Billing and Payments

Account Information

Students, faculty, and staff should view their EKU account regularly by logging into their myEKU account and clicking on “Billing Statement”. A monthly billing notification is currently emailed to all individuals with a balance due to the university to that individual’s official EKU email account. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the student of obligation to pay by the due date. A late fee of 10% of the account balance up to $25 per month will be assessed on all past due accounts.

If a student, faculty, or staff fails to pay in full or make acceptable payment arrangements with the Student Accounting Services Office within 90 days of the original due date, they may be subject to additional fees including collection costs, legal fees, and any other expenses incurred by the university in collection of, or attempting to collect the obligation.

Student Financial Agreement (TA V 110)

By registering for one or more classes for the 2023-2024 academic year, I agree to pay any and all charges on my student account. I promise to pay Eastern Kentucky University the full amount of the obligation by the due date. I also understand and agree to pay any and all fees incurred should I default on my student account, including the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33.33% of the debt. Should my failure to pay result in litigation, I agree to pay the attorney fees which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 40% of the debt. I also understand that once my account is sent to a collection agency, interest may be charged to the outstanding balance including fees. I have also reviewed the refund deadlines found at Colonels Compass prior to dropping a class and I understand that I may be responsible for fees associated with class withdrawal if I fall below full time status. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
