There is no fee, no charge to make a payment on a student's account. Using MasterCard, VISA, a checking account, or a savings account, friends and family can make payments on an SOU student's account. After entering the student's information, you will be transferred to a USBank®/Anexsys® site to complete the transaction.

What student information is needed to make a payment? You will need the student's first name, last name, birth date, and student ID number. Because the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, prevents Southern Oregon University from discussing a student's account with anyone except the student (unless written consent is on file), you must contact the student for the information you need. If you have questions regarding FERPA, contact the Enrollment Services Center at 541-552-6600.  Or alternatively, print a FERPA release form, obtain the student's consent by having the student sign the form, and return it to SOU Enrollment Services, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland, OR 97520. 

There are several options for your convenience. As the payor, you can make a single payment, or you can set up recurring payments. You can pay as a registered or unregistered user. If you decide to register, you can receive online confirmations, view payment history, manage account information, and set up recurring payments. To register, you must provide your (payor) name, phone number, and mailing address. Unregistered payors must provide each time they pay their name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address.

You will receive a confirmation e-mail. Both registered and unregistered payors can provide an e-mail address and request an e-mail confirming payment. However, the confirmation e-mail does not display the name of the student account that will receive the payment. Be sure to print out the confirmation screen for your records before exiting the USBank®/Anexsys® site.

What about recurring payments? Registered payors can set up recurring payments weekly, every two weeks, two times a month, each month, each quarter. You can edit/change your recurring payments at any time.


  1. Make sure the payor address you provide matches the address on file with your credit card company
  2. There is a lag time of 1 to 3 business days from the time you make an online payment to the time that payment posts to the student's account at Southern Oregon University (see chart below). If a payment deadline is missed because of this delay, late fees may be assessed.
  3. In the event of insufficient funds, a fee of $29 will be charged to the student's account.
  4. We strongly urge you to print the USBank®/Anexsys® confirmation screen for your records, even if you have chosen to receive a confirmation e-mail. This screen is the ONLY record you will have of the name of the Southern Oregon University student account receiving this payment.
