Student Account Billing:

Student account statement information is available at Web Advising . Billing and payment information is updated daily. There are six (6) payment due dates each year including three (3) term due dates prior to the start of the term. Students should grant access to the Parent Portal on Web Advising to allow their parents to view their student account. Students and parents with Web Advising accounts will receive an email informing them when there is a payment due date approaching. The email will contain a link to log in with your user name and password and view the billing information.  You can go online at any time to view current or previous billing information.  Web Advising will also have links to the electronic payment gateway, student health insurance, financial aid and monthly payment plans.

Students may grant access to parents/relations as described below.
