E-mail is the official means of communication at IU, and students are responsible for reading the content of e-mail sent from the Office of the Bursar.
Indiana University advanced to all-electronic billing in July 2005. Students and 3rd Part Users are sent e-mail notifications when a new bill is generated and have access to the statements much faster than paper bills were available, providing greater time for remitting payment by the due date (whether paying electronically or by mail).
Beginning with the 2005-06 academic year, paper bills ceased to be generated for bursar account activity. All students are sent an e-mail to their IU e-mail address when the monthly bill is available on the web. In addition any authorized payer created by the student has the option of being sent these bill notifications.
Failure to receive the e-mail notification of a bill will not be accepted as a reason for missing any payment deadline.
