Payment of Fees

Student Accounts-Payment of Fees

First time students will be notified by Admissions to make a $100 down payment due by May 1 to be applied toward fall fees.  The down-payment is required to hold your space in the fall classes. When you receive the first bill, you will have the option to sign up to pay the rest of your fees under the Truman Flexible Payment Plan described below.  Students who do not enroll in the Flexible Payment Plan will pay fees in full by the end of the first week of classes.

Actual charges may include enrollment fees as well as parking decals, lab fees, housing accommodations, and/or special class fees.  Graduate courses are assessed at a higher rate. Combinations of graduate and undergraduate hours are assessed separately. Summer terms are also assessed separately.  Books are not included on the student account.


The first bill for fall is sent as a paper bill and is posted on-line. Students and their Authorized Users are e-mailed when the on-line bill is available for viewing (see below for instructions on how to set-up Authorized Users).  After the first fall bill, no paper bills are sent.  All bills after the first bill for the semester are posted on-line with e-mail notices sent to all students and Authorized Users.

In order to allow parent(s)/others access to a student’s bill and student account information, the student must set them up as an Authorized User If the student does not set parent(s)/others up as an Authorized User, the parent(s)/others will not have access to the student’s bill or student account information online, over the phone or via email. Students can designate Authorized Users by following these instructions:

  1. Go to and log-in.  Click Student in the Tools section.
  2. Click Student Finances & Student Employment.
  3. In the Student Finances section, click on Student Account Suite.
  4. Click on My Profile and then Authorized Users.
  5. Follow the instructions to enter email addresses for parents/others who need access to on-line bills.

Authorized Users are sent an e-mail notification of passwords and log-ins.  They are also notified by e-mail when a new bill is posted or when they make a payment through the website.  Authorized Users are limited to viewing only the bill and do not have access to other student information on TruView.

Payment Plans Available

Standard Payment Plan:

This is the default payment plan if you do not sign up for the Truman Flexible Payment Plan. The Standard Plan means that all the semester’s fees, including housing, if applicable, are due in full by the end of the first week of classes for each semester.  If fees are not paid in full by the end of the first week of classes, your account becomes past due and will begin to accrue interest at 9% per annum (.75% per month).  A $75 late fee will be assessed if fees are not paid in full by November 15 for the fall semester, April 15 for the spring semester, and July 5 for summer terms.

Truman Flexible Payment Plan:

View Flexible Payment Plan Brochure (PDF)

The flexible payment plan requires your bill to be paid in four monthly payments. Interest accrues monthly on the unpaid balance.

  • Fall due dates are: first payment is due the first Friday of fall classes, second payment is due September 15, third is due October 15, and fourth is due November 15.
  • Spring due dates are: first payment is due the first Friday of spring classes, second payment is due February 15, third is due March 15, and fourth is due on April 15.

One-fourth (25%) of total fees owed for the semester are due by the first due date.  If you pay on the Flexible Payment Plan, we strongly encourage you to divide the balance that will not be paid by Financial Aid by four to calculate an estimated minimum amount to pay on each of the four due dates.  You may “pay ahead” on your budgeted Flexible Payment Plan if you like.  Under this plan, interest at 6% per annum (.5% per month) is charged on the unpaid balance on each bill after the first bill.  You can sign up for the Flexible Payment Plan online by following these instructions:

  1. Go to and click on Student in the Tools section.
  2. Click on Student Finances & Student Employment.
  3. In the Student Finances section click on Flexible Payment Plan Agreement.
  4. Read the agreement thoroughly and print to retain a copy of the agreement.
  5. Click I Agree at the bottom of the page.

Avoid interest assessment by paying the balance in full by the first due date.  A $75 late fee will be incurred on balances not paid by November 15 for the fall semester, April 15 for the spring semester, and July 5 for summer terms.

State of Missouri Debt Offset Program:

The Debt Offset Program is designed to facilitate the collection of debts owed by an individual to an agency in the State of Missouri. Truman State University receives state appropriations, therefore is an agent of the state. Non-enrolled debtors with a balance outstanding of 90 days or longer will be reported to the Missouri Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue will notify the taxpayer that the amount owed to the University has been deducted from the individual’s State income tax return and forward the amount collected to the University so it may be applied to their past due balance.

The debtor may contact the Business Office to speak with a Student Account Representative or Supervisor for additional information regarding his/her account.

The program gives the debtor the right to file a written protest to the Business Office. The appeal must be in writing and submitted within 30 days of the date of the Debt Offset Notification letter the University sends to the debtor. The following information must be included in the appeal:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your social security number
  • Type of debt in dispute
  • Detailed statement of all reasons you disagree with the debt amount or dispute that the debt is owed.
Mail the protest to: 
Truman State University 
McClain Hall 105 
100 E Normal Ave 
Kirksville, MO 63501

The Debtor waives their right to protest if he/she fails to file a written request within 30 days.
