Federal student financial aid (subsidized, unsubsidized, PLUS, Pell Grant, etc.) is eligible to pay tuition, housing, and meal plan charges. Students have the ability to authorize the use of federal funds to pay charges other than tuition, housing, and meal plan when signing the Billing and Payment Student Agreement. If a student authorizes the use of federal aid to pay these “other” charges, the Billing Office will apply current semester aid to current semester miscellaneous charges on the bill before issuing a refund of excess financial aid. After excess financial aid has been refunded, the student is responsible for reviewing the U-Bill and making payment each month.
