Ferris State University uses a paperless billing system. Instead of sending a paper bill via USPS, students and their authorized users will receive email notifications for billing statements that will be available online through E-Bill.
The E-Bill feature is available to students through their MyFSU account. Students need to set up authorized user access in E-bill before those that would need access to your billing statement, such as parents, can be notified. Students may add authorized users to their account under the E-Bill link on MyFSU by clicking on "Authorized Users."
This authorized user access would allow others to receive monthly emails regarding your consolidated student tuition bill, see the detailed statement, and pay online using a checking or savings account or credit card. The consolidated student bill can include charges such as tuition, books, parking permits, software charges, and library fines.
Ferris State University offers two payment plan options to pay total semester charges. The Traditional Payment Plan requires payment in full on the first billing date prior to the first day of classes.
The Deferred Payment Plan allows the student to make payments on their account. A one-time deferred processing fee of $30 per semester will be charged.
- Please keep in mind that the above percentages are an overview of how the account balance will be paid in full (100%) when you use the deferred payment plan. Read your bill carefully to ensure you are making the appropriate payment for the proper due date. It will prompt you to calculate the amount due in some instances.
- Students who have sufficient financial aid to cover their semester charges in full do not need to make a payment. Students who do not have sufficient financial aid to cover their semester charges need to pay a minumum of 50% of their balance after financial aid to avoid having their class schedules dropped.
- A 2% late fee will be added to student accounts that are not paid by the third payment date of each semester.
- If you do not receive a billing statement, contact the Business Operations at (231) 591-2125 or Student Services at (231) 591-5242. Not having received a bill by email is NOT justification for late payment. A student can also check their account balance online through their MyFSU account by completing the following:
- Click on the Academics & Services tab
- Under Student Records, click on Account Summary by Term
- Click on the term heading (ex. Spring 2010, Jan 11-May 7) to view single semester, including any pending financial aid that has not disbursed to the account
