Understanding Your Bill

Main Content


View your bill on Salukinet now!

Your most recent SIUC Ebill is available on SalukiNet (salukinet.siu.edu).
Students bills can be found under the 'MyFinances' tab on the left hand side in the My Statement channel. For the most recent statement, click the envelope icon in the upper right hand corner of the box. For older statements or to view your account summary or payment history, click the 'Statement and Payment History' link.

  1. Statement Date
    The statement reflects payments, charges, and credits posted to the account through the workday preceding the statement date.
  2. Payment Due Date
    The date by which payment must be received unless you enroll in the payment plan. This may prevent a late payment charge. In addition, your balance needs to be $1500 or less in order to make registration changes.
  3. Bursar Web Site
    In addition to on-line payment options, you may access account information, the billing calendar, tuition and fee schedules, tax incentive information, links to other campus departments, and much more.
  4. Billing Address
    You are responsible for maintaining a current address and may update your address on SalukiNet. Failure to receive a statement does not relieve you of the responsibility of timely payment of current amounts due.
  5. Charges / Adjustments
    Typical charges a student might expect to see on their statement of account (amounts are estimated).
  6. Fees
    These are mandatory fees charged as a condition of enrollment. The Student Insurance fee and the Student to Student fee are the only 2 fees which are considered refundable. You may view the individual fees and information regarding those fees by accessing the Tuition/Fees Schedule.
  7. Tuition
    Tuition rates are assessed by the Registration office according to the number of credit hours, and when you register for classes. The online tuition calculator can be used to estimate your tuition and fees.
  8. Credits / Payments
    Typical credits a first-time student might expect to see on their July statement of account (amounts are estimated).
  9. Previous Billed Balance
    This is the student's past due balance from the last billing statement.
  10. Billing Message
    Shown after the details of the statement, this message denotes payment and late charge information, as well as other information pertaining to your account.
  11. Total Due
    This reflects the total due on the student's bursar account as of the statement date. If the total amount due is not paid in full by the due date, then your account is considered past-due and you will have a Bursar Hold (BH) on your account. No transcripts or diplomas will be released until the past-due balance is paid in full. If the total due is in parenthesis, this indicates a credit balance which could potentially be refunded to you. You will need to check your direct deposit information on SalukiNet to verify your checking or savings account.
  12. Authorized Financial Aid
    This is an estimate of your financial aid that is scheduled for disbursement. It is pending financial aid to be disbursed, and has been subtracted from your total due.
  13. Legacy Alternate Tuition Rate
    Students receiving a Legacy Tuition Discount will see this notation on their statement. If you have submitted the necessary documentation and do not see this, please follow up with the Registrar.   More information can be found here: https://siu.edu/legacy/
