving financial aid, federal regulations may require payment of financial aid funds. Failure to withdraw obligates the student to pay tuition and fees in full.
ANY STUDENT WHO DOES NOT PAY FEES OR MAKE FEE PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS BY 5:00 P.M. CDT ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CLASS (WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013) WILL BE DROPPED FROM SCHEDULED CLASSES.
For payment to be credited to your account by the fifth day of class, please allow time for mailing and processing. Financial aid must be authorized AND disbursed to be considered a payment on your account. Prior semester charges must be paid-in-full before any student can retain their Spring 2013 course schedule.
NOTE: Payment will retain the student’s class schedule. If payment has been applied to your account (i.e. personal payment, grants, scholarships, or loans) and you DO NOT PLAN to attend ESU, you must withdraw from your classes by the end of the 100% refund period to completely reverse assessed tuition and fees. Failure to do so obligates the student to pay tuition and fees in full.
Cashiers & Student Accounts is responsible for the collection of tuition, fees and residence hall payments. Payments can be made online or at the Cashiering Services window located in Plumb Hall. Students are not officially enrolled in classes until fees are paid or payment arrangements have been made.

- Late fee assessment begins on Tuesday during the week the class begins.
- No student shall be permitted to finalize enrollment for any semester if there are outstanding delinquencies from prior semesters. Students with outstanding debts to the University, whether financial or material, may have their transcripts and/or enrollment withheld.
- If the University receives a returned check for fees, the University reserves the right to withdraw the student from classes and to charge the student fees due as of that date.
The University makes available a Spring 2013 Extended Payment Agreement for account balances. Under this plan, students make a $150 account payment by the 5th day of class. This down payment, which can include financial aid, will retain the student’s class schedule. If a student cannot pay the account balance in full by the first day of class, a $50 administrative fee will be applied to the account for an automatic payment extension to the 20th class day. If charges are not paid on or before the first extension, an additional $50 administrative fee will be automatically applied for an additional extension to the 35th class day. Any account balance remaining after the second payment extension is considered past due. A late fee of $50 will be assessed each month the balance remains outstanding. An Extended Payment Agreement can be completed in person or obtained on-line at http://www.emporia.edu/busaff. The form must be completed and returned to the Office of Cashiering Services prior to the 5th day of class.
