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 financial account with the University must be in good standing prior to the start of the semester. This means that your account must be paid in full or you must be enrolled in an installment payment plan and current on your 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 you choose the IPP option, you will need to enroll in it 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 you in understanding your bill, explaining the payment options available, and helping you make sure your student financial account is in good standing by the due date. If you are concerned about your ability to meet your financial obligations to the University for the fall semester, please contact us now so we can assist you.
