Ouachita Pre-bill

Fall 2023 Billing and Payment Information

Information regarding your bill for the upcoming semester is now available for you to view on the Ouachita web portal: info.obu.eduTo access your bill, select MENU at the top left corner of the portal. Scroll down to the FINANCIAL SECTION, and select PRE-BILL DISPLAY. Your pre-bill will populate each semester after you preregister for class. It will remain available until you complete online check-in for the semester. Once classes begin, your pre-bill will go away and you can view your charges under the FINANCIAL SECTION of your portal, under ACCOUNT BALANCE.

PAY ONLINE: We encourage you to make your payments online through your Info portal.

DUE DATE: Payment arrangements must be made prior to the start of each semester. We offer two payment plan options:

    1. Pay your account balance in full at the beginning of each semester.
    2. Pay each semester’s balance in five (5) monthly installments.
  • Accounts not paid in full by the first class day of the semester will automatically be placed on a monthly payment plan. A $35 payment plan fee will be charged each semester that you use this option. The first payment is due by Aug. 11, 2023, and subsequent payments are due the 15th of each following month. Monthly statements will be posted to your Info portal on the 1st of each month, along with an email reminder to the student and parent.
  • All students will check-in online Aug. 9-11. Payment arrangements must be finalized during this process. Failing to complete on-line check in will result in loss of class schedule.
  • Late fees of $20 will be assessed for missed monthly payments.
  • Payments may be made online using e-check or by credit/debit cards. A service fee of 1.8% will be charged on Discover, Master Card and Visa cards. A service fee of 3.3% will be charged on American Express cards.
  • Student tuition accounts will adjust as changes are made to class schedules, housing and meal plans and as financial aid is finalized. The following can cause changes to your account:
    • Filing or updating a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) - Families are reminded that FAFSAs must be completed annually to determine eligibility for federal aid programs.
    • Accepting Student Loans - Loan amounts will be reflected on student accounts only after a student accepts their loan on the AWARD LETTER – ACCEPT OR DECLINE LOANS screen under the Financial Section of their portal.  
    • Changing a Meal Plan - Commuters may choose a meal plan option through the pre-billing screen.
    • Charging Books - Books purchased through Ouachita’s bookstore may be charged to the student’s tuition account from July 24 to Aug. 18. Book charges should post to the student’s tuition account within two weeks of purchase. We encourage families to purchase books during tax-free weekend, Aug. 5-6.
  • Credit refunds will be issued beginning Aug. 25.

PARENT PORTAL REMINDER: Set up Parent access to the student portal at info.obu.edu. Under MENU, MY ACCOUNTS, select PARENT PORTAL SETTINGS. Giving a parent access to the student’s portal allows the parent to log in to make payments, view financial aid, and view grades. It also gives permission from the student for Ouachita faculty and staff to speak to the parent about the students financial aid, balance, and grades.

Student Account representatives are available to assist you with questions related to your account by calling 870-245-5570 or by emailing [email protected]. If you reach our voicemail, please leave your contact information and we will return your call.
