The deposit amount will be included in your fee statement. The deposit will be applied after your fees are paid in full. If you are paying with the TOPP plan, your deposit will be applied after the first payment. Your deposit will be assessed every term you are enrolled during the academic year. If you wish to discontinue your deposit, phone or write to BuckID Card Services.
Cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover deposits are accepted at BuckID Card Services. If you mail a check, be sure to include the student's OSU ID number and allow extra processing time if you want the money available prior to the start of an academic term. A deposit envelope is not required.
