Dear Parent or Guardian:
I'm writing to update you on some policy changes at the University involving payment of tuition, fees, and where applicable, residence hall charges.
Beginning with the fall 2012 semester, your student's financial account with the University must be in good standing prior to the start of the semester. This means that your student's account must be paid in full, or they must be enrolled in an installment payment plan and current on the payments according to the University's payment schedule.
Students with unpaid balances as of August 16, 2012, will have their classes dropped. In addition, students with unpaid balances will not be permitted to move into their residence halls. Students whose classes have been dropped will need to prepay before being allowed to register again. Course selection will be limited.
The University offers an Installment Payment Plan (IPP). The IPP enrollment fee will be waived for the fall 2012 semester and can be used for current semester balances during the 2012-2013 academic year. If your student chooses the IPP option, they will need to enroll each semester. Information about the plan can be found online.
The Office of the Bursar and the Student Financial Aid Office are available to assist with understanding your bill, explaining the payment options available, and helping you and your student make sure their student financial account is in good standing by the due date. If you or your student are concerned about your ability to meet financial obligations to the University for the fall semester, please contact us now so we can assist you.
Please see below for information on financial services and resources available to you at the University.
