Spring 2013 Billing Information
When will I receive a bill and when will the bill be due?
Bills will be mailed directly to students beginning in early December 2012. For students who have registered for classes for the Spring 2013 semester by December 9th, 2012, your bill will be due January 5th, 2013. For students who register for classes after December 9th, 2012, the due date will appear on your initial bill. For the Spring 2013 classes, you will be sent one paper bill. At the same time, you will also be able to view a copy of your initial bill online. After the initial semester paper bill is sent, you will be sent periodic updates regarding your financial status via email. The email message will be sent to your maine.edu address, and provide you with a link to the MaineStreet portal and will also contain instructions on how to pay any balance due or receive a credit refund. To view your student account details, please log into the MaineStreet portal: click the Student Self-Service link, click the Student Center link, and then under the Finances section, click on the double arrows next to Account Activity.
How can I view or pay my bill online or authorize others to pay for me?
By accessing TouchNet®’s Bill + Payment Suite through MaineStreet you can view your current account balance and unbilled account activity, view your initial bill, pay online using an electronic check, and authorize parents, family members and others to make payments for you. To access TouchNet®’s Bill+Payment Suite through MaineStreet, click on the Details/Bill/Pay link under the finances section on your Student Center. This will take you to your account summary page. On the account summary page, click on the green “View Bill/Payment Options” button. On the next page, click on the yellow Access TouchNet® Bill+Payment button.
What types of charges may appear on my bill?
In addition to tuition and fees the following charges may appear on your student bill: library fines, parking tickets, UMaine health insurance and other miscellaneous charges.
How do I avoid a late fee by filling out the anticipated resources screen?
If there are funds that have not yet been applied to your bill, you must enter information about those funds on the Anticipated Resources page in Self Service. To access Anticipated Resources from your Student Center, click on the Self Service menu, followed by Campus Finances. Examples of information that might be entered in this area because the funds are not yet showing on your bill include: outside scholarships, waivers or a graduate assistantship, installment plans that have been completed but are not showing on the bill, or payments that are being made by your employer or another agency. Charges that will be covered by the Anticipated Resources will be deferred but only if the anticipated funds are listed in Anticipated Resources. Please pay any remaining portion of the bill that will not be covered by funds listed in Anticipated Resources by the due date on the bill. Failure to provide this information and pay any remaining balance will result in a $100.00 late payment fee.
