If you are a university student, you have a student account. A student account is much like a bank statement, but it is solely used for financial transactions at the university such as tuition payments, fees, on-campus housing and other campus charges.
You can use your student account to keep track of all your college spending. Each time you register, cancel or add a course, or incur an ancillary fee, a charge is posted to your student account. The Office of Student Accounts assists students who have inquiries about the charges on their student accounts. The office is also responsible for billing, issuing refunds and administering the tuition payment plan.
The Cashier’s Office, on the other hand, is responsible for posting payments, making departmental deposits and issuing parking decals.
