Express Pay and Billing FAQs:

  1. What is Automated Billing and Payment Processing?
    Beginning Fall 2006, the University of Southern Indiana introduced USI Express Pay, an electronic system for all students to view their bills, print their bills and make payments online. Through the new USI Express Pay system, an email will be sent to each student's official University of Southern Indiana email address and any authorized payers' email address every time a new statement is ready.
  2. What is the difference between my monthly eBill and the account information I can see on My USI?.
    The monthly eBill is a web-based presentation of your student bill. It represents a snapshot in time of your monthly bill. In addition, it will also reflect account activity that has occurred since the billing statement was created.

    My USI displays your complete account history - it is updated continuously to display transactions that have occurred.
  3. What company has the University of Southern Indiana partnered with to provide this service?
    Nelnet is providing USI Express Pay, a hosted automatic billing and payment processing service. Our contract with them ensures that the processes are compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act.
  4. Is Nelnet's USI Express Pay website secure?

Students will Login to the University of Southern Indiana Express Pay website via My USI and select "Authorize Payer" on the navigation bar. Follow the online instructions to create a user name and temporary password for each authorized payer. (The temporary password must be changed by the authorized payer when he or she first logs in to the site.) Authorized payers will receive an automated email notification with the login name informing them that they have been authorized. The student will provide the password to the authorized payer. Each billing cycle, both the student and authorized payers will receive an email notifying them that the eBill has been sent. Students and authorized payers receive a link in their email that takes them directly to the USI Express Pay login page.
  14. How can my parents/authorized payer pay the bill?
    Once the authorized payer is established they can make payments through "Make Payment", an optional feature of our new system.

You will have the option to have the site retain your bank account information or you may enter it each time you make a payment. No one else will be able to view a payee's confidential account information, not even the student. In the interest of security and privacy, each authorized payer is assigned a separate PIN number to access their account and payment history. Authorized payers can print the bill and send a check or money order through the mail to our payment processing center (payable to the University of Southern Indiana with the student's USI ID printed clearly on the front of the check)
