Understanding My Bill

Charges are applied when you register for classes. Your bill will include tuition for the semester or the term you just registered for, as well as other applicable charges and fees. Charges may also be applied throughout the semester in the form of fines and penalties, registration activity, prorated room and board, updated financial aid awards, etc. You should check your account statement online regularly to stay informed about your account and avoid overdue charges.
