Tuition and fee payment schedule for new international students

International student orientation leaders and peer advisorsA change in the payment schedule for tuition and fees that applies to all new undergraduate, graduate and professional international students provides flexibility during their first semester at Ohio State. The change extends the payment deadline to the second Friday after the start of classes. For this autumn semester, that deadline would be Friday, September 1. This extended deadline only applies to an international student’s first semester of enrollment at Ohio State, and all future payments would be made according to Ohio State’s regular tuition and fee deadline schedule.

The new payment process is a streamlined system coordinated through the University Bursar with support from Strategic Enrollment Planning and the Office of International Affairs. The system allows for easier communication about one deadline for both housing, and tuition and fees. More importantly, it provides flexibility for international students during their first semester at Ohio State, contributing to a more comfortable transition to the United States.
