Billing & Payments

The Student Accounts Office manages the student billing and payment process, and The HUB serves as the front-facing center for related inquiries and services for students and families. 

Invoices are generated on the last day of each month. When an invoice is ready for viewing on Student Information Online (SIO), an email notification is sent to the student's Andrew email account. Also within SIO, students may view their most up-to-date student account balance and activity, register for Online Banking and electronic refunds, and invite other individuals to view their information or make payments on their behalf.
