How do I understand my billing statement?
The left side of your statement lists all debits
. Debits are items that are charged to your account (examples include tuition, fees and parking fines). If you are eligible for a student refund, it will also be listed as a debit.
The right side of your statement lists all credits
. Credits are items that are received as payment to your account (examples include financial aid, payments, payment plan payments).
At the bottom of your statement are three totals: statement total, pending total
and amount due
Am I billed per class or per semester?
- Statement total: This is the total amount for this statement of all statement entries that have a date beside them.
- Pending total: This is the total amount for this statement of all statement entries that have “pending” beside them. It is the total of any pending financial aid or credits minus any pending debits.
- Amount due: This is the total amount due for the current statement. If the amount appears in parentheses, it is a credit balance.
All bills are for the semester, so the payment for your entire set of courses for the semester must be paid in full by the payment deadline. You may not pay for individual courses unless you are enrolled in one course per semester.
When is the payment deadline?
The payment deadline is 4:30 p.m. on the day of your first class per semester
How can I make sure a relative can discuss my bill with your office?
Legally, our office can only talk to you about your bill. If you wish to give us permission to speak with a parent, spouse or other relative, you can do so by completing a FERPA form
in the Academic Affairs office.

How do I get a student refund from excess financial aid?
Refunds will not be processed on excess financial aid until the funds are received by the University from each funding source. Refunds can only be issued if the financial aid posted exceeds the amount of tuition, fees and other applicable charges. Federal refunds are issued to students within 14 days of receipt of funds.
Students should check their CampusVue Student Portal
accounts before calling to ask about a refund check’s status. When your refund is ready, you will be notified at your student email address.
