Billing

Accessing your MSU student account

Enrolled students may view tuition, waiver, and payment itemization online under “Account Detail” at STUINFO.

Visit the MSU Office of the Comptroller's help index page for helpful information about student accounts. You may call Student Receivables at 800-775-4323 toll free (or at 517-355-3343) with any billing questions.

Electronic billing

Tuition statements are only available electronically in STUINFO and are not mailed. The billing system will automatically send an email notification to the student's MSU email address when a bill is ready to be viewed online, so be sure to check your MSU email regularly.

Billing schedule

Tuition statements are posted in STUIFNO about six to eight weeks before the beginning of each semester. Students receive an email to their MSU email account when statements are ready to view. Students are given two weeks after the tuition statement is posted, or two weeks after enrollment, to make payment arrangements.

Payment methods  

Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express payments are accepted online through STUINFO. A credit card convenience fee will be charged. Other payment options are available including money order, U.S. check, ACH and wire transfer.

Third-party tuition payment/invoice authorization

If a student has a third-party sponsor, such as an employer, and needs to have tuition billed in the name of the employer instead of the student, please read the third-party payment instructions PDF and contact Mary Anne Verleger at iflr@anr.msu.edu for assistance. 

Each student account must be paid with a separate check or money order and corresponding payment coupon. Paying multiple accounts with one check or money order will result in the payment being applied to only one account and a possible drop of classes or additional fees charged to the other accounts.

International student health insurance waiver

All international students are required to carry health insurance and will be automatically enrolled in Aetna Student Health. Students may apply to waive this insurance in certain situations. 

International students taking courses online who live outside the United States may request a waiver of the international student health insurance fee without proof of health insurance from Elaine Smith (smit2153@ctlr.msu.edu) or Laurie Schlenke (schlenke@ctlr.msu.edu).  

International students living within the United States, who hold a different health insurance policy, may request a waiver of the health insurance fee. Request a waiver through your STUINFO account under the “Other” tab, and “Insurance Waiver.” Do this early to ensure that you submit your health insurance policy by the required date. A waiver will be granted if your existing policy meets the requisite minimum coverage. The waiver will show under “Account Detail” in STUINFO.
