All payments are due on the MONDAY prior to the first day of instruction each semester. A student account must be paid in full or you must be enrolled in a payment plan before the first day of academic instruction in order to avoid late payment penalties, collection activity and account holds. The University will not register a student, confer a degree on a student, or provide a transcript to any student or former student who has any financial obligation to the University (other than a loan not yet due).
Students who have an unpaid balance or are not current with their budget payment plan installments will not be permitted to keep their future term enrollment. Students who have an outstanding balance at the end of a term may not participate in an upcoming term until their debt has been satisfied or reduced to an acceptable level.

FEDERAL REGULATIONS PROHIBIT THE USE OF CURRENT FINANCIAL AID FOR PAYMENT OF PAST-DUE CHARGES. STUDENTS MAY NOT USE CURRENT OR FUTURE FINANCIAL AID OVER $200 TO REPAY A DEBT FROM A PRIOR ACADEMIC YEAR.
The University assesses a $100 late charge on every student account each month if payment in full or enrollment in a payment plan with an accompanying payment is not received before the first day of academic instruction. Students enrolled in a budget payment plan are assessed a $25 late fee each month a payment is late or only a partial payment is received. Failure to pay amounts due may result in the referral of outstanding balances to a third party billing company or collection agency; additional fees may be assessed at that time. Cleveland State University utilizes a third party agent, ECSI to report unpaid balances over $1,000 to the national credit bureaus.

Please write your CSU ID number on the front of the check. Do not mail credit card information or cash. Also, do not use the interoffice Campus Mail service to deliver any check, credit card or cash payment.
When you provide a check as payment, you authorize CSU to either use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. When we use information from your check to make an electronic funds transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day you make your payment.
Cleveland State University does not accept foreign checks. For the benefit of our international students, wire transfers are the preferred method of remitting payments. This allows a student to access their funds within 48 hours rather than the usual six to eight weeks required for processing a foreign check.
The following table identifies information required to transfer funds to the University's bank account. This information should be provided to the originator of the funds. Contact Charles Miller at 216-523-7441, or firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office of Treasury Services for the actual routing number, swift code and account number.
