OU Electronic Statement

All course-related charges, except those for textbooks, lab kits, and other instructional course materials purchased through the CIDL Online Bookstore, are charged to your OU Bursar account. Access your Bursar account using Electronic Statement (E-statement), the official method of billing at the University of Oklahoma that can be reached through

With E-statement, paper bills will not be mailed. There is a 1.5% service charge per month ($0.50 minimum) computed on the prior month's ending balance minus credits and other payments received. The service charge will be assessed on the first working day after the 21st of each month and is charged against the total unpaid account balance. An additional penalty of $50.00 will be assessed at the end of the semester if all current tuition and fees have not been paid in full.

Pay Bill

If you have already initialized your OU online access account (which utilizes your OUNet ID as username) and assigned a password, please go to, log in, and click on the Pay Bill link represented by the large green dollar sign ($) to pay your bill. If you have not set up your OUNet ID account and password, follow the steps outlined below.

Step 1: Go to OUNet Account Management System: or On this page click the link on the right for setting up new accounts: "New Users: Activate your account here." Your OUNet ID should be the first four letters of your last name—or your last name if it is four letters or less—plus the last four digits of your Sooner ID, combined and with no space between. The OUNet ID is also referred to as "4 + 4" or "4 by 4." When logging in to campus online systems it may be called simply "username."

Step 2: Follow the steps on the website to set up your password.

Step 3: Once your password has been established, go to and log in.

Step 4: Click on the Pay Bill link represented by the large green dollar sign ($) to pay your bill.

If you have any problems with the OUNet Account Management System, please call (405) 325-HELP or (405) 325-4357 for assistance. This is the phone number for the main campus information technology help line.
