The University has a student invoicing system, which provides specific and complete information about all charges, payments, and authorized deferments. It also displays the various student status information used to determine the bill. Highlights of the system are outlined below:
1. Students will receive statements of account each semester until the account is paid in full. The first statement will be mailed to the permanent address before the beginning of the fall semester. Tuition, fees, and other University charges assessed on the first account statement will be due upon receipt and are considered late if not received by the penalty date appearing on the statement. Payment is expected by the due date even though a student may not have attained full‑time status during registration.
2. Each account statement will list the amount due the University. Any unpaid charges from the previous statement will be brought forward, and additional charges, payment, and credits will be shown. The statement will also include in the calculation of the amount due any authorized deferment. These include TAP and tuition waivers. Students must provide the Office of Student Accounts with proof of the receipt of such an award prior to the statement penalty date in order to deduct the award from their amount due. All charges not covered by deferments must be paid by the due date.
Continuing students who do not pre-register and therefore do not receive the first bill of any semester will be charged a late fee. This fee is nonnegotiable and must be paid.
A late processing fee will be charged to any student attempting to register for the first time on or after the FIRST DAY OF CLASS. This fee will apply to all students including those who receive late admission to the University. Failure to pay the amount due by the penalty date will result in the automatic assessment of a late‑ payment fee of $30 per billing. This fee is nonnegotiable and must be paid.
Students should apply early for any financial aid that they expect to use to pay their University bills. Students who submit completed applications for student loans by the deadline date will not be subject to the late fees if the loan amount meets or exceeds the current balance due.
University bills are sent to the permanent address that is on file with the Records and Registration Office. It is the student's responsibility to keep the address correct. FAILURE TO RECEIVE A BILL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AS A REASON TO WAIVE THE LATE PAYMENT FEE.
Students who pay their bill in full (resulting in a zero balance) will not receive any further communication from the Office of Student Accounts in the next billing pass.
