Payments

Housing payment amounts vary depending on type of accommodation and meal plan. Included in the total cost is a $375 non-refundable initial payment, which must be submitted with the License Agreement to reserve your space. Your initial payment will be deducted from your total amount due and is not a deposit. If you have a 9-month lease, you have the option of paying the remaining amount in eight payments, August through April. If you have an 11.5-month lease, you have the option of paying the remaining amount in ten payments, August through June. Youmay also make as many payments as you like in advance. Please find the payment schedules below. 

The university uses a centralizedStudent Statement eBillsfor invoicing student's housing costs. Student Statement eBills are issued electronically (unless you have paid in advance and no payment is due).

Actual statement dates can be found at Student Account Services. You will be sent an e-mail, to the e-mail address in your WebPortal, directing you to a secure website to receive the eBill. Make sure that the student's address in the WebPortal is updated with the correct information. Students are responsible for all amounts due - late payments are subject to a $20 late charge assessed by the University Cashiers Office. The eBill system allows students to add multiple e-mail addresses to receive notification of the bill and allows multiple users to view the bill.
