Analyzing Your Fall ’20 Account

Starting Fall ’20, all fees on your student account (including Housing) will be split equally into four (4) installments.

In the Finances section of your Student Center, you can view your Account Summary, review an itemized list of charges and payments, and identify how much each installment is, and what date they must be paid by.

To start a review of your account, click the “Account Inquiry” link:

In the Account Summary page, you can identify what is “Due Now”, and what is due later (“Future Due”).

Important:  Amounts shown next to “Due Now” may not reflect the total owed to the university.  “Due Now” amounts are any charges due within the next 30 days.  Any charges due beyond the next 30 days will show as “Future Due”.

To review all activity on your student account, click the “Activity” link:

On the “Account Activity” page, you can review all charges, payments, and refunds.  You can filter by a date range, or by Term.

Important (new for Fall ’20):  Because all charges are automatically split into four installments, each charge will be listed four times on this page, with each line representing one-fourth of the total fee for the term.  For example, the ASI fee is $75 per term.  Since the fee is due in four installments, each installment is listed at $18.75 (for a total of $75).

To review the amounts that are due, and by what date, click the “Charges Due” link:

In the “Charges Due” page, you can easily identify how much is due, and by what date.  Each due-date is listed, with a due amount, and a running total that identifies the total fees for the term.  In the example below, the student had four equal installments of $965.25, and the $150 enrollment deposit applied towards the first installment, leaving an amount of $815.25 due on 8/26/2020.

Important: Because all charges on your student account are split into four installments, when you make your first installment, you will have paid 25% of each fee on your account.  Although there are four due-dates, students can pay in excess of the due amount, or pay in-full, as long as the minimum due-amount is paid by each due date.
