Office of the Bursar

Welcome to IU South Bend's Office of the Bursar web site. The Office of the Bursar, located in the Administration Building, is responsible for the timely dissemination of accurate information relating to a student's bursar account. We interact daily with students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators as well as with outside agencies. It is our goal to provide outstanding customer service while maintaining a high level of integrity, honesty and professional ethics.

The Office of the Bursar also acts as a clearing house for student charges and credits, in addition to processing payments, credits, charges and refunds. This office monitors student accounts and generates monthly electronic bills (e-bills).

Banded Tuition

Beginning Fall 2016, undergraduate students enrolled at all Indiana University campuses, including IU South Bend, will pay one rate for their basic tuition when taking between 12 credits and 18 credits. Banded tuition is designed to help students graduate in four years and reduce the cost of their education. For more information go to

Billing and payment information

Currently bursar statements are available for viewing on and printing from One.IU through View/Pay Bursar Bill (IU Bursar Pay). Students and authorized payers receive email notifications when a new bill is generated and have access to the statements much faster than paper bills are available, providing greater time for remitting payment by the due date (whether paying electronically or by mail).

Students can charge their books

Students can charge their books to their bursar accounts. Deposits can be made online at

If you plan to use excess financial aid to pay your book charge, you must have a Title lV Authorization on file on your One.IU account.

  • Go to One.IU and log in
  • Go to: Services & Information>Student Authorizations>Grant Authorizations>South Bend Campus>Title lV Authorization
  • Read the Authorization
  • Select Next
  • Click on the box stating that you have read the Authorization
  • Click Submit

Attention New IU South Bend Students

IU South Bend must comply with federal regulations for disbursement of Title IV financial aid (Stafford Loan, Pell Grant, Perkins Loan, Graduate PLUS Loan, Parent PLUS Loan, etc.). Without a signed Authorization, Title IV aid can be applied only to certain charges(tuition, mandatory fee, course-related fees, program fees, contracted housing charge). With a signed Authorization, Title IV aid can be applied to all IU charges (Health Center charges, parking permits, library fines, optional fees, etc). Even with a signed Authorization, current academic year (fall and spring terms) Title IV aid cannot pay more than $200 of any prior year charges.

If you wish to sign an Authorization and ensure the most inclusive use of your federal aid, you may do so on One.IU Self-Service by following these steps:

  • Go to One.IU and login
  • Search for "Title IV"
  • Read the Authorization
  • Select Next.
  • Click on the box stating you have read the Authorization.
  • Click Submit

Even if you have no Title IV aid, we encourage you to review the Authorization and consider signing it now. You might need Title IV aid for the future semester and if you do, you will already have the Authorization in place - once you sign it, it stays in effect for your IU South Bend career unless you revoke it.

If you have a balance which becomes past due, it is subject to a monthly late fee and it may prevent you from registering for a future term until the balance is paid. In addition, your ability to obtain a transcript, verification of enrollment, or diploma is restricted while your account is encumbered. Please remember to check your monthly e-bill in One.IU and pay any balance owed by the due date to prevent late fees from accruing and your IU services being stopped.
