See Student Fees and Charges below for current figures.
Payment of Tuition and Fees
Student accounts are billed each semester. Tuition statements are sent out electronically, and an e-mail is sent each time a bill is issued. Current account information – including charges, payments, and refund amounts – is available online at ysu.edu/viewmybill. Tuition statements may also be printed from this sit
Students are expected to have their student accounts in a paid status prior to attending the first class meeting for a term. In order to have a student account in a "paid status," students must be either paid in full for the term or officially signed up and paid the first payment on the approved payment plan. Late and/or partial payments are subject to late payment fee assessment.
You are strongly encouraged to pay your bill online at ysu.edu/viewmybill.
You may also make payment:
* in person at the payment windows on the second floor of Meshel Hall. Cashier Hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
*via the payment drop box also located on the second floor of Meshel Hall (check only, no cash) or
*by mail to: Youngstown State University, Attention Office of University Bursar, One University Plaza, Youngstown, OH 44555 (check only, please do not mail cash). Please make checks payable to Youngstown State University.
You may pay by online by echeck (no additional charge) or with Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. Effective July 1, 2012, there is a 2.75% convenience fee minimum of $3.00 for payments made by credit card.
If you deliver a check in person, mail it, or place it in the payment drop box, you authorize us to convert that check to an electronic Automated Clearing House (ACH) transaction. That check will then appear on your monthly bank statement as an Electronic Debit. If you do not wish to have your paper check converted to an ACH, you must present it in person or select an alternative payment method (for instance, credit card).
A payment plan is also available that will allow you to spread your payments out over a longer period. Payment plan enrollment must be processed online and requires an initial payment at the time of enrollment. There is a fee for enrollment in the payment plan, and late payments are subject to late payment fee assessment.
Students are solely responsible for timely payment of their tuition and fees. In the event that the account becomes past due, the University reserves the right to withhold services (e.g., transcripts, diplomas, registration, and other University services) until the past-due balance is paid in full. If full payment cannot be obtained, then the delinquent balance must be turned over to the Ohio Attorney General's Collection Enforcement Office for collection and it will be reported to the Credit Bureau. Once an account becomes delinquent, the student will be required to pay in advance of registering for subsequent terms. An account turned over to the Attorney General will incur interest and collection expenses which must be paid before any of the adverse sanctions can be removed.
Your enrollment at the University creates a contract between you and YSU. If you choose not to attend the University, you must officially withdraw from all courses by the 14th day to receive 100% refund or reduction of charges (see refund policy below). All days of the week are counted, including weekends and holidays, to determine the 14th day. Please be advised that all University offices are not open on weekends and holidays; thus, online withdrawal may be required.
If you decide to withdraw from the University once you have enrolled, you must access the registration functions through the MyYSU Portal.
The Board of Trustees of Youngstown State University has pledged to make every effort to keep the required fees as low as is consistent with providing quality education. It is intended that fees not be adjusted more often than annually and that fee changes be announced in the spring or early summer. The Board of Trustees does, however, reserve the right to change any fee, charge, or fine without notice if conditions warrant.
See Students Fees and Charges. An explanation of each follows.
The sum of the instructional fee, the general fee, and the information services fee constitutes tuition.
This fee is assessed to all students each term. The rate is per academic semester hour of credit for one to 12 credits or for more than 18 credits; it is a flat rate for students registering for 12 to 18 credits during one term. Students registering for 18 or more credits pay the flat rate plus the per-credit rate for each credit over 18. This fee supplements the state subsidy and is a source of revenue for the University's educational and general fund.
Students may audit courses (i.e., register to take a course without receiving credit). The fee for auditing a course is the same as if the course were taken for credit.
This fee is also assessed to all students each term; the rate depends upon the number of credits registered for. This fee is for non-instructional services such as Kilcawley Center, intercollegiate athletics, intramural sports, performing artists and lecture programs, student government..
Non-Resident Tuition Surcharges
As noted above, all students pay the instructional fee, the general fee, and the information services fee. Those students who are not legal residents of Ohio must pay a surcharge in addition. Students who are residents of the Affordable Tuition Advantage area pay a lesser surcharge than do students who are legal residents of other states and/or areas. The Affordable Tuition Advantage area includes the counties of Chautauqua, New York; Armstrong, Clarion, Fayette, Forest, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, and Warren counties in Pennsylvania; and Brooke, Hancock, Marshall, and Ohio counties in West Virginia. Also included Pennsylvania counties of: Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Crawford, Erie, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, Washington, and Westmoreland.
Information Services Fee
This fee is charged to all students each term. It is applied on a per-credit basis to provide information technology infrastructure and services across campus, including the new Student Information Systems, wireless connectivity, classroom technology, and a continuous strengthening and securing of the computing and networking environment. It provides support for technology enhancements and initiatives contained within the IT Master Plan, supporting the vision to keep pace with an evolving, interactive, student-centered and collaborative electronic learning environment.
Course Book and Supply Fee
This fee represents the cost for an eBook used in designated course(s). This fee is non-refundable after the 100% tuition refund period and cannot be appealed.
This fee is designed to recognize the differential cost of instruction among colleges. Examples of use include research instrumentation, enhanced teaching equipment, specialized software, specialized information resources (databases), maintenance and repair of capital equipment, technical and laboratory personnel support, and lab and instructional space upgrades.
Credit by Examination Fee
A fee is charged for each course for an individual examination provided by an academic department to determine whether a student can be given academic credit for his or her knowledge of the course material. The fee must be paid before the test can be taken. This fee is charged on a per-credit basis.
This nonrefundable fee is assessed when students apply to graduate to cover costs associated with graduation. If a student defers graduation and has paid the fee, the payment remains valid for the two academic terms following the term of application. Should a student graduate with more than one degree at a time, the fee will only be charged once.
GRADUATE CONSORTIAL PROGRAM MFA
The Northeastern Ohio Universities Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is offered in a consortium of the four public universities of Northeast Ohio: the University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, and Youngstown State University. The partnership program aligns with the missions of all four institutions to offer graduate programs that meet clearly defined regional needs. The hourly tuition rate is calculated annually based on the highest general fund and the highest instructional fee between the four institutions, approved by the fiscal representatives, and approved by the boards of trustees at each institution. The tuition collected supports the administration and the instructional offerings of the program through a revenue sharing model.
GRADUATE CONSORTIAL PROGRAM Mph
The Consortium of Eastern Ohio Master of Public Health (CEOMPH) Program is a provided cooperatively by the University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Northeast Ohio Medical University, and Youngstown State University. Rates of current graduate students for each partner, the rates of other MPH programs and annual increases are considered each year.

COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS INSTRUCTIONAL FEE
Fees for CCP are aligned with the state of Ohio’s default CCP tuition structure. The fee the district pays to YSU is calculated based upon a percentage of the State ADM, which is paid to the district by the State of Ohio. There is a "floor", "middle", and "ceiling". At YSU, the State default floor is the charge for classes taught in the high school by credentialed high school teachers. The middle rate is for classes taught at the high school by paid YSU faculty. The ceiling is the tuition for classes taught online or on campus. The fee is usually paid by the school district if the course is taken for both high school and college credit, though there are exceptions. If the student only wants college credit, they self-pay.
YOUNGSTOWN EARLY COLLEGE

Reduction/Refund of Fees and Charges Upon Withdrawal
To withdraw from a single course, or from all courses (complete withdrawal), it is necessary to access the registration functions online via the MyYSU Portal – Registration. It is the student's responsibility to confirm that the withdrawal was correctly processed, and the course(s) is (are) deleted. Nonattendance of class, or notification to the instructor or department, does not constitute official withdrawal.
Effective Summer 2009, if a student is permitted to withdraw from the University or if a student reduces his or her academic load, a refund of the tuition charge, and the nonresident tuition surcharge, where applicable, shall be made in conformity with the following schedule for regularly scheduled courses:
|Length of Course||100% Refund||No Reduction of Charges|
|Fall and Spring Term Only|
|6 weeks or more||thru the 14th day1||15th day and later1|
|Less than 6 weeks||15% of course duration||greater than 15% of course duration|
|Summer Term(s) Only||thru the 7th day||8th day or after|
Since access to registration/change of registration is now available online 24/7, every day of the week is counted (including weekends and holidays) when calculating tuition refunds. Be advised that University offices are not open most weekends and/or on holidays. Therefore, online withdrawal may be required.
Note: For a complete withdrawal from any term, all applicable fees, fines, and penalties will be deducted from any refunds. If fees were paid by scholarship, loan or grant-in-aid, the appropriate credit will be issued to the fund from which the initial payment was made. Student accounts paid with financial aid may be subject to a financial aid repayment. No refunds will be issued until after the 15th day of the term.
If the student withdraws after the prescribed time limits (as indicated above), all tuition and other applicable fees and charges are forfeited.
If fees were paid by scholarship, loan or grant-in-aid, the appropriate credit is issued to the fund from which the initial payment was made. Refunds are calculated for Title IV recipients who completely withdraw during the first 60% of the semester.
Title IV financial aid funds are awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance was awarded. If a student completely withdraws on or before the 60% point in time of the period of enrollment, calculated using calendar days, a portion of the federal aid awarded (Federal Pell, SEOG, Perkins Loans, Direct Loans, and PLUS Loans – but not Federal Work Study) may need to be returned according to the provisions of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998. This recalculation may result in the student's owing a balance to Youngstown State University and/or the federal Department of Education.
Any withdrawal, or reduction in academic hours after the schedule outlined above will not be entitled to a reduction of charges and/or refund unless an Application for Involuntary Withdrawal is submitted and approved by the Fees and Charges Appeal Board. All decisions made by this board are final and binding.
If a student withdraws for reasons beyond his or her control (e.g., illness, military service, job transfer, or shift change imposed by the employer that creates a direct conflict with the class schedule), the fee charges may be reduced in proportion to the number of weeks enrolled, upon submission and approval of an application for involuntary withdrawal.
An application for involuntary withdrawal can be processed only for courses in which the student has already received a grade of "W" (withdrawn). Applications for involuntary withdrawal will be considered only for terms falling within the immediately preceding one-year time period (3 semesters). Appeals pertaining to terms beyond this one-year time limit will not be accepted. All applications for involuntary withdrawal must be documented, and are processed only by mail on forms provided by Office of University Bursar. Address such correspondence to:

Title IV Credit Balance Refunds
Title IV students who meet all eligibility requirements at least 10 days before the start of a payment period and whose funds could have been disbursed and those disbursed funds would have created a Title IV credit balance will receive a refund no later than the seventh day of the payment period. The amount of the refund will be the lesser of the amount of the presumed credit balance or the amount needed to purchase books and supplies as determined by Youngstown State University. Refunds are sent as direct deposit to the student's bank account. A direct deposit profile must be set up via the MyYSU portal. Checks to the current address will be sent if no direct deposit is set up.
