Bursar FAQs

Billing

What are the course fee charges on my bill?

Some classes require additional expenses not covered by tuition. Typically, these fees are for extra materials for the class. Class fees are generally listed in the Schedule of Classes publication and on the MySlice class search website. An explanation of what class fees cover should be included on the syllabus or the student can speak with their professor, or department chairperson, or the Dean’s Office to find out exactly what the fees cover.

How much are late fee charges?

If the balance on the account is $499.99 or less, the fee is $85.00. If the balance on the account is $500.00 or greater, the fee is $120.00.

How do I pay my bill by electronic funds transfer (EFT) or credit card?

Visit the Make a Payment section of our website. The fee for credit card payments is charged by a third-party vendor contracted to process credit card payments for those wishing to use them for payment of their bill. It is not a fee charged by the University.
