My Cougar Connection
Students are responsible for planning an academic program that meets current requirements, including the required sequencing of classes. Students are responsible for meeting with their advisor before they register for classes to insure that intended courses meet a program requirement or elective. Students are responsible for the actions taken to register for courses, to drop courses, or add courses. This includes actions taken by registering on the web or in person at the Registrar's Office.
BILLING AND PAYMENT PROCEDURES
Account balance information is available on My Cougar Connection. Students will not receive a paper copy of their billing statement. It is the student's responsibility to monitor their balance. Payment of any balance not covered by financial aid is owed by the published due date. After this due date, students with a past due balance will be assessed late fees monthly. The student will be notified when late payment fees are applied to their account through their University e-mail.
UNPAID PAST DUE STUDENT ACCOUNT BALANCES
Continuing unpaid past due balances are subject to late payment fees and penalty or interest. Students are responsible for any and all collection costs and attorney fees associated with the collection of unpaid balances. Student accounts will be assessed a 25% collection fee on the unpaid account balance prior to being turned over to a collection agency.
The Office of Financial Aid reviews enrollment status on a rolling basis. Students will receive a new email each time awards are adjusted based on new information received including, but not limited to enrollment level or housing status. If information in the email is not correct, the student is responsible for notifying the Office of Financial Aid.
Students dropping or withdrawing from courses should notify the Office of Financial Aid to determine if this action requires an adjustment to the student's financial aid funding. Students are responsible to reply to requests for additional information in a timely fashion. An incomplete financial aid file will result in a delay of financial aid funding being processed and applied to the student's business office account. Students must have a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the Office of Financial Aid to be reviewed for financial aid eligibility.
I understand that it is my responsibility to make sure that I fulfill all requirements in the Office of Financial Aid so that aid and loans may be applied to my account at the start of the academic term. I understand and agree to the assessment of late payment fees, penalty or interest, and collection costs for unpaid past due balances.
I hereby agree that my Title IV funds (Federal Loans, Pell Grant, FSEOG Grant, etc.) may be used to pay any charges from the University of Saint Francis. I understand and agree to abide by all the policies stated in this document.
