Your Bill & Receiving Your Aid

Summer and Fall 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.

Summer quarter:

  • Initial bills were sent on June 1st.
  • The due date for that bill is June 22nd.

Fall quarter:

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

The initial bill lists tuition, fees, housing (if living on campus) and any other charges you have for the summer quarter, as well as your authorized financial aid. In order for aid to be "authorized" and appear on your bill, 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 type of aid associated with that requirement will not appear as a credit on your bill until that item is satisfied.

When to Expect Your Financial Aid

Summer Quarter:

Your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on June 11th (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes). Refunds will be generated on June 15th.

Use our estimated billing worksheet to get a better idea of what you might owe.
 

Fall Quarter:

Federal regulations prohibit institutions from disbursing financial aid any earlier than 10 days prior to the start of classes. The first official day of the term for fall quarter is September 11th, which means your financial aid will disburse to your student account and pay toward your charges on September 1st (as long as all financial aid requirements have been satisfied and you're enrolled in classes). Refunds will be generated on September 3rd.

Your financial aid will not pay until after the due date of the bill. That's OK! Just be sure that the financial aid scheduled to disburse and any payment you make will cover your 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 2-3 business days after disbursement. We recommend setting up direct deposit in order 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).

A note about Parent PLUS loans:

If your parent borrowed a Parent PLUS loan, any refund owed will be sent directly to the parent via mailed check. However, if the student's financial aid (without the PLUS loan) is greater than the bill, those excess funds will first be refunded directly to the student. The additional PLUS loan amount will be refunded to the parent unless otherwise requested.

If you wish to have the refund from a Parent PLUS loan sent to the student instead of the parent, please contact our office to make that request.
