When You’re Billed
Students are billed on a semester basis. You’ll receive an “estimate statement” in mid June for the fall semester and at the end of November for the spring semester. These statements are official bills but are subject to change based on changes in tuition (adding/dropping courses), board plans, room assignments, course fees, etc. After the add/drop period is over, (mid-September for the fall; mid-January for the spring) a final statement will be sent.
The important thing to note is that the estimated statement is an official bill. You’ll make payments on that but will get a final, more up-to-date bill later on. If you’ve overpaid, you’ll have a credit on your account that can be applied later. If you’ve underpaid, we’ll let you know.
How Your Loans are Applied
Stafford Loans will be reflected on your bill once we receive loan funds. (You’ll see them listed as “tentative” on your estimated bill until we receive them.)
Decide if You Want Tuition Insurance
All students are automatically enrolled in a tuition insurance protection plan and need to complete a signed waiver to decline coverage. Tuition insurance covers tuition, fees, room and board. To opt out, send us a letter asking to be waived from this service by mail, email or fax by August 25 (for the fall) and January 12 (for the spring). Late waivers will not be accepted.

Your Privacy Is Important To Us
FERPA (Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act), is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records and prohibits an educational institution from disclosing a student’s education records without consent from the student.
