All questions regarding accounts, tuition and fees should be directed to Student Financial Services.
You want to familiarize yourself with the deadlines for registration and payment as they go hand in hand. Student Financial Services is the unit to which you should direct any questions about fees or deadlines for those fees. If you do not make payment arrangements by appropriate deadline you will be deregistered.
Billing and payment are done on a semesterly basis rather than annually. Once you have registered for your courses you will see the fees reflected on your account on WebAdvisor. It takes approximately 72 hours for the payment to be reflected on your account.
With the appropriate approvals a graduate student who withdraws from the university may be eligible for a refund of part of the fees, to be effective as of the date upon which the withdrawal notice is received in the Office of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies. Outstanding Library fines and charges are deducted from the calculated refund. You should be aware that you may be asked to return government loans or external or internal scholarships.
A student will be placed on financial sanction when they fail to settle their account (pay in full or have an arrangement for payment approved by Student Financial Services) by the published payment deadline date. Financial sanction will prevent you from seeing your final grades, obtaining an official transcript and selecting courses/registering for the following semester. For the sanction to be lifted, you must pay the remaining balance on your account. As a graduate student, you must be registered every semester unless you are on an approved Leave of Absence.
