Past Due Accounts

Know What You Owe

When you sign up for classes, you are assessed tuition and fees. There are also some programs and courses that require additional 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 of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, prevents Oregon Tech from discussing your student account with anyone except you - unless we have written consent on file. If you have questions regarding FERPA, please visit the U.S. Department of Education FERPA website, or contact the Registrar's Office at or by calling 541.885.1300.

Oregon Tech generates eBills on a monthly cycle, and the billing statement will be available online through CASHNet®. Each month that you have a balance, you will receive a notification that your bill is ready to be viewed. You may authorize a Benefactor to view your eBills and make payments online on your behalf.

Late Fees and Collection Activity

Student account balances are due on or before the 12th calendar day (2nd Friday) of each term.

  • Students enrolled in the Payment Plan who do not have any past due balance must have ⅓ of their total balance paid by the due date.
  • Students not enrolled in the Payment Plan are required to pay their balance in full on any charges incurred through the 12th calendar day.

In order to take advantage of the Payment Plan there can be no past due balance on the student's account.

If you aren't sure what you owe, you can check your balance on Web for Student (under the Student Tab, by selecting the "Student Records" option and either "Detail by Term" or "Summary by Term") or on CASHNet®.

We encourage students to check their Web for Student or CASHNet® account frequently during the second week of the term to make sure they do not owe an account balance to Oregon Tech.

  • The late fee is a flat $99 fee for any balance greater than $100 (only one late payment fee is assessed per term).

See Cashier's Calendar for late fee assessment dates and more detailed information regarding payment due dates. Cashier's Office Calendar

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 diplomas. Additionally, Oregon Tech may deny or cancel registration of any student who has not paid or made arrangements to pay by the designated payment deadlines.

Students are strongly encouraged to contact the Cashier's Office at, by calling (541) 885.1202, or in person at the Cashier's Office during our normal business hours if they know they will have difficulty meeting any payment deadlines.

    The Oregon Tech Student Financial Responsibility Agreement is an agreement students usually sign electronically when registering for classes the first time. This agreement allows students to pay the current term balance in three ⅓ installments during the term ($10 service fee and monthly interest applies). This agreement is also required to charge textbooks and supplies to a student account at the Tech Nest Bookstore. Use this paper copy if the electronic version was not signed.
