ASU faculty, staff and students

  • In order to assure that your library fine is paid, it is preferred that you pay the total charges currently due and bring your Student Accounts Receivable balance to zero.
  • Funds received by Accounts Receivable online are automatically allocated to the oldest charge present on your student account.
  • If there are any other charges pending (a parking fine or student health charge, for example) that predate your library fine, your funds will be allotted to those charges rather than paying your library fine.
  • If you have other ASU charges, it is best to pay in person at Cashiering Services.
