*** IMPORTANT Information About Your Bill ***

If you see pending financial aid on your bill, subtract the amount of the aid from the entire balance. (Aid on your bill will appear as “memo” or “authorized.”) Should a change occur to your financial aid amount because of the verification process, you will receive another bill in September with the updated amount.
