Checklist for Student Billing

Questions about the student billing process? The Office of Admission and the Office of Student Accounts are here to help. Refer back to this list to ensure you stay informed and on track when it comes to paying the bill.

Billing Schedule

All billing statements are electronic and published the second Wednesday of every month. The first E-Bill for fall 2022 will be published July 13 and is due in full on August 2 unless you’re enrolled in the Monthly Payment Plan.

Monthly Payment Plan

If you want to pay the bill in four payments per term, you must enroll via your my.butler.edu account by July 11. More information about the Monthly Payment Plan is available on the Office of Student Account’s website.

E-Pay, Payment Information, and Authorized Payers

E-Pay allows you to submit electronic payments and credit card payments. Paper checks—including 529 plan payments—can be submitted in person and by mail. International payments can be submitted via PayMyTuition.

You can also create authorized payers for anyone assisting you with your financial obligations to Butler University. Authorized Payers receive email notifications when the E-Bill is available and have their own access to view the bill and make payments.

Anticipated Aid

Financial aid that you’ve accepted is included on your E-Bill as “anticipated.” The aid posts to your student account the fifth day of classes. Any “pending” funds (e.g. outside scholarships) are not included in your Anticipated Aid until the funds have been received and processed by the Office of Financial Aid.

Federal Financial Aid

Per federal regulations, you must grant permission for all of your federal (Title IV) funds (e.g. Pell Grant, Direct Loans) to be applied to all miscellaneous charges (e.g. bookstore charges, parking decals, etc.).

Copies of E-Bills

If outside scholarship sources, 529 savings plan administrators, etc. have requested a copy of your E-Bill, forward immediately upon receipt to ensure payments are received by the Office of Student Accounts by the due date.

Annual Health Insurance Requirement

All full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students, graduate students enrolled in six or more credit hours, and undergraduate international students must have health insurance while attending Butler University. If you already have health insurance coverage, you must complete the online waiver after full-time enrollment and before August 1. The waiver site opens in late June and must be completed each year. If you do not waive the health insurance plan by August 1, the charge will be included in your August E-Bill. For more information, visit Health Service’s website.

Refund Checks and Direct Deposit

If you anticipate a credit balance on your student account after your financial aid posts, log in to my.butler.edu, click on the Refund Request tile, and follow the prompts to complete. Visit the Office of Student Accounts website for more information.
