New 'e' services for students coming next week

The bursar’s office is offering new electronic services to students effective next Monday (April 6).

Beginning in April, all monthly bursar statement notifications will be sent electronically to students’ BGSU email addresses. At the same time, BGSU’s enhanced ePayment Web site will offer payment services, payment search and payment history, and students can enroll in eRefund for financial aid disbursements that overpay their bursar account.
    
Monthly paper billing statements will no longer be mailed. Instead, the email notification will inform students that their electronic statement, or eBill, is available to view on mybgsu.edu.

Students may authorize parents or others to receive the same electronic notification by email, view the eBill and make electronic payment. To authorize a parent or guest, students may log on to mybgsu.edu, click on Bursar Bill View/Pay and follow the link to Parent PINs. Once authorized, a parent may access the student’s eBill any time to see current bursar account activity and monthly billing statements at https://commerce.cashnet.com/bgsupay.

Monthly statements are generated on the 5th of each month and are due on the 25th. While paper statements will no longer be mailed, they can be printed from the student’s mybgsu account.

ePayment is quick and convenient. To make an electronic payment to a BGSU bursar account, students can access Bursar Bill View/Pay through the mybgsu.edu portal. Authorized parents/guests will be able to make payment via the https://commerce.cashnet.com/bgsupay Web site. Payments can be made using a MasterCard or Discover credit/debit card, or a checking or savings account. Credit and debit card transactions are subject to a nonrefundable convenience-fee charge based on, and in addition to, the payment amount.

With eRefund, students will no longer have to wait in line for a refund check.
They will log on to their mybgsu.edu account, click on Bursar Bill View/Pay and follow the link to eRefund to enroll their bank account for direct deposit. The enrollment must occur at least 10 business days before the first anticipated refund.

For more information about the new services, contact the bursar’s office at 2-2815 or bursar@bgsu.edu, or check the Web site at www.bgsu.edu/offices/bursar.
