Tuition and Finances FAQs
When is tuition due?
Tuition, fees, housing, and meal plan charges are due at the beginning of the semester according to the Academic Calendar. If these charges are not paid or if a payment plan has not been set up by the deadline for the semester, a late payment fee may be assessed.
No paper statements or bills will be mailed. Students will receive an email notification to their student email account when a new e-bill has been posted. To view e-bills, go to Campus Connection and select "Student Center," then "Pay Online Now." Students are responsible for paying their charges whether or not they receive an e-bill notification or other statement.
How do I pay my tuition and fees?
Students have the convenience of paying their bills online through Campus Connection using check or credit cards. In-person payments can be made at One-Stop Student Services; visit them on the main floor of the Memorial Union to make cash or check payments.
To view your account balance or to pay online, go to Campus Connection and click "Student Center," then "Pay Online Now." Other payment details are found at One-Stop Student Services.

I have been awarded a tuition waiver; when will my tuition waiver be credited to my account?
Students are notified of their tuition waiver award via an emailed letter from the School of Graduate Studies. Tuition waiver awards are a paperless system and "acceptance" of your award is not required. However, you must notify the School of Graduate Studies if you wish to decline the award. Generally, waivers are applied to your tuition account by the end of the first week of the semester. Be sure to notify the Graduate School and the Space Studies Department if you will be unable to use the tuition waiver award so that it can be transferred to another student in need.
I have been awarded a graduate assistantship; what do I need to do?
The School of Aerospace Sciences' HR Department will send an award letter to you by email to notify you of your assistantship offer. If you accept the offer, you must sign your award letter and return it to the sender - electronically is acceptable. The deadline to accept your offer is the first day of classes for the semester of the award. You must complete all payroll documentation prior to your start date; coordinate this with the Space Studies Department. Finally, contact the faculty member you have been assigned to work with to schedule your work assignments and time schedule.
I want to drop a course; where do I find if I would be eligible for a refund of tuition and fees?
A 100% credit is automatically posted to your Campus Connection account ONLY during the first 9% of the semester/session for which you have dropped a class. Students will be responsible for 100% of tuition and fees charged for courses dropped after the first 9% of the semester/session. Courses can only be dropped utilizing Campus Connection. Go to One-Stop Student Services to view a schedule of refund allowances.
If you are registered for classes and want to unregister for ALL classes, this is considered as withdrawing from school. However, if you do not officially withdraw from school, you will be responsible to pay 100% of the tuition and fees charged to your Campus Connection account. You cannot officially withdraw from school online using Campus Connection; you must complete the online Cancellation/Withdrawal form found at One-Stop Student Services. Depending on the date of your withdrawal, you may be eligible for a pro-rated refund of tuition and fees. One-Stop Student Services will be able to provide you with the percentage of refund depending on the date of your withdrawal.
