Bursar's Office - How to Make Payments

In an effort to assist our students with their busy schedules, as well as process the volume of payments we receive, the Bursar's Office has established several options for receiving payments. Please see below.


Online payments:  The Student Account Suite is available 24/7 through the Pay Online on the right-hand menu under Bursar Quick Links or via Owl Express. Webchecks from checking or savings accounts are accepted with no charge.  Upon verification of your routing and account information, your payment will be posted immediately.  MasterCard, American Express or Discover are also accepted, although a 2.75% convenience fee will apply. Follow all Web payment instructions for verification of your card numbers. If your credit card is approved, your fees will be charged immediately.

When accessing Owl Express, you should:

1.       Log in using your Net Id and password

2.       Click "Review Charges & Pay Online"

3.       To review your account only, click "Review Account Summary by Term"

4.       To pay, Click "Review Current Activity and Pay Online"

When accessing the Student Account Suite, you should:

1.       Log in using your NetID and password

2.       Click on "View Current Activity"

3.       Click on the drop down menu to choose the appropriate term, and click "GO"

4.       Review the activity and then click the "Make a Payment" button towards the bottom of the screen

5.       Click in the drop down menu to select your payment method, and click "GO"

6.       Choose your payment method and follow the remaining prompts to complete the transaction.

As with any Internet payment system, you may encounter difficulty in completing your transaction during peak usage times. Some Internet connections cannot be completed during these times for reasons unrelated to our system capabilities. Plus, some Internet Service Providers (ISP) may restrict access to payment systems.

As a result, we do not recommend that you wait until the tuition payment deadline to attempt to make your payment. Late payment fees will be assessed to student accounts not paid on time, and those fees will not be waived as a result of connectivity conditions.


U.S. Mail:  You may mail your check (no cash) along with your online statement to:

Kennesaw State University
Attn: Bursar's Office
1000 Chastain Road, Mail Box #0503
Kennesaw, GA 30144

Please make sure to put your KSU # on your check. If you inadvertently omit your online statement, your KSU # on your check will insure a proper match to your schedule when processed. Payments must be received on or by the payment deadline.


After Hours Drop Box:  A drop box has been provided for payment outside the Bursar's Office, Student Center, Room 233 - preaddressed envelopes are provided for your convenience as well. Please deposit your check (no cash) along with your on-line statement in an envelope and deposit it in the drop box.


In Person:  Payments can be made at the Bursar's Office in Room 233 of the Student Center. The cashiers' hours are 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday with extended hours on payment deadline. We accept cash, money orders and checks payable in United States currency and drawn from a financial institution located in the United States of America (the University reserves the right to determine the acceptability of all checks). Please note, credit cards are not accepted in person, only online.


Financial Aid Recipients:  If your financial aid paperwork is complete and you have received an award letter, your fees from Priority registration will automatically be deferred until the Final/Late Registration payment deadline. Paper student loan checks will be available for endorsement during Late/Drop Add registration. Financial Aid funds will be credited to the student's account after the close of registration. If you are due a refund, your refund will be transferred to your HigherOne disbursement account after the close of Final/Late registration. If you have not already done so, you must log on to the HigherOne web site at www.KSUOne.com, and choose your method of disbursement.

Scholarship/Sponsorship Recipients:  Your scholarship or sponsorship check may be mailed to either the Financial Aid or Bursar's Office. In either case, ultimately, it will be forwarded to the Bursar's Office for disbursement. We adhere strictly to the instructions of the agency and will disburse the funds accordingly. You must contact the Bursar's Office at or before the published payment deadline to ensure your scholarship has been received. Excess funds may be used to purchase books and supplies in the Bookstore. If you are due a refund, your refund will be transferred to your HigherOne disbursement account after the close of Final/Late registration. If you have not already done so, you must log on to the HigherOne web site - www.KSUOne.com - and choose your method of disbursement.

Agency/Third Party Billing:  Letters of Authorization and Corporate Vouchers must be received and approved by the Bursar's Office by payment deadline in order to retain your schedule. Students are responsible for all fees not covered by the sponsor and are due by the payment deadline.
