The Office of Bursar and Loan Administration is responsible for the billing, collecting, and depositing of all money owed to and/or collected by Ball State University, in addition to setting up and maintaining Cardinal Cash accounts.  We also prepare the federal tax form 1098-T.  The Bursar's office enforces Proxy permissions for parents and others seeking specific information regarding student accounts.

IMPORTANT:  Due to system maintenance this weekend (5/25/18-5/29/18), Student, Authorized, and Guest Payers may make a payment but will not see an updated balance until the system comes back up Tuesday.  Students: Please NOTE - you will have to make a payment using the Guest Payer option during this time frame as SSB will not be available. Thank you for your patience as we upgrade our system to better serve you.

Please access the eBill site for instructions on how students, authorized payers, or guest payers can make payments, as well as instructions for students to add an authorized payer to their account.

In order to comply with regulations that protect the students' identity, Bursar and Loan Administration will require students to grant access to parents (or others) through a new privacy system in order for us to discuss the student's financial information.
