Pay in full at the 2nd Friday of the term. Tuition is due upon registration for classes. Students are encouraged to pay all charges in full at the beginning of the term to avoid late fees or penalties.
Use the Oregon Tech Payment Plan. The payment plan allows you to pay any outstanding charges from prior terms plus one third of the charges for the current term during the first week of the term and then make payments on the balance. If you don’t pay in full by the due date, Oregon Tech automatically activates the Payment Plan once you have a Payment Plan Form on file with us.
- Read the Payment Plan Terms and Conditions. Return the signed form to the Oregon Tech Cashier’s Office.
- The Payment Plan is activated and an $10 service charge is assessed each term in which tuition and fees are not paid during the first week of the term.
- A 12% per annum interest charge is assessed on all unpaid balances.
If you receive grants, loans, or scholarships, you must use those funds to cover educational expenses. You may not be eligible to choose the Payment Plan unless your financial aid is insufficient to cover all tuition, fees, housing, and related expenses.
Late Fees and Collection Activity
Although we are reluctant to do so, Oregon Tech has the right to suspend the extension of credit and services; to withhold grade reports, transcripts, and graduation; and may deny or cancel registration of any student who has not paid or made arrangements to pay by designated payment deadlines. The right to services may also be in jeopardy if students are in debt to any institution within the Oregon University System.
Students are strongly encouraged to contact Cashier's Office (Snell Hall 116, 541- 885-1202, email@example.com) prior to the beginning of class - and at any time during the term - if they know they will have difficulty meeting any payment deadlines.
Know What You Owe
When you sign up for classes, you are assessed current tuition and fees. If you are living in the residence halls, you should request a list of fees and payment schedules from the Residence Hall staff.
If someone other than you is helping to pay your tuition and fees, you must arrange to keep them informed. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 , as amended, prevents Oregon Institute of Technology from discussing your student account with anyone except you - unless we have written consent on file. If you have additional questions regarding FERPA, visit http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html or contact the Registrar's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (541) 885-1301.
Oregon Tech generates eBills on a monthly cycle, and the billing statements will be available on-line through CASHNet®. Each month you will receive an e-mail notification that your bill is ready for your viewing. You may authorize a Benefactor to view your bill and make payments online.

Financial Aid and Sponsoring Agencies
The majority of students attending Oregon Tech receive some form of financial aid. We encourage you to stay in close touch with the Financial Aid Office staff about filing deadlines and your aid status. If you are awarded financial aid, you will be notified by the Financial Aid Office via an award letter, which you must sign and return. The annual financial aid is packaged in thirds and credited directly to your account each term if you are enrolled in the appropriate number of hours.
If you receive grants, loans, or scholarships, you must use those funds to cover educational expenses. You may not be eligible to choose the Payment Plan unless your financial aid is insufficient to cover all tuition, fees, housing, and other expenses.
Assistance from financial aid or a sponsoring agency may not be as much as expected. Students are still liable for all charges they incur. Should problems arise, please see a staff member in the Financial Aid Office or in Business Affairs Office. Special terms and conditions apply to sponsoring agency agreements. For example, students must provide Business Affairs Office with a written authorization or commitment to pay from the sponsoring agency.
Financial Aid is disbursed the Friday before the term begins (see financial aid disbursement). Any loan proceeds or other financial aid is first applied to tuition, fees, and other charges before the remaining balance is released to the student.
Withdrawal and Tuition/Fee Credits
If you must withdraw from a class or classes, you may be eligible for a credit, but specific rules apply:
You must withdraw during the refund period established by the Oregon University System (see the Class Schedule).
You must notify the Registrar in person or through Web for Students.
Your withdrawal date is the date the Registrar's office receives your official notification; you are liable for tuition for the class or classes until that date. Any monetary credit to your account that results from your withdrawal is calculated from the date of receipt of the withdrawal, not from the date you stopped attending class or classes.
Any tuition credit due must first be applied to all debts owed to Oregon Tech, OUS, or financial aid programs. The application of refunds to financial aid programs is a complex process governed by federal law. Contact Business Affairs for further information at (541) 885-1240.
After the refund period, you are responsible for 100% of tuition and fees (OUS refund schedule).
No credits are issued for dropped courses taken at staff rates.
To be eligible for a 100% tuition credit, you must cancel registration prior to the end of the first week of classes. To cancel registration, you must notify the Registrar in person or through Web for Students. Failure to do so will result in tuition charges.
Caution: If you withdraw completely from Oregon Tech and you have received financial aid, you may be required to repay some or all of that aid. If you fail to formally withdraw from Oregon Tech by notifying the Registrar in person or through Web for Students, you may be required to repay all of your aid. If you are considering complete withdrawal, it is critical that you read about the implications for complete withdrawal.
A check, credit card credit, or direct deposit is issued to the student after application of the refund to any and all charges remaining on an account or due back to financial aid programs. This procedure may take up to six weeks after partial or complete withdrawal.
