    Tuition Payment Agreement
    The Tuition Payment Agreement is the financial agreement and legal obligation between the student and the University. The agreement needs to be signed by every student and returned to the Office of Business Affairs by July 31.
    Title IV Authorization
    Federal regulations require the University to secure authorization to maintain a credit balance on any student account receiving Federal Title IV Authorization funds. Signing this form authorizes the University to use the funds to pay any charges incurred on the student account each semester and to pay expected future charges within the current year.
    FERPA (Business Office Release Only)
    Under Federal Law, the student must provide names of persons authorized to discuss the students billing account with the Office of Business Affairs.
    Financial Clearance
    Students must be financially cleared by the Business Office to move into campus housing and start classes. Financial Clearance means you either paid your outstanding balance or made appropriate arrangements to pay the semester charges by the payment due date.

How to Pay Your Bill
