Confirming Your Registration:

Avoid Cancellation of Courses:

  • Meet the payment requirements by the invoice due date.
  • Confirm that you will be attending Purdue:
    • Log-on to your MyPurdue account
    • Select the "Financial" tab
    • Click on "Registration Status/Enrollment Confirmation"
    • Review the output. If any items are in red, there is further action required


If you do not wish to be a student for the semester, you can cancel your registration through myPurdue before the first day of classes. After classes start, students must contact the Office of Dean of Students (DOS).

A late registration fee of $200.00 will be assessed to all students registering (or re-registering if your schedule was cancelled) after the first week of classes. Please allow sufficient mailing and posting time for payments - a minimum of 10 days is recommended.

Making Payment:

Log-in to your MyPurdue account, select the "Financial" tab, then "Manage my Account". This will take you to our secure payment gateway. From this site you can view your invoice and if there is an amount due, you can pay via Purdue's on-line electronic payment option by simply clicking on "Make a Payment".

Is your parent or another party making payment? Once you are logged-on to MyPurdue, you can set up an "Authorized User" who will then have the ability to view and pay bills on-line as well! Go to MyPurdue -> 'Financial' tab -> 'Manage My Account' -> 'Authorized Users' tab to add their contact information.

The Bursar's Office accepts payments for tuition and fees, deposits, on-campus housing, installment plans, and other misc. charges shown on MyPurdue. We accept on-line ACH, personal checks, cashiers checks, money orders, and wire transfers.

Purdue has contracted with TouchNet Information Systems to allow students to use TouchNet PayPath software to pay student fees online with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express credit cards. A convenience fee of 2.75% (or minimum of a $3), will apply if you choose this payment method through TouchNet Information Systems.

Disbursement of Financial Aid Refunds:

Funds are disbursed by two options:

  • Sign-up for Direct Deposit. This is the safest and quickest way to have your EXCESS funds deposited. They are put directly into a U.S. checking or savings account. An e-mail notice will be sent indicating the direct deposit of your excess funds has been made. Sign up today by following these five simple steps:
    • Log in to your myPurdue account
    • Choose the "Financial" tab
    • Click on "Manage My Account"
    • This will open TouchNet, Purdue's online billing and payment center
    • Click on "My Profiles" tab and set up a payment profile
    • Check the Refund Option box. "Please check here if you would like refunds to be deposited to this account" (This will then be the account that is used to directly deposit refunds)
  • Your aid check will be mailed to you at your local address.

It may take some time to replace a lost check, so it is important to sign-up for direct deposit, or to keep your local address up-to-date via myPurdue.

Parent Plus Refunds

Parent Plus refunds cannot be direct deposited. These funds will refund to the parent in the form of a check to the address the loan was processed under unless the parent authorizes excess funds to be disbursed to the student on their loan application. Parents may also contact the Bursar's Office and sign a form to authorize aid to be released to the student if they do not do so on the application.

Promissory notes and supplemental sheets for Purdue Loans, Health Professional Loans, and the Federal Perkins Loan will need to be signed and completed electronically via ECSI. THE LOANS WILL BE DISBURSED ONLY IF THE ON-LINE ENTRANCE INTERVIEW HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND PROMISORRY NOTES ARE SIGNED. If you do not want one of these loans, you must contact the Financial Aid Office. Failure to complete this process will not automatically cancel the loan credits.

Parents and students should note that Stafford and PLUS Loan funds are sent to Purdue by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Check endorsement is not necessary when funds are transferred electronically to Purdue.
