What are my payment options?

Term

Bill Date

Due Date

Summer

March 20th

April 10th

Fall

July 20th

These dates represent the first billing for the term.  Registration or billing changes made after these dates will be reflected in subsequent monthly statements and due the 10th of the month following the change.

MA students may choose to utilize a payment plan for an additional fee.  The payment plan will divide their semester balance over 4 months, recalculated each billing period (see Billing Information for general calculation description).  The due dates for these payments are as follows:

I registered after the first bill date for my term; when is my first bill due?

Billing statements are run on the 20th of each month, and payment is due by the 10th of the following month. Students who register after the 20th will not receive their first bill until the following next month. However, because classes start before that time, they will still have a payment due.

 

How do I know how much to pay?

In order to access your amount due, please wait at least a week after your class registration is finalized. At that time, you will need to log onto your Self-Service account, select “Finances” in the menu bar across the top, then click on “Balance”. Select the coming semester from the drop-down menu on the left, and press Change. You should see the amounts update to reflect your current charges.

If you are using the payment plan for the semester, one-fourth of your balance will be due by the 10th. If you are not using the payment plan, the full balance listed is to be paid by that date. PLEASE NOTE: Students with overdue accounts after the 10th will be dropped from their classes for the semester.

 

I dropped a class; how much of a refund will I get?

Refunds are based upon the week that the official withdrawal form, signed by the Registrar and any applicable professors, is presented to the Student Accounts Office, NOT on the time a student ceases to attend classes.  A student withdrawing from school without consultation or consent of an appropriate administrator will not be entitled to any refund.  The percentage of tuition refunded is based on actual tuition cost charged to the student’s account and the schedule below:

No Attendance 100%
During first week 100%
During second week 100%
During third week 75%
During fourth week 60%
During fifth week 45%
During sixth week 30%
During seventh week 15%
During eighth week 5%
During ninth week 0%

*Refund schedules subject to change.  Please refer to your Student Handbook for the most recent information.

ROOM AND BOARD

MA Summer Session room and board is 100% refundable prior to June 1 and non-refundable thereafter.
