Invoice & Student Account

The Student Accounts Office generates invoices on the last day of each month and sends email notifications to student Andrew email addresses when the invoice is ready for viewing. Invoice notifications are also sent to those enrolled in My Plaid Student (MPS). Student account balances may change frequently, so all students are encouraged to visit Student Information Online (SIO) to view their most up-to-date balance and activity.

Students who graduate or withdraw will continue to receive invoices through the fiscal year of their graduation or withdrawal (i.e., through June 30). If a graduated or withdrawn student carries a balance past May in that same fiscal year, or generates a new balance, invoices will continue for two months following payment in full.

Departmentally supported students and sponsored students will continue to receive invoices in addition to the unique billing and payment processes associated with their enrollment.

Payment Due Dates

Charges incurred during the month are due on the 15th of the following month. 

The amount due on your student account may adjust as classes are added or dropped, but payment should be made based on the amount due on the latest invoice.

Students and families can use a wide variety of payment options to pay balances due.

Your Invoice & Authorized Bill Payers

CMU does not mail paper invoices. If someone else (i.e., parent, family member, spouse) pays your invoice, we recommend inviting them to use My Plaid Student (MPS), where they can view your invoice and make payments, and authorizing CMU to email a PDF copy of your monthly invoice to them.
