Fall 2021 Student Bills

Fall 2021 student bills will be released to students via email on August 1, 2021 by Student Business Services. The E-bill will show the Fall portion of the merit scholarship as pending and will be posted to student accounts on August 23, 2021. Students should pay their balance minus the amount of their pending aid by the bill due date of August 20, 2021 to avoid late fees. More information about the E-bill can be found here.
