Avoid the stress and delays by resolving your requirements! Not sure where to look? Here are a couple ideas of where to start:
University Bill for Spring 2021
Bills are due on the first day of classes, January 19, 2021. For more information - http://www2.indstate.edu/bursar/pay.htm
Refunds and Disbursements
Federal Aid pays no earlier than a week prior to the start of classes. By January 11, all aid will have paid to students with complete files.
Claiming the Work Study Award
Federal Work Study Program is a subsidized employment program. The only way for students accepting their Federal Work Study award to receive the award amount is to get a job, work their assigned hours per week and earn the funding. For more information - click here
