Clearing your account means you have made financial arrangements to pay your tuition and fees to the college. These arrangements may include a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, third-party tuition payments, and/or personal funds. Once you have cleared your account, you will know how much money you owe the college or how much money you should expect will be refunded to you if you have financial aid in excess of your charges.
You will need the following items to navigate the account clearing process:
Your account should contain tuition, mal-practice insurance premium, health insurance premium, student body fee, technology fee, dorm fees (if applicable), and may also contain other fees that vary by course.
If the charges on your Statement of Account are not correct, contact the Accounting office as soon as possible.
The Net Accepted Financial Aid listed in the top section of the worksheet should be the same as your Financial Aid Award letter with these exceptions
If the Net Accepted Financial Aid is not correct, contact the Financial Aid office as soon as possible.
You must clear your account online through WebAdvisor by the deadline indicated on your Financial Worksheet. After this date, you can no longer clear your account online and must visit the Accounting Office for clearance.
You must pay the amount you owe the college either online, through the mail or in person in the Accounting Office (Loveridge Hall, Suite 33B) by the deadline shown on your Financial Worksheet.
