Payment Information/Options (Choose One)
The complete balance (Estimated Balance) is due by the deadline date (for Fall 2013: July 31st and for Spring 2014: December 20th) or the day the student registers during regular registration.
Students have the option of participating in the deferred payment plan which consists of 5 equal payments for the fall semester and 5 equal payments for the spring semester. The deferred payment option requires payment of one-fifth of the 'Estimated Balance' by the deadline date (Fall 2013: July 31st and Spring 2014: December 20th) or the day the student registers during regular registration. The payment plan dates for the Fall 2013 semester are July 31st, August 31st, September 30th, October 31st, and November 30th. The payment plan dates for the Spring 2014 semester are December 20th, January 31st, February 28th, March 31st, and April 30th.
In order to take advantage of the deferred payment option, you will need a copy of your account statement (bill). You can view and/or print a copy of your account statement through the "Review Account" option under Student Information in CampusConnect.
After students have made their payment, they can check to see if they have 'cleared' by logging on to CampusConnect and clicking on Demographic Information. A 'Y' in the 'Cleared' field means that the Business Office has received the necessary payment. If the field is blank, the Business Office has not yet received your payment. The student should contact the Business Office if the student has questions regarding their 'Cleared' status.
Students Choosing to Participate on the Deferred Payment Plan
When signing up for the deferred payment plan on the Sallie Mae payment site, you will enter into a contract with Sallie Mae for the payment of your charges. Any time you change the contract amount agreed upon, you are required to update your contract amount on the Sallie Mae payment site under Manage Account. Changes include adding or dropping courses, adding or dropping student insurance, switching dorms, changing meal plans, etc. These changes must be made on the Sallie Mae payment site so that your future payments will be correctly adjusted on the deferred payment plan.
A student finding it necessary to withdraw from the university must officially withdraw through the Registrar's Office. This official withdrawal must be completed before the Business Office can give any consideration for a refund. The Business Office adheres to the refund guidelines established in the University catalog.
Failure to attend class or simply notifying an individual instructor or other University personnel of interest to withdraw is not regarded as an official withdrawal.
Refunds of credit balances on student accounts will be made only after financial aid has been posted and the account is paid in full.
All accounts must be paid in full before a student will receive a diploma or a transcript, or be permitted to register for subsequent semester(s). In the event it becomes necessary to place a student account in the hands of an agency for collection, the student will be responsible for all collection costs, including legal fees. If there are any questions regarding financial arrangements, please call the Business Office. Receipts will be required for resolution of account discrepancies.
Personal checks of up to $15.00 per day may be cashed in the Business Office. A current student ID is required. A fee of $25.00 will be charged for all returned checks.
