Common Student Account Charges

In addition to tuition and fees, the Office of the University Cashier bills charges on behalf of a variety of other University departments. If you have a question about any of these charges, please contact the appropriate office directly. If a charge is removed, it will appear on your next bill as a credit.

Tuition is based on the student’s classification, which is determined by the program in which they are enrolled.

Most tuition is assessed based on credit-hour blocks, so each time a student adds or drops a course, tuition could increase or decrease based on the total number of credit hours.

If there are multiple tuition charges with different names, that means that your department divides tuition revenue into multiple accounts.

If courses were dropped by the Census Date, the total tuition charges for the term should equal the tuition amount listed for your total number of credit hours.

Line items on the student account that begin with the word FEE in all CAPS are part of the mandatory student fees that all students pay.

To read about more information on the FEES, please visit the Student Fees pages on our website.

Contact the General Alumni Association with questions about the alumni fee on the student account.

Campus Health will electronically file your primary insurance. Any amount not covered by insurance, including deductibles and co-insurance, will be considered your responsibility and transferred to your student account at the Office of the University Cashier. These charges appear as “Campus Health INV” along with the claim number. The posting is not specific to the exact nature of the service. The date of the charge indicates when it was placed on your student account, not the date of the service at Campus Health.
