All payments must be in U.S. currency. Remittance should be made payable to “Oakland University” and identified with the student name and the last four digits of the Grizzly ID number. We do not accept payments over the phone.
Payments returned by the bank are considered nonpayment and may result in cancellation of registration. A $25 charge will be assessed for returned items.
Pay online / eBill
Oakland University uses an electronic billing notification and payment system known as eBill. Students can authorize parents or other third parties to access the eBill system to view bills, enroll in payment plans, and make payments. Students can log in to eBill at oakland.edu/r/ebill to set up an authorized user.
Online payment methods include online checking or savings account, debit card, or credit card. You will need your Grizzly ID number and six-digit SAIL PIN. The account will be credited immediately when paying by eBill. Electronic payment confirmations will be sent to the student's OU email.
Please remember that Student Accounts Past Due holds will be removed 5-10 minutes after paying the amount due. Partial payments will be reflected in the hold amount within 24 hours.
Access the mobile eBill page at oakland.edu/eBillMobile. Students and authorized users can opt-in to receive eBill notifications and scheduled payment reminders via text message. In eBill, select “My Account”, then “My Profiles", then “Communications” to opt-in to text messaging.
