Frequently Asked Questions

When are payments due for tuition bills?

All bills must be paid by the due date or upon receipt recorded on the billing statement or as displayed on Regis Access. Upon receipt means payable when received or posted to Regis Access. The exact due date or the phrase "upon receipt" will be printed on the billing statement. Bills for the fall semester are due early August and Bills for the spring semester are due approximately mid-December. Students registered for summer sessions will receive a bill with a specific due date or payable "upon receipt" printed on the billing statement.


How do I receive my bill?

All student bills are posted to Regis Access. Paper statements are only mailed to first semester undergraduate students.


How can I change my billing address?

Please send your change of address in writing, to the Registrar by email or immediately to the Center for Student Services located in College Hall 221.


What are the late payment fees and when will they be charged?

A late payment fee in the amount of $100 may be assessed on all outstanding balances after the due date of the billing statement. Additional late payment fees of $100 may be assessed 30 months after the first late fee.


When is a student account satisfactory?

Billing statements include tentative credits for expected financial aid. This expected financial aid might include federal and state loans and grants, and outside loans. In calculating the balance due for a semester these amounts are deducted from the billing statement as if they had already been received. Tuition Management Systems (the university's third-party payment partner) monthly payment plans are also deducted from the billing statement. The university allocates one-half of the total amount due from TMS to be applicable to each semester. Please note amounts remitted from TMS will be reflected on the billing statement only when received by the university. A student account is considered satisfactory only when payment is received in full or if the total amount of actual credits combined with the total amount of expected financial aid equals or exceed the semester’s charges.


What is the difference between a tuition bill and a Statement of Account?

They are the same. These terms are used interchangeably. The tuition bill is actually a statement of account because it shows all of the transactions for the current academic year, as well as displaying the unpaid balance, at any point in time.


What happens if I am unable to pay my account balance in full by the due date?

You must visit the Bursar to establish a financial plan. We also recommend that you immediately visit the Office of Financial Aid for additional financial assistance. Financial Aid staff is available to assist you in exploring your options. Not contacting the Bursar to establish a financial payment plan will result in late payment fees. We recommend that you advise the Bursar of your financial situation in advance to avoid late payment fees.


Is tuition reimbursement from my employer a third-party sponsor?

No, not usually. Since tuition reimbursement programs usually return funds to employees directly, the university does not consider them Third Party sponsorships. You will have to pay the university by the expected billing statement due date and then obtain reimbursement from your employer.


What is a "hold"?

A hold is a restriction placed on your account, your education records, or other privileges for failure to comply with your financial obligation. The Bursar places holds on student records for various reasons, the most common being failure to make payment by the payment due date.

Holds may prevent:

  1. Registration for future terms
  2. Release of transcripts
  3. Receiving a diploma
  4. Immediate access to residence halls at the beginning of a semester.
  5. Possible continuation of services

If a student defaults on payment of a federal Perkins loan or fails to satisfy loan exit interview requirements, a security interest in records and services will remain in effect until all requirements are satisfied.


What do I do if my account has a hold and I am prevented from registering?

You need to find out what type of hold is on your account and then contact the appropriate office to make arrangements to rectify the situation and remove the hold. The Bursar’s Office will only remove holds upon receiving expected payment.
