  • Health Insurance must be waived online (each year) by the published deadline or students will be responsible for full payment.
  • Monthly bills include other student charges and any balance carried forward.
  • Pending Financial Aid means that funds are not able to be disbursed and documents may be outstanding.  Students should check Financial Aid Online to ensure all required documents have been received.
  • Pending Financial Aid will only show from July to September for the fall and December to January for the spring on the bill and Online AR Account Activity.
