Students’ account balances must be paid in full, or payments arrangements must be made, prior to registration. Account balances must be resolved before diplomas or transcripts can be issued. Payments can be made within the office via check, credit/debit card, cash or money order.

Students entitled to refund checks can pick them up in the Office of Business Affairs or choose to receive them electronically. Students anticipating a refund check should ensure the Office of Business Affairs has their correct bank account information.
