Billing and Payment
eBill and ePay
An electronic option for billing and payment of tuition and fees is available at no charge to students and authorized payers such as their parents. Additional information on eBill and ePay can be found on the Student Financial Services website.
You are responsible for fulfilling your financial obligations to the University. If your bill is unpaid at its due date, you may incur a financial hold on your student account and you may also incur a $150 late payment fee.
Until all financial obligations are paid in full, the financial hold could cause:
- Registration to be cancelled or prevented
- Diplomas or transcripts to be held
- Enrollment or degrees to be unconfirmed
- You also are liable for any costs associated with collection of your unpaid bills, including, but not limited to, collection agency costs, court costs, and legal fees.
