Billing, Loans, and Work Study

The Bursar’s office handles student billing for the University. The Bursar’s office is located on the third floor of the Barnes & Noble Bookstore at 58th and Ellis. They’re open 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.

The first autumn bill will be mailed August 27th and is due September 21st. Your bill will be sent to your current address in cMore. Please update and verify your contact information in cMore.

If your bill is not paid by the due date, you will be charged a $50 Late Payment Fee and issued another bill. If the second bill is not paid by the due date you will be charged an additional $100 Late Payment Fee.

If you receive a bill and it does not show all of the aid you expected, please contact Jackie Hill at, 773.702.8414. However, you must pay the portion of the bill for which you are responsible by the due date or you will be charged a Late Payment Fee.

Additional information regarding billing policies and dates can be found on the Bursar’s website.

Students who wish to apply for loans and/or work study should complete the loan application through the University’s Student Loan Administration.
