The account summary will list the amount of tuition and fees for the semester, room and board (housing and dining) charges for students living in residence halls, and other miscellaneous charges you owe to the university.
As long as you have met all program requirements and are enrolled for the same number of hours for which your aid was awarded, financial aid to be received for that semester will be credited to the bill.
If the amount of your financial aid is greater than the amount you owe the university, there will be a credit balance. At the beginning of each semester, a refund of the credit balance will be deposited into your bank account if you signed up for direct deposit or mailed to your local address.
If charges exceed the amount of financial aid, you will need to make a payment to the Office of the Bursar. If you are unable to pay the balance in full, you may use the university installment plan.
If financial aid is not credited to your account, payment is still due to the Office of the Bursar. Failure to pay the amount billed by the due date will result in the assessment of a late fee.
If aid is not credited to your account, check to be sure that you have completed all necessary paperwork required to receive your financial aid. The most common financial aid delays occur because the following items have been overlooked.
When these items are resolved, aid will be credited to your account provided you meet all eligibility requirements.
If your account is not correct by the time you arrive on campus for classes, you should come to the OFAS to resolve the problem.
