The University of Oklahoma’s Office of the Bursar is the centralized billing and payment location for student accounts.
The Bursar’s Office disburses financial aid, such as federal and institutional loans. This office also applies most scholarships and resident and non-resident tuition waivers awarded by university offices and academic departments that are authorized by the Office of Financial Aid Services. Waivers are non-cash awards that reduce tuition charges only. A number of payment options, including online payments, exist to allow families the greatest flexibility to pay for the student’s college costs. Additional information is available on the Web.
Be sure to check out “Ask the Sooners” when visiting the Bursar website. This comprehensive question-and-answer bank will help you find answers to your most frequently asked questions about financial aid, billing and payment issues, admissions, academic records, online registration and degree navigation.

Are students or parents billed for enrollment fees and tuition?
Students are billed for enrollment fees and tuition. Parents who wish to pay charges online or receive notification of statements will need their student to authorize release of the billing information to the parent by assigning them access to their account online. The Office of the Bursar generates a monthly statement for current charges as of the last day of every month. Students and authorized parents and payers will receive an email notification when the statement is ready for viewing.
Paying Tuition and Fees
The tuition and fee due date without penalty is Sept. 21 for the fall semester and Feb. 21 for the spring semester. For complete payment and deadline information, service charges, late charges and penalties, check the semester online Class Schedule or the bursars website. The quickest way to make your payment is electronically on oZONE using online pay. Payments can be made online with an e-check from your checking or savings account or by credit card. Online payments are easy, convenient, private and secure, and are posted to your account the same day. Students can easily set up authorized payers to make payments on their behalf.
University of Oklahoma students and employees who choose to pay their account online with a credit card (MasterCard, Discover and American Express) will incur a 2.75 percent convenience fee (minimum $3.00) for the use of the service. Credit card payments are no longer accepted in the Office of the Bursar or by phone.
