How do I add an Authorized User?
Students who have someone else helping with their tuition payments need to add them as Authorized Users in the Payment Portal so they can also view billing statements, make payments, and enroll in the payment plan.
From the Payment Portal, go to the Setup Menu on the right, select Authorized Users and add the email address and name of who you're giving authorization to. They will receive an email from the Cashiers Office with a temporary password that expires in 24 hours. This often lands in junk/spam folders so be sure to have them check there.
Authorized Users will have their own login to the portal. User name will be their full email address.
How do I get a refund if I have a credit balance?
Credit balances are designated by a negative balance on your account.
Complete the online Refund Application. Once all electronic signatures are received your refund will be processed within 7-10 business days from eligibility. NOTE: If a Federal Parent PLUS Loan is on the account, student must include parent contact information on page one. Parent will receive a separate email with a link to sign the form electronically.
Cashiers do not begin to process refunds for a semester until after the first week of classes. Exception: Grad/Nursing/PA students can begin receiving refunds the first week of classes.
How do I know when my Refund is Completed?
You will receive an email from the cashiers office stating that your refund has been mailed. If you have a direct deposit (electronic refund) account set up in the payment portal, your refund will default to direct deposit (even though the email says it was mailed.)
How do I pay with a 529 or College Savings Plan?
