Your Bill & Receiving Your Aid

Winter Quarter/Spring Semester Billing

The Bursar's Office is responsible for billing and will assess charges to your student account such as tuition, fees, housing and meal plans. Bills are sent on a monthly basis.

For the winter quarter and spring semester:

  • Initial bills will be sent on December 2nd.
  • The due date for that bill is December 22nd.

The initial bill lists tuition, fees and any other charges you have for the winter quarter or spring semester, as well as your authorized financial aid. In order for aid to be "authorized," it must be accepted and all requirements completed. Be sure to check PioneerWeb—any item with a red flag in the "Financial Aid Requirements" box requires additional action, and the award associated with that requirement will not appear as a credit on your bill until that item is satisfied.

When to Expect Your Financial Aid

Graduate Students:

Federal regulations prohibit institutions from disbursing financial aid any earlier than 10 days prior to the start of the term. The first day of classes for winter quarter is January 2nd, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on December 27th (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied).

Your financial aid will not pay until after the due date of the bill. That's OK! The Bursar's Office will not begin assessing late fees for unpaid balances until January. Just be sure your financial aid and any payment you make covers the bill. Use our estimated billing worksheet to get a better idea of what you might owe.

Law Students:

The first day of classes for spring semester is January 13th, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on January 3rd (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied). Your financial aid will not pay until after the due date of the bill. That's OK! Just be sure your financial aid and any payment you make covers the bill. Use our estimated billing worksheet to get a better idea of what you might owe.

Financial Aid Refunds

If your financial aid is more than the total of your charges, you may be eligible for a refund to pay other non-billable expenses. Refunds are typically generated by the Bursar's Office two to three business days after disbursement. We recommend setting up direct deposit to expedite the receipt of your refund.

To set up direct deposit for refunds:

  1. Log into PioneerWeb.
  2. Go to the Student tab.
  3. Click on the "Direct Deposit Info" link (located in the My Statement/Payment box).
