Understanding Your Account
Account Balance: This reflects your charges minus any estimated aid. This balance is not reduced by your monthly payment plan amount. The account balance should be paid by the due date.
Charges: The account balance before any estimated financial aid or payment plan amounts are applied.
Estimated Financial Aid: This section lists any pending Federal Direct, or institutional Loans for the current semester. These loans will be credited to the student’s account ten days prior to the start of the semester, in accordance with federal regulations.
A 1% late fee will be assessed on the last working day of each month until paid. This includes amounts left unpaid because late outside scholarship payment, external grants, monthly payment plan amounts, etc. Additionally, inaction on federal loans can affect disbursement of institutional grants. Please ensure all action is taken and monies are received by the due date.
The annual tuition permits a student to take a maximum of 18 hours each semester. An additional excess hour charge is made for each registered hour over 18. All excess hour charges are billed by Student Accounts. Under certain circumstances, students may petition to have the charge waived by completing a petition form with the Registrar’s Office.
For more details or to obtain a petition form, contact the Registrar’s Office. A part-time student (8 hours or fewer per semester) is charged the hourly rate for each semester hour of credit.
If there is a credit balance on your account, you may request a refund by completing a Request for Refund form.
Financial aid (scholarships, loans, grants, etc.) will not be refunded until after the tenth day of classes of the semester for which they were awarded. Normal processing time for refunds is ten days. You may request the refund be sent to you or your parent.
