Direct Payment Options

1. Paypal. Use the "send money" feature on your paypal account at www.paypal.com. This feature is ideal for the Application Fee only. Registration and Balance payments require an additional handling and processing fee that is charged by PaypalSend fee amount to quetzil@osea-cite.org . Please review the paypal fee that you need to add to your payment of Registration Fee and Balance.

2. Checks. For Registration Fee and Payment of Balance. Send a personal check, money order or cashier's check payable to “OSEA” mailed to:
Quetzil Castañeda
Director, OSEA
2244 Martha Street
Bloomington, IN 47408

3. Direct wire transfer (bank to bank) or electronic deposit can be arranged for an additional $25 fee. Please check "Pay Options" tab to find current service fee. Wire transfers require prior arrangments with the OSEA Director of at least one day.

Late Payment of Balance must be paid with Direct Wire Transfer and the total amount must iinclude the amount overdue plus the direct wire transfer fee and the applicable late fees.


4. PopMoney. The OSEA use of PopMoney is new starting spring 2015. This service is similar to PayPal, but has lower sending and receiving fees. The additional charge is $2 per payment. Popmoney is therefore ideal for the payment of the Registration Fee. Due to PopMoney limits on the amount that can be sent in one day, the payment of the balance of tuition and fees would require two payments made over a two day period. Please visit www.popmoney.com now to set up your account.


5. Online Bank Bill Payment. Using your own online bill payment service that your bank offers you can make a direct payment to OSEA for either or both of the Registration Fee and Payment of Balance. To do this requires a minimum of 14 days advance arrangement. You will need to have the OSEA bank information communicated to you by phone in order to set up this payment. There is no additional fee for payments made via your Bank's Online Bill Payment Service.

 


Note on Use of Paypal:
PayPal payment is not always available for programs and is not recommended for payment of registration fee and tuition balance. If you choose to pay by paypal any charges other than the application fee, you will be charged an additional handling and processing service fee. If you select paypal as payment method you will need to calculate this additional fee amount and it to the amount of the payment. This fee amount is significantly higher than the cost of a direct wire tansfer.

Please check this information for additional handling fees associated with Paypal payments
