What is TouchNet?
TouchNet is an online portal the University of Southern Indiana offers for all students to view and pay their bills, setup payment plans, and sign up for eRefunds (direct deposit). Students may login through their myUSI and click on the TouchNet icon. By using TouchNet, students may also assign Authorized Users to have access to their account, setup payment plans, or view your 1098T.
What is the difference between my billing statement and the account activity?
The monthly billing statement is a snap shot of your account at a specific point in time. The Account Activity link will provide you with a current, real-time status of your account.
How do I enroll in a payment plan
The payment plan allows students or authorized users to pay the student’s bill in monthly, interest free installments. A $35 enrollment fee is required to enroll in the payment plan each semester. Students or authorized users may schedule payments to be automatically processed each month or setup reminders to pay by the due date each month (a 2.85% convenience fee will be assessed by the credit card processor). To enroll, log into TouchNet and click on "Enroll in Payment Plan." A $50 late payment fee will be assessed for payments received after the due date. There are no payment plan options for the summer terms.
How do I set up an Authorized User?
Students may setup authorized users to view their billing information and/or their student bill on his or her behalf. Please note this does not allow the authorized user to view the student’s academic records, course schedule, or other personal information. To assign an authorized user, the student must log into myUSI and click on the TouchNet icon. From the Student Account Homepage, click on “Authorized Users” on the right side and complete the information. The Authorized User will receive an email with instructions on how to log in and view your account.
How do Authorized Users log into TouchNet?
Authorized Users may log into TouchNet with his or her email address and password he or she created. If you are having difficulty logging in, you may have your password reset. Be sure to check your spam folder if the email does not appear in your inbox. To navigate to the login page, go to https://secure.touchnet.net/C21706_tsa/web
How can I make a payment online?
To make a payment, simply log into your myUSI account, click on the TouchNet icon to the left. From there you can setup an interest free monthly payment plan, make a credit card payment (a 2.85% convenience fee will be added by our credit card processor), or pay by ACH.
