Billing & Payment Information

Costs

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.

Tips for understanding your bill:

If the amount you see is a negative number:

      • You will receive a refund because your financial aid is more than enough to cover your balance at the university. You need to clear your bill online through the Office of Student Accounts web page (see the link to the left).

If the amount you see is zero (0):

      • Your financial aid is exactly enough to cover your balance at the university. You need to clear your bill online through the Office of Student Accounts web page (see the link to the left).

If the amount you see is a positive number:

      • You have a balance due to the university. In order to see what your exact charges are and the what financial aid has been credited towards your bill, click on the red link “View Statement” – this will give you a printable version of the bill.

If you do not see your financial aid credited on the bill:

Please check to see that all requirements of financial have been met. You can do this through your myVILLE Portal:

      • Log into your myVILLE student portal
      • Click on the Finances tab
      • Under the Financial Aid Requirements section, select the applicable aid year
      • This will tell you if you have any outstanding paperwork or documentation that needs to be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid - if you do, please complete all paperwork as soon as possible.

If your parents have applied for a Parent PLUS loan or you have applied for a Private/Alternative Loan, please remember: 

      • During peak processing times (June – August, and November – December), it may take 3-4 weeks from the time you have applied for the loan until we have received the information from your loan lender and can certify the loan on your account.
      • You cannot use the loan as a credit towards your bill until we have received initial information from your lender, certified the loan on your account 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 Office of Student Accounts 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 Office of Student Accounts to the left (under Quick Links).
