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.
