Indiana State University students can now pay their student fees online and paper bills will be replaced with a fully electronic system in less than a year, ISU officials announced.

The university last month began sending electronic statements to students along with paper bills. The parallel billing system will continue through the fall and spring semesters and the university will switch entirely to e-bills in July 2012.

"Many people are already accustomed to online banking or paying bills online. We think students and parents will find e-billing easy, convenient and secure," said Domenic Nepote, associate vice president for business affairs and assistant treasurer. "The eventual elimination of paper bills also supports the university's commitment to environmental sustainability."

Students can access their accounts and make payments online via the Student Account Suite by going to http://www.indstate.edu/payisu. Another option would be to visit the university's one-stop web page for student services, Sycamore Express, at www.indstate.edu/express and click on "Pay your bill" under the Billing and Finances section. Payments may be made via Visa, MasterCard or electronic withdrawal from a checking or savings account.

Students may also allow other individuals, such as parents, to access their accounts by setting up authorized users who will also be permitted to sign in to the account suite to view account information and make payments.

While the university is switching entirely to electronic billing, all current payment options will continue to be available.

Students and/or parents with questions about electronic billing may call 812-237-3511 or send an e-mail to ISU-Bill_Payment_Admin@indstate.edu.
