FAQs (Student Accounts)
Each student will have an account, which includes charges/payments for tuition, fees, room and board, parking permits and fines, as well as any other charges from the university.
Tuition is due three weeks prior to the start of class. After that, a $55.00 late fee may be charged. Non-receipt of a bill does not relieve the student from paying by the due date.
You can get your bill in Self-Service or stop by our office. We mail the first statement of the semester to the home address on file. Payments are still due by our scheduled due dates, even if you did not receive a bill.
It is the responsibility of all students to monitor their student accounts regularly. Changes may occur to their bills or financial aid that would require their attention even after financial aid awards disbursed to their accounts. You can view your account at any time by going to Self-Service.

If you receive tuition reimbursement from your employer, you must submit a letter on company letterhead confirming your eligibility as well as the company’s reimbursement policy. This letter must be handed in at the start of the semester in order to avoid any late fees. Any fees or partial payments that are your responsibility must be paid by the current due date to avoid any billing holds. The only portion of the bill deferred through tuition reimbursement is the amount due from the company. If you need proof of payment for company reimbursement, you can contact us or log into Self-Service to print a statement showing your account paid in full. Please note that our office does not have access to grades; grade requests must be made through the Office of the Registrar or through Self-Service.
