Using Your Scholarship Award
Your scholarship will be credited toward your bill ONLY after you authorize the university to do so. For this reason, a signature is required. If there is money left over after your bill is paid, you will be sent a check by mail 2-3 weeks after school begins.
Using Your Financial Aid Award
Your financial aid award will be credited toward your bill ONLY after you authorize the university to do so. For this reason, a signature is required. (Students who receive loans must sign a promissory note in the Financial Aid Office before the loan will be issued.) If there is money left over after your bill is paid, you will be sent a check by mail 2-3 weeks after school begins.
Paying The Full Amount On Your Own
If you are able, you may pay the full amount using cash, credit card, or check. Full payment can be mailed in (except cash) or placed in the drop box located on the north side of Smith Hall. Check the newspaper schedule for payment deadlines.
Paying in Two Installments
If you would like to pay in two smaller installments, you may request "fee deferral." Because paperwork is involved, fee deferral must be handled in person. A $30 charge is added to your bill for this service. In essence, McNeese pays your bill and you repay the university in installments. For this reason, you are responsible for repaying the university regardless of whether you drop one or ALL of your classes.
1st payment due prior to semester (except late registration)
2nd payment due during semester - check fee deferral agreements.
If you miss your payments or pay late, a $75 charge is added, and you are NOT eligible to use the fee deferral plan in the future. If you have questions, call 475-5107.
Even if your scholarship or financial aid covers your entire bill and your balance shows "ZERO", you must return your invoice to acknowledge the acceptance of the awards. This grants McNeese permission to use such monies to cover your expenses
