  • All late payments and financing charges will be waived until the end of the semester.

  • You will not receive a bill until the refund process has been put in place and communicated to you.

  • If the adjustments produce a credit balance on the student account, a refund will be issued to the student. More information about refunds can be found by visiting the Cashiers Office.
