All Nursing courses will charge an additional $90 per credit hour.

Many courses offered by the College of Business will charge an additional $50 per credit hour. 

Fines are assessed by numerous areas on campus which include the Office of Student Accountability and Resorative Practices (OSARP), Libraries & Educational Technology, Parking Services, Athletics, and the Office of Residence Life. Fines from Parking Services are held for 30 days, and if unpaid, are transferred to UBO to be posted to the student account. All fines create an immediate hold on the student account and must be paid in full to have the hold released. Fines can be paid by mailing a check; making a payment by check, FLEX or cash at the cashier counter in the Student Success Center during business hours; or at our payment page with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) or electronic check payment.
