Tuition

When will my tuition and fees be due?

Tuition and fees are due seven calendar days prior to the start of the semester. You can view your statement of account and fee payment deadline through Buckeye Link.

How can I pay my tuition and fees?

There are three payment options:

  • Electronic payment (online payment from a U.S. checking or savings account)
  • Credit card (Discover, MasterCard, VISA and American Express only)
  • Wire transfer of foreign currency

It is highly recommended that you pay through the first method, electronic payment. To do so, you must first set up a U.S. bank account upon arrival. For further details on these methods of payment, visit these two websites:

Note that you cannot pay your tuition and fees in cash.

What is the Financial Responsibility Statement, and how do I complete it?

The Financial Responsibility Statement (FRS) is an acknowledgement you must make every semester that you understand the financial obligation involved in being an Ohio State student. By completing the statement in Buckeye Link, you are confirming you understand and agree to uphold your financial obligation to the university (i.e., to pay your tuition, fees and all other charges associated with being a student). Students who do not complete the Financial Responsibility Statement prior to registering each term will have a Registration Lock Hold placed on their account, preventing them from registering, adding a course or moving off of a wait-list. Once the statement is completed for the term, the hold is removed. For more information and instructions on completing the FRS, visit buckeyelink.osu.edu/task/all/financial-responsibility-statement.
