Frequently Asked Questions About Student Accounts

1.  What is a student account?

A student account is simply the charges and payments related to a student's registration. A student bill is a summary of a student's account. Also, any incidental charges such as traffic fines, infirmary charges, ID replacement, etc. will become part of a student account.

2. When are payments due?

40% of your bill is due no later than the last day to register per the academic calendar. The remaining 60% will be due:

  • Fall Semester- October 1
  • Spring Semester- March 1
  • Summer Semester- July 1

* If any of these due dates fall on a weekend or holiday the balance is due no later than the following business day.

3. What if I do not pay by the payment deadline?

If the 40% is not met by the last day to register for classes you will be automatically purged (cancelled) from your classes without notice.

  • Seats in all classes are forfeited

There is no guarantee that seats in all courses will be available for re-submitted registrations.

4. Will I owe any money if I drop a class or withdraw from college?

Classes are prorated from the first day of classes. Please check the academic calendar for the percentages of the proration.

5. I cannot register / I haven't received my grades / I cannot receive a transcript. Is there a problem?

If all three of the above applies to your account you most likely have a financial hold on your student records.

A hold may be placed on your student records if you owe money for your semester bill. In addition, students may have holds placed on their records for reasons other than financial obligations. If you think you may have a hold on your student records, please check the Hornets Web to view the type of hold.
