Billing and Payment Information

The Office of Student Accounts is paperless. All student account information can be found in Self-Service: Student Finance, which is more efficient and environmentally friendly. Tuition bills are generated electronically and not mailed.

We believe this will streamline the student billing process and help to meet the growing expectation of our students for online payment services while providing you with an accurate, current and secure statement of your account that is available anytime you want to see it.

Additional benefits and services provided with the online billing process include:

  • Student's ability to authorize other users (such as parents or spouse) to view and make payments toward their account
  • Ability to view payment history
  • Ability to view previous statements
  • Payment accepted by electronic check, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover Card. A nonrefundable third party processing fee of 2.7% is charged with all credit card payments. If any electronic checks are returned due to NSF, a $25 return fee may be added to the student account.
  • Automatic and immediate posting of payments to the student account

Bill Delivery

To view your bill, make a payment or add an authorized user, log onto Student Self-Service and go to Student Finance.

Payment Due Dates

Students who register for classes must pay all tuition and fees as billed unless they officially withdraw in the Office of Records and Registration or drop classes in Student Self-Service by the add/drop deadline based on the start date of a class. The University will not initiate withdrawals. Notifying the instructor or ceasing to attend the class does not constitute an authorized withdrawal. Students are eligible to receive a tuition refund or adjustment only when classes are dropped by the add/drop deadline. Please review Withdrawal and Tuition Refunds.

For students who are unable to pay the amount due in full by the semester due date, the University offers a five month payment plan:
