Once Per Semester

Tuition, fees, and on-campus housing are billed once each semester and financial aid disburses to you once each semester.

Billing & Account Information

Your Tuition/On-Campus Housing Bill Gets Paid

As long as your total grants and scholarships exceed your bill and you’re enrolled full-time, your financial aid will apply directly to your account charges about a week before classes begin each semester to cover the balance. But, also keep a close eye on any other charges like eBooks or course supplies.

Receiving Aid

Enroll in eRefund

After your tuition, fees, and on-campus housing charges are paid in full, any remaining financial aid will be refunded to you for use on other expenses, like off-campus housing or books. Enrolling in eRefund will allow this money to be directly deposited into your bank account.

How to Enroll in eRefund

Books & More!

The money you have left after tuition and housing have been paid can be used for required course materials and supplies, and other expenses.
