Billing statements are currently mailed out the first week of the month. Students can view their account activity in "real time" through their Self-Service account.
Student Financial Services is excited to announce that we will soon be going paperless with no paper statements being mailed. An email will be sent once that process goes live. Please check your statement in Self-Service regularly and contact us with any questions.

Military Tuition Assistance schedule for returning unearned TA
(TA return policy only for service members using military tuition assistance)
The Department of Defense requires that schools return any unearned TA funds on a proportional basis through at least the 60% completion portion of the course regardless of the reason for withdrawal. Any unearned funds returned go directly to the military service and not to the service member. Any adjustments to TA funds may leave a balance to the school. This unpaid balance is the responsibility of the student.
