Email from OU asking for passport/residence/immigration status

Hello,
I have recently received an email from an address that claims to be OU student finances and they want to assess if i am paying the right fees to them and they need my passport, residence info and immigration status.
I have asked OU if they sent such an email to me on friday but no answer since. I am a bit confused as i provided all that info with student finance already and i just want to confirm if this is a legit email or a scam attempt.
Also OU if you see this please add a notification onto our OU accounts whenever you send an email to us so it's easier to distinct legit email from scam attempts.

There is a way to find out whether that was a legitimate or fake email by logging into student home

OU can still require this info from you. SFE may not disclose all of the information, hence why they may be attempting to contact you. If in doubt, give them a call.
