How to enroll in a BGSU Installment Payment Plan

If you would like to enroll in an IPP, please enroll promptly to ensure you maximize the number of installments. Please note, you must be enrolled in the current semester in order to qualify.

  • Log in to MyBGSU
  • Select Student Center
  • Select My Account
  • Select Make A Payment
  • Select Payment Plan Options
  • Please note: Payments directed to BGSU should be rendered for the amount due based upon the student account summary, or the expected amount of tuition, fees, and on-campus housing less any anticipated financial aid. Payments for off-campus housing, or other personal living expenses should be directed to your personal bank account, (not the University). In the case of flywire transfers, the wire transfer will be reversed to return funds back to the originating account less any return costs.

    Health Insurance-Health insurance is typically assessed in both semesters. The fall coverage is from the start of the semester (mid-August) to December 31st and billed based on the length of time of coverage. The Spring coverage is from January 1st to the following start of the next fall semester (mid-August) and assessed for the length of coverage. The spring assessment is larger due to the variance of coverage.

    Title IV funds are federal funds awarded to students for tuition and fee coverage. Pell and SEOG grants, Perkins, and Federal Direct Student Loans, are all forms of this aid. This aid may be awarded to students through their financial aid package, and can only cover tuition, fees and contracted room and board, unless the students authorize payment to pay miscellaneous fees.

    All student bills are online and are generally available immediately after you register or change your schedule (Fall available-July 2nd, Spring available-December 1st, and Summer available-April 1st). Students should check their online bill frequently because various charges could post at any time. As a courtesy, you will receive an email notification to your BGSU email account when there has been activity on your account and that your bill is available for viewing and payment. You will not receive a paper bill in the mail.

    The 1098-T form is used by eligible educational institutions to report information about their students to the IRS as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. The 1098-T form is informational only and should not be considered as tax advice. It serves as an alert to students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits such as the Lifetime Learning and the American Opportunity Credit as part of their Federal Income Tax Return.
