From the Office of the Bursar:

Students are expected to pay their fees in full according to the Fee Payment Schedule and Payment Procedures listed in the registration guide. Failure to pay fees by the appropriate due date may result in assessment of late payment fees and financial holds.

Approved scholarships, including non-resident graduate scholarships and alumni grants, will be applied to students' accounts prior to the billing statement.  Approved financial aid (Pell, CAP, SEOG, Perkins, Stafford, PLUS) will be reflected on the billing statement. All students, including financial aid recipients, are required to submit any balance due payments by the deadline based upon their registration dates. Refer to the chart below to determine applicable tuition due dates based upon registration dates.

If you register and decide not to attend, you MUST drop all classes prior to the first day of classes on TopNet or by notifying the Registrar's Office in writing to ensure that you will not owe tuition and late payment fees and receive "F" grades. You are responsible for your own enrollment status.

Failure to receive an e-bill does not relieve the student of the obligation to pay tuition and fees by the due date

For questions, please call the Billings and Receivables Office at (270) 745-6381.
