Using Your Aid to Pay Charges
Financial aid recipients are required to pay the difference between all University charges (including registration and tuition fees, on-campus housing and board plan) and pending financial aid. Payment is due by the Registration and Tuition Fee Payment Deadline:
July 31, 2013 for Fall Semester 2013
December 12, 2013 for Spring Semester 2014
If your pending financial aid for the semester is sufficient to cover your fees and charges, the balance due will automatically be deducted from your disbursement. All remaining aid, after charges and fees are deducted, will be disbursed to you via Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) or a check that is mailed to you. A "past-due" balance will show on your account after the fee payment deadline, even if you have sufficient financial aid to cover all fees, but you will not be dropped from any courses.
If your fees and charges are not paid by the Registration and Tuition Payment Deadline, you may be dropped from all enrolled courses, a late fee may be charged and other holds may be placed on your account.
On-Campus Housing Payments
If you will live in a residence hall, your outstanding University Housing charges will be deducted from your financial aid. Check your License Agreement for payment deadlines. Your University Charges will include amounts due according to your license fee schedule. If your financial aid is sufficient to cover these charges, it will be held for automatic payment to University Housing according to schedule. Financial aid recipients whose aid does not cover all charges must pay the difference by the posted dates. Students may check for outstanding charges by accessing the Finances section of their Student Center through their Portal Login.
