Billing and Payments
Billing statements are available online for both the student and any person the student authorizes. Semester billing statements are available approximately six weeks prior to the start of each semester. Payments are due as follows: Fall semester by the first business day of August, Spring semester by the first business day of January, and all Summer and Winter Sessions five days prior to the start of classes. Students that register late may not receive an invoice before the applicable due date. Late registration does not excuse the student from satisfying financial obligations by the announced semester due dates. Students registering after the announced semester due date should be prepared to satisfy their financial obligations at the time of registration. Accounts not settled by the due date are subject to a late payment fee. Students that have not satisfied their financial obligations by the first day of classes are subject to having their registration revoked.
Persons desiring a payment plan can elect participation in the university’s educational payment plan which provides for the payment of tuition, room, and board over four payments per semester. Deadlines to participate are the first business day of August for Fall Semester and the first business day of January for Spring Semester.
Students attending the university under a provision with a state board of assistance or with financial aid from other outside agencies must provide complete information to the Bursar’s Office if assistance is to be recognized to avoid late payment fees.
