Billing & Payment Information
Federal regulations require all universities to establish a budget for students, including direct costs (those billed directly by the university) and indirect costs (those costs incurred by a student while attending school, but not billed by the university).
The budgets listed below have been created based on actual costs or as surveyed by our students (in the case of the indirect, non-billable costs).
Please note the costs listed are per YEAR and rates are subject to change; Costs are also based on full-time enrollment (15 credits for undergraduate students, 9 credits for graduate and teacher certification students).
Actual Room and Board charges will vary depending on the Residence Hall the student lives in and which meal plan is chosen.

If your parents have applied for a PLUS loan or you have applied for an Alternative Loan, please remember that during peak processing times (June – August and November – December), it may take 2-3 weeks from the time you have applied for the loan until we have certified the loan. You cannot use the loan as a credit towards your bill until we have certified the loan and received the final approval back from the lender. Please also realize that the financial aid awards, even though approved, will not pay to your account until around the beginning of the semester, so your account may still show a balance due until the funds have been received.
The Bursar’s Office will give a student credit for financial aid that has been approved and is set to disburse at the beginning of the semester. For more information on the types of payments accepted, please use the link for the Bursar's Office to the left (under Quick Links).
