Payment Information and Options

Fall semester bills are ready for viewing the first week of July, with payment due August 5, and spring semester bills are ready to view the first week of December, with payment due January 2. Late payments can generate a late payment fee and will jeopardize registration and enrollment status, preventing students from:

  • pre-registering for courses;
  • participating in field study, leave exchange, or leaves of absence;
  • obtaining a transcript or degree;
  • participating in the spring housing lottery.

Federal regulations on the right to privacy require that bills be in the student's name; therefore, the student bears the responsibility for payment. Granting online access for a third party to view and pay bills does not relieve the student of ultimate financial responsibility for unpaid balances.
