Billing Notifications:

Bills are available electronically (e-Bill) through the student’s self-service portal by clicking on the “Student Finance” box, then “Account Activity”. Click on “View Statement” on the upper right hand side to print a detailed bill.  Students should review their account activity periodically to confirm that a change or adjustment has not been made creating a balance due.

Students who will be residing on campus and have been assigned a room will see their Room & Meal Plan costs on the Account Activity screen. Students who have indicated they will be residing on campus and do not see housing as part of their bill, should contact the Residence Life Office.

Prior to each due date, a reminder Email notification will be sent to the student’s Centenary University email. Monthly reminders will also be sent to the student’s email account until the balance has been paid.

Important Note:

Current Students who will not be attending the Fall 2020 semester must submit a Withdrawal/Leave of Absence form to the the Registration Office no later than August 28, 2020. Withdrawn/Leave of Absence students who do not complete the proper forms by the deadline will be responsible for the costs of the semester, regardless of attendance.

Newly Admitted Students who will not be attending the Fall 2020 semester must submit a cancellation notification to the Admissions Office no later than August 28, 2020 or they will be responsible for the costs of the semester, regardless of attendance.

Non-payment of tuition & other charges, non-attendance in classes or notification to an instructor do not constitute appropriate notification of withdrawal or cancellation. A student who fails to withdraw or cancel officially waives the right for consideration of any refunds.

The University reserves the right to change costs, dates and procedures at its discretion.

Outstanding/Delinquent Balances:

If term balances are not paid, students will not be able to register for future terms, receive grades or transcripts until the balance is paid in full. If an account remains delinquent, the account will be placed with a 3rd party collection agency. The student will be responsible for all past due charges as well as collection agency contingency fees (up to a maximum of 50% of the delinquent account balance), late payment penalties, reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs and the account will be reported to the credit bureau.
