Student Account Statements
Student Account Statement (Pre-Bill Report)
Is available on line in the student portal under the “My Finances” tab. This report summarizes the student’s tuition and fee charges, financial aid, payments made, and the resulting balance due to the student or the school. This report is available for new starts after access has been provided for online pre-orientation; and after the student's first semester, this report will be available after you have registered for your classes. The pre bill report will change real time as changes are made to your class schedule, financial aid or if payments are made. You should review the pre-bill report frequently so you can make any necessary financial arrangements to insure your tuition and fees are paid in full no later than the first day of classes after the add/drop period (per the pre-bill report and academic calendar) in accordance with established payment policies.
Is available on line in the student portal under the “My Finances” tab. This report represents the historical tuition and fee charges, financial aid and payments that have been posted to your student account (within a week after the add/drop period). After the final transactions have been posted to your student account the account information and pre-bill report will agree.
Forms of Payment AcceptedCheck (ACH) and credit/debit card payments can be made online in the student portal under the "My Finances" tab (no fee is charged for check (ACH) payments, however, a 2% convenience fee is accessed for credit/debit card payments (to set up an online payment from your checking or your credit/debit card account, go to the student portal and under the "My Finances" tab and select the proper links). Cash and checks are accepted and are posted upon receipt. In addition, student loans are received electronically throughout the term and will be posted to the students account immediately upon receipt.
Stipends (Refund Checks)
Student stipends occur when a credit balance is shown on your student account which is due primarily to financial aid payments (loans and scholarships), adjustments to your class schedule (during drop/add period), and or payments posted to your account, which are in excess of your charges. Your stipend can ONLY obtained by direct deposit (via ACH) into your bank account (paper checks will not be issued)- to set up: go to the student portal under the "My Finances" tab and select the proper links. It's very important to set up your stipend for direct deposit during the add/drop (during or before, the first week of classes) period to insure your stipend is not delayed! You will receive an e-mail and a web alert (student portal) when your stipend is ready.
Stipends that occur from loans are processed and provided to students throughout the semester within 3 business days of receipt of the loans. The first stipends will be distributed no later than one week after the add/drop period after all student academic status' and all student account adjustments are final.
Stipends that occur from over payments and changes to your class schedule, or from a leave of absence or a withdraw that occur during the add/drop period will be provided to the student during the second week of classes after all charges and payments have been finalized.
