ISU HOUSING PAYMENT POLICY

Residence Halls

Residence hall and meal plan payments are due by the dates as established in the tuition and fee schedule for ISU, unless the resident is paying through ISU's installment loan program. For students not using the installment loan program a $50 late fee is assessed on amounts not paid by Monday of the first week of classes. Another $50 late fee is assessed if fees are not paid by the tenth day of class. Late fees will only be waived upon approval of the Director of Housing.

During the second week of the semester no-shows and meal plans will be processed and charges will be adjusted accordingly.

Payment plans may be accepted, but only when all awarded financial aid has been exhausted, including Pell grants, scholarships, subsidized loans, unsubsidized loans, Parent Plus loans, etc.

If the meal plan is not paid in full, and the student is not using an ISU installment loan, the meal plan will be deactivated until paid in full. The full meal plan price must be paid whether the meal plan is active or inactive.

If housing and/or meal plan charges are not paid in full by the time they are due, and no payment arrangements have been made, action may be taken up to and including eviction.

For information about setting up a payment plan (installment loan) with the University, see the section titled "Student Financial Services" at the Finance & Administration homepage.

Apartments

Rent is due on the first day of each month. Unpaid rent will be assessed a fee of $25.00 on the sixth day of each month and $25.00 each week until paid.

Any resident receiving finanical aid who has been past due in the previous semester’s charges may be required to pay the next semester's rent in full before the beginning of the semester. 

Eviction proceedings begin on the twenty-fifth day of the month for which rent is not paid.
