Paying the Bill

How the Bill is Calculated:

The bill is calculated as your charges minus your aid. Your charges are considered direct costs and include:

  1. Tuition
  2. Fees
  3. Room (on-campus)
  4. Board (on-campus)

You will also have indirect costs to consider that do not show up as part of your bill, such as books and supplies.

Checking to See if All Financial Aid has Disbursed to Your Account:

Your financial aid will appear as a credit to your account as soon as it is disbursed.  It will appear as Anticipated Aid until this point.  It it is possible to not have all your aid disburse at the same time.  If this happens, you check the item summary on your account on MaineStreet to see what has disbursed and what hasn’t.

When Financial Aid is Disbursed to Accounts:

During the Fall and Spring Semesters, aid will disburse no sooner than 10 days before the start of the semester (first day of classes).  During the Summer Semester, aid will not be available until the first day of your first summer course.

When You have a Negative Balance on Your Account:

If you have a negative balance you will be issued a refund.
