Billing and Payment Policies

Cazenovia College expects the student to be financially responsible. All accounts are carried in the name of the student, regardless of the source of payment.

The following information is provided to assist you in understanding the billing and payment procedures at Cazenovia College.  For more information, please contact us at 315-655-7888 or by e-mail at bursar@cazenovia.edu.

Billing
Students may view their Student Account Statement in the Student Finance Section in WebAdvisor. The first charges for the fall semester are made available in June. The spring semester charges are made available the last week of November. These initial statements list tuition and applicable fees, room and board for residential students as well as estimated financial aid, payments and the balance due. Activity on your account after the initial Student Account Statement is created may affect the amount you are responsible to pay. Such activity could include adding or dropping a class, changing housing status or meal plans, bookstore charges or changes to your financial aid package including outside funding sources (loans, scholarships, etc). 

Email communication to the student are sent to their Cazenovia College email address letting them know when their Student Account Statement is available.  However, students are encouraged to stay informed on a regular basis by accessing the Student Finance section in WebAdvisor at any time throughout the year.

Estimated Financial Aid
The Bursar/Student Account Office will accept credit against the Student Account balance for estimated financial aid under the following circumstances:

Institutional/Merit Awards:
Credit will be recognized when the award is added to the Financial Aid Package.

Outside Scholarships:
Awards from outside sources will not appear on the Student Account statement. Credit can be recognized against the balance due on a temporary basis with the receipt of written documentation from the awarding agency.  Actual credit will be given when the funds are received.

TAP/State Awards:
Credit will be recognized when the student has received an award certificate from New York State HESC.

Student Loans:
Credit will be recognized when verification is complete, the award letter signed and returned, and in the case of first time borrowers, when the MPN and entrance interview are complete.

Parent PLUS Loans:
Approval of the PLUS Loan is necessary.  Processing requires the MPN and application when the parent is a first time borrower or a new borrower for a current student.  Repeat borrowers must file the application annually.  Please visit www.studentloans.gov for more information.

Alternative Loans:
Alternative Education Loan funding sources vary greatly by lender.  Consequently, estimated credit will be recognized when loan guarantee is received by the Cazenovia College Financial Aid Office from the lender, and then only on loans that require school certification and direct payment is made to the college.

NOTE:  Loans in which borrowers opt for variations such as no school certification or in which funds are sent directly to the borrowers are not recognized for advance credit.

Although Work-Study may be part of your Financial Aid package, but is not a guarantee of employment and will not be deducted from your Student Account.

TuitionPay Monthly Plan:
As an alternative to large annual or semester payments, and to help limit borrowing, Cazenovia College offers a budget plan through TuitionPay.  For a small enrollment fee ($55 per year) families can budget convenient, interest-free monthly payments beginning July 1.  The semester contracted amount will be recognized as a credit against the Account balance for TuitionPay Plans in a current status.  Further information can be received at www.TuitionPayEnroll.com

Payments
You are responsible for payment in full of your Student Account balance minus estimated financial aid.  The payments are due as billed unless noted otherwise. The Fall Semester billing is due on August 3, 2015 and the Spring Semester billing is due on January 4, 2016.

Cash payments are accepted in person at the Business Office and the Office of Enrollment Services. If you have questions, please contact the Enrollment Services Center at 315-655-7888.

Restricted Enrollment Status (HOLD)
Failure to pay Account balances by the due date places the student on Restricted Enrollment Status (HOLD).  Students on HOLD will not be allowed to register for classes, confirm existing pre-registrations, obtain transcripts or receive other not-essential services until their accounts are brought current.  Please contact the Office of Enrollment Services at 315-655-7888 for assistance with HOLD resolutions.
