Will I pay tuition for auditing a course?

The regular rate of tuition is charged for audited courses, and the audit course is counted as a part of the student’s semester load.  Part-time students will see tuition assessed for the audit course.  For full-time undergraduate students, a class may be audited without affecting tuition if the semester load with the audited class remains between 3.5 and 6.0 units.  If the audit course increases the semester load beyond 6.0 units, overload charges will be assessed accordingly.

Students who receive financial aid should discuss with the Financial Aid Office whether auditing a course will affect their aid award.

How often are invoices sent?

Invoices are prepared at the beginning of each month documenting activity in the account since the last invoice was published.  Students and their authorized payers will receive an e-mail notifying them that a new invoice is ready to be viewed. Tuition, room, & meal charges are included on these monthly invoices (August & November) along with miscellaneous charges such as library fines, parking tickets, health center fees, etc.  All charges should be paid by the due date noted on the invoice.

How do I set up an authorized payer?

Log into BannerWeb, go to Student Services/Pay Tuition and Fees. Click Authorize Payers from the left side menu. Click “Add New Payer” on the right side and fill out the information. When you are done, click “Add”. An email with the authorized payer link is sent to the email address indicated.
