TUITION PAYMENT PLAN
The Tuition Payment Plan allows payment of tuition and room/board charges to be made in interest-free monthly installments. The earlier students enroll in the program, the more likely the lowest payment option will be available.
Students dropping a course or withdrawing from the University must follow University
policies for registration and withdrawal. The official date of withdrawal is the receipt
date of written notification presented to the Office of the Registrar or the date
the withdrawal was entered in ODU Online.
Tuition charges are equal to the percentage of the term completed by the drop date or withdrawal date. The prorated charge will be equal to the percentage of the term completed up to 60%. For withdrawals after 60% of the term completed, the charges will be 100%.
Financial Aid will be recalculated in accordance with federal guidelines. An updated statement of account will be mailed once all recalculations are complete. Resident students who withdraw during a semester may receive an adjustment to the cost of their meal plan. Refer to the Student Handbook for the refund schedule dates each semester. There will be no refund on room charges.
If your Financial Aid creates a credit balance on your student account, a refund check will be available approximately two weeks after the start of classes. Students not enrolled in eRefund will receive their refund via check.
- Check refunds are mailed to the home address on file with the university.
If you need to make mailing arrangements for the refund, contact the Business Office
Refund Direct Deposit
You may also elect to have your refund direct deposited into a checking or savings account by logging on to your account through the “Pay My Bill” link and selecting the “eRefunds” tab. You will need to enter a valid bank Routing and Account number.
If you do not have the completed form on file, a paper check will be processed.
The form can be completed online.
If NO PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS are made student schedules may be administratively canceled.
REGISTRATION for the upcoming semester will not be permitted if there is an unpaid balance on the student account or if a payment plan is delinquent.
HOLDS will be placed on transcripts, diplomas and records of any kind for students with unpaid balances.
