Fees for coursework vary due to the student’s residency standing, undergraduate or graduate status, hours, and the applicability of any special fees charged in specific courses or programs. The total per-credit-hour fee rate commonly consists of the Educational fee, Information Technology Fee, the Student Facility, Activity, and Health Fee and any special course fees or parking permit fees. Detailed Information on fees and residency status can be found on the Cashier’s website.
It is the student’s responsibility that fees are paid and other financial obligations are met as they become due regardless of who is making the payments. Students who need assistance in meeting their financial obligations should contact the Financial Aid Office in a timely manner. Students are expected to check their University e-mail and review and respond to their monthly billing statements regularly. Students are expected to adhere to important dates and policies that impact fees. Billing due dates, fee reassessment dates and dates for financial holds and cancellations are posted on the Cashier’s website and through links on the eBill website. The non-payment of any financial obligation may result in additional collection fees and holds on students’ registration and records.
Every month, an email is sent to each student’s official email address, notifying him/her that a bill has been generated and is ready for viewing. Any payers authorized by the student on eBill will also receive a notification email. Notification preferences may be changed on the eBill site under the User Preferences option.
Through the MyView student system, students can access real-time detailed account and billing information, manage direct deposit and eBill user profiles, view their statement history, and make a payment through one convenient location in the Self-Service Student Center. The Student Center provides these features and even more drill-down capability, filters and self-help as well as greater access to information to enable and enhance the educational experience.
Payment of Fees
The Cashier’s Office offers several payment options, including a minimum monthly payment. The minimum payment can be found at the top of the monthly billing statement or by checking the percentage due as shown in the cancellation/financial hold-timeline on the Cashier’s website. If a student chooses to make the minimum payment or a partial payment, a finance charge of 1% of the Adjusted Amount Due will be assessed. The monthly 1% finance charge can be avoided by paying the balance in full.
The payment due date is the first day of each month. Student accounts will be subject to a $10 late fee if payment is not received by the due date shown on the monthly billing statement. All fees, fines, bookstore charges, etc. must be paid by the last day of the term. After the semester ends, unpaid accounts will be turned over to an outside collection agency. Collection agency fees of up to 50% of the unpaid account balance will be added to the student's account. Student accounts must be paid in full before a student will be permitted to register for upcoming semesters or receive transcripts or a diploma.
