Office of Student Accounts
Student Financial Records
We maintain student financial records and respond to student financial inquiries. All tuition and fee transactions are maintained on the student account record. To be eligible to register for subsequent semesters, or to obtain copies of official transcripts or earned degree(s), the student's account must have a zero balance. Accounts with outstanding balances are subject to referral to third party agents for collections. Students are subject to liability for associated collection fees.
We provide a tuition installment plan for the general student population. We offer an interest-free payment plan option. Tuition is paid to third party agent Tuition Management Systems (TMS) in monthly installments.
We bill and receive third party agents for payment of tuition and fees. Appropriate forms from third parties must be submitted within specified deadlines. Students are responsible for outstanding amounts not paid or covered by the agent.
Perkins Loan Program
We establish and maintain the accounts of Perkins Loan recipients. We provide entrance and exit counseling for awardees. We provide loan counseling for all matters that pertain to the loan agreement.
We collect and post tuition and fee payments to student account records. We reconcile, and deposit all funds. We disburse check payments, and post transactions from various revenue sources.
